Mimi Kirkland stars in "Safe Haven," opposite Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough, as Lexie.

Mimi Kirkland is becoming one of the most watched young actresses of 2013. Just eight years old, she recently appeared in an acclaimed production of "A Christmas Carol," starring Ira David Wood III, father of actress Evan Rachel Wood. Previously, Kirkland was featured in a national commercial and print campaign for Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. She has appeared in several other regional and national commercials.

Born in Raleigh, North Carolina, Kirkland always had a love for acting and entertaining audiences. Soon after finishing preschool, she began booking numerous commercials, including spots for Food Lion and the North Carolina State Fair.

During the filming of the Biltmore commercial, the director suggested Kirkland had the demeanor and creativity to be in movies. Shortly thereafter, Kirkland auditioned for her first film role and after two callbacks, landed the career-changing role of Lexi.

When not working, Kirkland loves to spend time with her family and enjoys participating in outdoor activities such as bike riding, swimming and playing tag with her sisters Coley and Kate. She also has several pets, including a dog named Sami and three fish named Bubbles, Shelly and Swirly.

Kirkland currently divides her time between Raleigh and Los Angeles.
