It took 16-year-old Claudia Lee (“Zeke and Luther” and “Hart of Dixie”) just two years to go from Hoosier teen to Hollywood starlet and rising country music singer. Although the journey has not always been easy, it’s one she hopes will continue for a very long time.

Originally from West Lafayette, Indiana, Claudia attended a performing arts camp in Vermont, where she met a friend who introduced her to talent agent Harry Abrams. He recommended that Claudia move to Los Angeles, where she could audition for film and TV projects.

With mother accompanying her, and father commuting between Indiana and California, Claudia moved to Hollywood to “test the waters.” Shortly after arriving, she landed a role in a national Comcast commercial with Zachary Levi from the TV series “Chuck” and in the short dramatic film “Circus Girl.” Next came Disney’s “Zeke and Luther,” in which Claudia plays Bridget, the romantic-interest of Luther (Adam Hicks).

“Adam is truly a nice person, and a lot of fun,” Claudia says. “Zeke and Luther was my first television job, so I had a lot to learn about the lingo and camera angles.”
