Kay Panabaker

Kay Panabaker is recognized by many from her role as angst-filled teen Nikki Westerly on the drama Summerland. Younger fans know her work on the Disney Channel, including the telefilm Read It and Weep and a recurring role on Phil of the Future.

Currently Kay plays Lindsey Willows, daughter of Marg Helgenberger's character on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, while recent guest appearances include Medium, Ghost Whisperer, Boston Legal, Two and a Half Men, and Weeds.

Last year, Kay was seen on the big screen playing best friend George to girl sleuth Nancy Drew in the feature film adaptation of the classic book series, and was later seen on the small screen in Lifetime's Custody alongside Rob Morrow and James Denton. She plays the title character in Moondance Alexander, an award-winning family film that also stars Lori Loughlin and Don Johnson.

She was also recognized in 2007 for her performance in the Dylan and Cole Sprouse film A Modern Twain Story: The Prince and the Pauper.

Extraordinarily focused, Kay has pursued a rigorous academic schedule in addition to her work, graduating as valedictorian of her high school at the age of 13, and then completing her undergraduate work in history at UCLA in March 2007 at the age of 17.
