“Hayden is a star in the making! She was fully off book with her audition and made fantastic choices. She takes direction well and has a "Can Do" attitude. On set, she is focused and prepared to work. Her mother, Laila, is quick to respond to emails and calls which made organizing our project much easier. I look forward to being on set with the both of them again in the very near future!”
— Amber Wegner, Producer, "THE LEGEND OF CATCLAWS MOUNTAIN"

Excellent with improv, took direction very well and didn't mess up once. With her talent, she's definitely next in line to be one of Hollywood's greats, so stay tune! She's next! It was a pleasure and she'll always and forever have a home with Ryda 4 Life Filmz!"

"Hayden is a wonderful young actress. She is wise and talented beyond her years, a natural born leader, and a terrific collaborator. It's rare for a young actress to be so natural and fearless in their acting, and to work so well with others--but that is who Hayden is. Consistently great from the initial audition to "that's a wrap."
— Robert Axelrod, Executive Producer “BLANK PAGES”

"We found a true gem when we cast Hayden as our lead in 'The Weight Of Perfection' - she is an absolute star - so brave with so much depth and talent, I often found myself forgetting that she was only 11 years old. Words cannot express my gratitude for having her star in this film - she is so hardworking and just a delight to be around. I want her in ALL my films!"
