Haley Bennett was born Haley Loraine Keeling in Fort Myers, Florida, to Leilani (Dorsey) Bennett and Ronald Keeling. She was raised in a small town in Ohio, and moved to Los Angeles following high school in 2006. Soon after, Haley was introduced to a small agency, KSA, who sent her on a casting for the film, Music and Lyrics (2007). Haley made her film debut, as pop-diva “Cora Corman”, opposite of Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant. Since then, she continued to pursue film, never music, but has taken on other musical roles in film, such as Shekhar Kapur’s Passage (2009) and Outlaw Country (2012).
