Courtney Patterson on ABC's "Surviving Suburbia"
G Hannelius was born in Boston, MA but moved with her parents to southern Maine when she was still very young. At the age of seven she landed the title role in "Madeline's Rescue" at The Children's Theatre of Maine. When the family relocated to Los Angeles in 2008, Hannelius promptly booked commercials for Orville Redenbacher's Popcorn, Little Caesar's Pizza, Dairy Queen and a regional spot as the spokeskid for The Aquarium of the Pacific, which caught the attention of a more than a few casting directors. A notice seeking "the representative for the little girl in the Aquarium commercial" led to an opportunity to read for the lead role in ABC's new sitcom, "Surviving Suburbia," with co-stars Bob Saget and Cynthia Stevenson.
Hannelius recently worked a guest lead role in an episode of the Disney Channel comedy, "Sonny with a Chance," and fulfilled her cherished dream to work with Miley Cyrus when she booked a role as a zealous fan on the hit Disney Channel series "Hannah Montana." She is also part of the promotional campaign for "Leo Little's Big Show," co-hosting spots on the Disney Channel.
