Kara Hayward stars in Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," opposite Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Francis McDormand, as Suzy.

Kara Hayward was born and raised in Massachusetts. She acted in her first play during summer camp, and it was there that she discovered a passion for acting.

She was subsequently discovered at an open call, landing her first movie audition, for "Moonrise Kingdom." She made the movie — her feature debut — at the age of twelve. She is now thirteen years old.

Hayward has been a member of Mensa since the age of nine. In addition to acting, she enjoys reading, dancing, and writing, including poetry. Her artwork and poems have been published locally as well as in books such as "Inspired" and "A Celebration of Poetry."
