Hayley Erin is best known to soap fans for playing the late great Kiki Jerome on General Hospital, as well as playing spoiled Abby Newman on The Young and the Restless.
Erin has also guest-starred on shows such as NCIS, Melissa & Joey, Austin & Ally, Modern Family, and Malcolm in the Middle. From where she was born to where you can find her now, here are five fast facts about the former General Hospital star!
In The Beginning
Hayley Erin was born on July 13 in Los Angeles, California. Her last name is actually Feil, but she decided to drop it when she started acting. Because of her close proximity to Hollywood, Erin began working when she was very young. In fact, she was cast in a McDonald’s commercial at the age of 3.
Erin’s first non-commercial acting job was on the sketch comedy show MADtv. She was on it for eight episodes and even played actress Dakota Fanning in a fake movie trailer for It’s A Small World.
First Guest-Starring Role
After appearing on MADtv, Erin landed her first guest-starring role on the show Malcolm in the Middle in 2004. She then went on to appear in shows such as The King of Queens, Big Love, Modern Family, and Two and a Half Men.
Erin was cast as Kiki Jerome on General Hospital in 2015 after Kristen Alderson vacated the role. She went on to win a Daytime Emmy Award just a few years later for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series after also having been nominated in the same category the year before.
In Her Prime
Erin currently stars on the Freeform show, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, which is a spinoff of Freeform’s very popular show, Pretty Little Liars. Erin plays the character of Taylor Hotchkiss. The first season wrapped earlier this year. General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
