Skyler Day is an American actress and singer best known for her recurring television roles as Maggie Ritter in Gigantic (2010-2011) and as Amy Ellis in Parenthood, since 2011.
Day was born in Atlanta, Georgia. Her start in the entertainment industry began after a chance meeting with a talent agent in the DMV at the age of six. She began her career with print work, commercials, voice over and eventually it lead to her first film opportunity.
Skyler was 10 years old when she made a deal with her parents that if she booked the lead in a film by her 11th birthday they would move out to California. That way she could pursue her acting career more seriously.
She missed her goal by only two weeks but she ended up booking the lead in The Adventures of Ociee Nash. Her dream of moving to the West Coast came true when she and her family relocated to California in 2004.
Music has also been a major part of Skyler's life. At 10 years old, she wrote and recorded her first song, Grandaddy's Love. Since then she has taken up guitar and has written over 50 songs. She continues to write passionately today and is seldom seen without her guitar and songwriting notebook.
She performs frequently as a feature artist and also with her twin brother, Dalton, who is also a guitarist. They often write together and can't be in the same room without playing a tune.
Skyler has guest starred on such shows as CSI: Miami, Law & Order: LA, Disney Channel's Sonny with a Chance and Good Luck Charlie and was also a recurring character on TeenNick's Gigantic and on Army Wives.
Skyler is happiest when she is on set or on stage and dreams of spending the rest of her life telling stories through her music and acting.
