Aly Michalka stars in "iZombie" on The CW as Peyton Charles.

Actress, musician, and songwriter Aly Michalka is a star on the rise. She and her sister AJ Michalka form the musical duo Aly & AJ, who are now known as 78violet. Aly is the more introspective, impulsive and artistic daydreamer of the two. The platinum-selling duo have released four studio albums, and they are in the midst of working on another one.

Aly started acting when she was five years old, mostly in church play productions. She was raised as a Christian and continues to practice the faith. She began her professional acting career with a starring role on Disney Channel's "Phil of the Future" about a family from the future trying to live in the modern world. She next starred in two Disney Channel films, "Now You See It" and "Cow Belles," as well as the Disney pilot "Haversham Hall." She also starred in the MTV original movie "Super Sweet Sixteen: The Movie." More recently she was seen starring in Summit Entertainment's "Bandslam" opposite Vanessa Hudgens and Gaelen Connell. Aly plays Charlotte, the popular girl at school who befriends the high school's outcast after bonding over their shared love for music. Together with a few more of the school's misfits they assemble a rock band to compete in their school's battle of the bands competition. Aly more recently starred in the Screen Gems thriller "The Roommate," alongside Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly.

On television, Aly had a recurring role in CBS's "Two and a Half Men" and starred in The CW's "Hellcats" as Marti Perkins, a college student that is forced to join the competitive Hellcats cheerleading squad in order to save her scholarship and stay in school. Guest appearances include "Motive," "Anger Management," "Breaking In" and "CSI: NY."

Aly is also an incredibly talented musician. In addition to singing and songwriting, she started playing piano when she was five years old and the guitar at thirteen. She also plays percussion. As part of the rock/pop duo "Aly &AJ," Aly and her younger sister AJ became platinum-selling recording artists at a very young age. In 2006, Aly & AJ were nominated for an American Music Award. They have also written or co-written all of the songs on their two hit records, and their holiday release "Acoustic Hearts of Winter" was one of the best-selling Christmas albums of 2006. Their hit single, "Potential Breakup Song," was noted in Time Magazine as one of the Top 10 Songs of the Year for 2007 and has been RIAA certified with sales of more than 1,000,000 downloads.

In 2006 and 2007, Aly & AJ had two consecutive sold-out tours, headlining amphitheaters and arenas across the United States, as well as international success in Japan and the UK. The duo has also contributed to the soundtracks for the films "The Game Plan," "Herbie Fully Loaded," "Ice Princess," and "Bandslam," in which she also stars. Michalka also recently starred in the movie "Easy A" (2010), opposite Emma Stone, as Rhiannon.

In addition to her music and acting, Aly has an abundance of other activities keeping her busy. Penguin Books has published a four-book series "Aly & AJ's Rock 'n Roll Mysteries," for which she is the credited illustrator. She and her sister have also partnered with Performance Designed Products (PDP) to launch a line of video game accessories targeted at female gamers. The accessories debuted with a signature line of guitar controllers compatible with Wii, Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Aly is also involved with philanthropic activities.
