Haley Sanchez (born February 1993) is an American-born actress best known for her roles in movies such as Generation (2021) and Redress (2019). Most of the cast members on Generation are relatively new to the industry, but Haley might just be the newest of them all. Her role in the series marks her very first TV credit. According to IMDB, her only other on screen appearance was in a short film in 2019 called Redress.
Early Life and Career
Despite growing up around performers and having her own natural talent, Haley has still undergone training to help her get the most of her skills. She studied at Actor’s Edge in San Luis Obispo in California. When discussing her experience she said, “Aaron (Actor’s Edge Head Instructor) genuinely cares about his students. He really helps you become the best actor you can be whatever skill level you’re at. I took Aaron’s classes and continue to coach with Aaron. We worked on my self-tape and callback for Generation together. In both coaching and his classes Aaron allowed me to see things that I never knew were there. ”
Acting may be Haley’s main focus now, but when she was younger she was all about modeling. She started modeling when she was just a year old and got the chance to work with Warner Brothers. At 4-years-old, she signed with Acme Talent and Literary and continued to model for several years.
Despite the fact that Haley is playing a high school student in Generation, her real life high school days are quite a ways behind her. Her page on IMDB reports that she was born in February of 1993, and she still has a very youthful appearance.
Generation may be Haley’s first TV acting credit, but it’s not technically her first time on TV. In 2008, she and her mother appeared on the short lived reality competition show I Know My Kid’s A Star. During the series, ten parent/child pairs lived together in a house while the children competed in various contests each week. The winner earned a $50,000 prize and a year contract with an agent.
Sometimes it can take a few tries before a person finds their niche, and that seems to have been the case with Haley. In 2018, she released a singe titled “Separate Ways” under the name Haley DeMarco. As far as we can tell she hasn’t released any other songs and it doesn’t appear that she has any plans to.
Even though she’s just getting started in her career, Haley already understands the importance of using her platform to stand up for what she believes in. Haley currently has a link in her bio to a petition on Change.org that is asking for signatures to show support for a young protester who was arrested over the summer.
Haley couldn’t have asked for a better experience for her first TV role. Not only does she get to be part of a great show, but she gets to do it with an awesome group of people. Haley and the rest of the cast members on Generation have built a very close bond. They spent a lot of time hanging out together even when they weren’t filming. Hopefully the closeness they formed will translate into great chemistry on screen.
After learning about Haley’s family history in the entertainment industry, you might just start to think that being an entertainer is simply in her blood. Her mother is Melissa ‘Rocky’ Brasselle who has been acting since the late 90s. Haley’s father, Robert, is a stuntman. Her maternal grandmother, Arlene DeMarco, was the lead singer of the group The Five DeMarco Sisters.
Haley Sanchez is currently single and not in an open relationship for now. Haley Sanchez is also not married.
Haley Sanchez’s net worth as of 2022 is estimated at around $650, 000 – $1 million.
