My name is Claire Elizabeth Shea, and I have an enormous passion for acting. I am fourteen-years-old, and I come from a family of five (counting me). I also have a German Shorthaired pointer named Mocha. I attend a private school, and I have gotten straight A's my entire school career. I have a photographic memory, and I am a fast-learner. I was elected treasurer of my class last year, and I was also selected for a writing competition this year. I have an older sister and a younger brother. I am good at almost all sports, and I am very athletic. I am kind of like a girly tom-boy. I have lived in Memphis all my life with my mom, dad, and siblings. I have loved acting all my life, and ever since a young age, I have been determined to be a famous actress one day. I have done many things on stage, but I feel that I can use my talents more effectively in film and television. I am very good at getting into character, and I never quit anything. I can do several accents including British, Valley Girl, and Southern (Country). My Role Models include, Jennifer Aniston, Abigail Breslin, and Sandra Bullock. My favorite television shows are Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Army Wives, House, In Plain Sight, Law and Order (SVU), and White Collar. I believe that one day I can take the acting world by storm because I am a very dedicated and determined person. All I need is your help, and I promise I will not disappoint you.

I run cross-country and track for my school, and I like cooking. I also like hanging out with my friends and swimming in my pool. My grades are very important to me, so during the school year I spend a lot of my time doing school work. I also like to lay on the couch sometimes and just watch my favorite television shows. I also like playing sims3 in my free time. I also like listening to music. My favorite songs right now are The House that Built Me by Miranda Lambert, California Gurls by Katy Perry, Take it Off by Ke$ha, and a lot more. I sometimes enjoy spending quiet time alone because it helps me feel peaceful. I also like to blast music and stick my feet out the window on the interstate in my sister's car. :)
I am determined to be a very successful movie and television actress. Another thing I would absolutely love to do is be on one of my favorite television shows, either as an extra, a guest star, or a recurring role. I will do everything in my power to achieve my goals.
