Addy Miller started acting right after her 8th birthday in January 2008. Addy's mom was encouraged to take her to an audition for a Young Dakota Fanning in "The Secret Life of Bees." To everyone's surprise, Addy landed the part! At age 10, Addy now has eleven films under her belt, as well as commercials, print work, and a TV show.
Addy recently completed work on AMC's new original series "The Walking Dead" in the pivotal opening scene that sets the tone for the entire TV series. Addy was cast as "Little Girl Zombie", in which fans of the show have raved as "Best Kill," "Shock of the Week" and "Zombie of the Week" after the pilot episode aired on Halloween night, 2010. The highlights for Addy were being personally directed by Frank Darabont, working closely with Greg Nicotero, meeting Gale Anne Hurd, Andrew Lincoln and Sarah Wayne Callies, as well as performing her own stunts in the scene.
