Early lifeEdit

Hall was born in Denver, Colorado. Her family moved into the mountains when she was two years-old, but she remained in Colorado until age eighteen.[1] After high school, she lived in Hawaii and Los Angeles before moving to Vancouver, British Columbia, where she attended the Vancouver Film School.[1]


When she was seven years-old, Hall attended Nina Axelrod's open casting call for Robert Zemeckis's Forrest Gump. A few callbacks later, Hall was eventually cast as young Jenny Curran.[1] This was followed by a role as an orphaned child in the 1996 television film Homecoming, co-starring Anne Bancroft.

Hall screen tested for the role of Lux Lisbon in Sofia Coppola's film adaptation of The Virgin Suicides, but was considered too young for the part so she was cast as Cecilia Lisbon instead.[1] She appeared in several independent films following this, before being cast in Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween (2007) as Judith Myers. In 2009, she appeared in the independent comedy American Cowslip (2009), opposite Val Kilmer, Diane Ladd, and Cloris Leachman.

In 2012, Hall began working as a theater director in Venice, California, directing underground plays.[2] She has also appeared on television series, including guest roles on Criminal Minds and Masters of Sex.
