Chloe's love for performing began when she was 2 years old. Hers was always the first hand up at Disneyland when volunteers were needed on stage. A friend suggested she join a local theater group and that was the beginning of Chloe's acting and singing career. Her first performance was part of the ensemble cast in "The Sound of Music," and she went on to perform as Molly in the musical "Annie" with two local theater groups, and again professionally at Candlelight Dinner Playhouse in the Los Angeles area. She won an "Excellence in Acting" award for her performance as Molly. She enjoys singing karaoke, and she competed and became the youngest finalist in the Los Angeles Karaokefest Competition two years in a row at the Los Angeles County Fair.
Chloe filmed several television commercials for Kool-Aid, Target, Quaker Oats, and Philadelphia Cream Cheese. After signing with ESI Network Management Company, she secured a theatrical agent, Greene and Associates. She auditioned and signed with HBO as a co-star in the network's top rated series, "True Blood." She has filmed 3 seasons and enjoyed attending the Red Carpet Event for the show's season premieres in Hollywood. She had a great time meeting fans of the series, signing autographs and doing interviews.
In 2012, Chloe was cast as a series regular at Warner Bothers for the pilot of a new TV series, "Prodigy Bully." She enjoyed working with the producers, directors and cast, and the experience gave her the opportunity to learn more about the technical aspects of television production.
Chloe has also done several short films, and in building her body of work, she consistently receives compliments for her professionalism on the set.
Trying something different, Chloe played the part of an audience "heckler" in the Comedy Central series "CC:Stand-Up." She performed stand up comedy on stage for two shows before a live audience at The Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA. The show was taped for the TV and DVD Special "Kristen Schaal: Live At The Fillmore."
(January 2014) Currently, Chloe can be seen weekly on "Fox 5 San Diego Morning News" in her "Kids Korner" segment. She reports on Pop Culture from a kid's point of view.
Chloe is quick-witted, has a great sense of humor, and a keen eye for observation. She relates very well with adults, and while she is a natural leader, she easily relates to kids both younger and older. She is a compassionate and caring individual, often called wise beyond her years. Chloe is a straight A student and is in the 9th grade. She enjoys performing, being a Girl Scout, reading, playing video games, and swimming and ice skating.
1. What can you share about what's happening with your career right now? Please tell us a little about it.
Well, I was just nominated for a Young Artist Award and a Young Entertainer Award for my role in New Girl! I am so excited because it was such a fun role to play with such an amazing cast and crew! Also I have never been to an award show but have watched them on TV so I am so excited to attend.
Also it is pilot season so there are lots of auditions to prepare for. It's a busy time but one of the best times of the year for an actor!
2. Please tell us what do you feel is your biggest achievement?
I feel my biggest achievement was my role on True Blood. It was such a challenging role especially because I was so young. It was a lot of emotional scenes with a lot of crying on cue. It was really hard but it was a great learning experience that has helped me throughout my entire career!
Another big achievement is just overcoming all the rejection you face as an actor. You give so much in your auditions and then never hear anything back. Then you have to get up the next day and do it all over again.
3. Besides acting, what are you passionate about?
I really enjoy drawing and learning about animation. I would love to create my own animated show one day! I also love to ice skate.
4. How do you prepare for a role?
Once I get a script my mom and I start breaking down the character. We talk about what the character wants in the scene and how they will achieve it. Then we fill in all the blanks about the character using clues from the script or making up our own. That way I have a complete character.
5. Why and when did you decide to start you acting career?
My mom said I was a performer since I was a baby!
Whenever there was a chance to volunteer for something in front of people I was there! I started with theater at the age of 5 in a very small role in the Sound of Music. Then at age 6 I got my first major role as Molly in Annie. I won a theater award for that performance! I played Molly again in a professional theater where a friend's manager came to the show and said I should try acting in movies and tv!
6. If you could travel the world with anyone whom would you take?
Well I just went to Japan with my mom and grandparents! It was the most amazing time! I love it there and can't wait to go back.
I would like to travel the world with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey because I think they are both so funny and it would be cool to see the world through their eyes!
7. Please tell us what do you feel is the biggest challenge in your acting career?
I think its dealing with the rejection. Its different from participating in a sport where the fastest running wins or the team with the most goals wins. Acting is different, there are so many other factors. You may be the best actor but you don’t match the family or your other castmates. Or you are too tall or not tall enough. There is never a clear reason why you don’t book a role and that can be challenging. You also give so much of yourself in an audition and work so hard for just a few minutes in the audition room and then most of the time you never hear anything.
8. So many young actresses are committed to public service, setting a great example for their peers in terms of being involved with charities and the community. What causes are important to you, and what do you do to support them?
I try to always being involved in volunteering in three areas; the environment, people, and animals. I am a Ambassador for Heal the Bay, a organization that promotes ocean and beach protection. I also volunteer with Best Friends LA, a no kill shelter, helping cats and dogs. I volunteer monthly packing lunches for the homeless. I try to volunteer with senior citizens when I can, serving lunch and playing bingo. I recently participated in Random Acts of Kindness week, and challenged myself and others to do little things for others.
9. As a teen actress, how do you strike the balance between schoolwork and your career?
Well I am very lucky that I am homeschooled. I am able to work on school anywhere. This sounds like it would be super easy but it means working on school work in the car and at nights and weekends. It is actually more challenging than being at a traditional school everyday but it allows me to have the time to focus on my acting career.
10. If you were not a teen actress, what would you be up to now?
I just can't imagine what I would do if I didn’t pursue acting. I think I would focus on ice skating or art more.
11. If you have the chance to choose any other stars at your age to be your classmate, whom would you like to?
The kids from STRANGER THINGS!! They seem like they have so much fun together! It may be hard to focus on schoolwork but I bet it would be awesome!
12. Have you ever taken acting classes before? And do you think acting classes are necessary for aspiring teen actors or actresses?
Yes! I have taken acting classes ever since I started acting professionally. I am currently taking acting classes now at Gray Studios. Acting classes are so important for keeping you on your toes. Plus you can try out new things in class that you may not want to do in an audition. Acting class can be a way for you to push yourself and really fine tune your skills. I think a good acting class can be so helpful for actors starting out and can show you what to expect in auditions.

15. Now for my last question: what do you want to say to those who wish to pursue their careers in Hollywood?
Develop a thick skin and NEVER give up! Rejection can be tough but its usually not your fault if you didn’t book the job. Work hard and never give up because you never know what audition is just ahead! Also do it because you love it not because you want to be famous because that doesn’t happen right away!
