India Eisley Bio
India Eisley's teen years have been pretty normal — full of ballet classes, biting sarcasm, oh, and movie star parents. No wonder she's got mad acting skills: it's in her genes! India's dad is musician/actor David Glen Eisley (90210, SpongeBob SquarePants) and her mom is none other than Olivia Hussey, who played Juliet in Zeffirelli's classic Romeo and Juliet. Over the years, India toured through Europe with her dad, starred in a few indie flicks, and appeared in 2005's Headspace alongside her momma. She then snatched up the role of Ashley Juergens on Secret Life, where she plays the edgy and sarcastic younger sister of Amy. Maybe it’s all the Shakespeare coursing through her veins, but this quirky teen definitely has a way with words.
Secret Life may be India's breakout role, but she has her sights set on bigger and better things in the future. She hopes to work with film industry titans Martin Scorsese and Ron Howard, and star alongside her favorite actresses, Maggie Gyllenhall and Meryl Streep. Though when it comes down to it, India's favorite actress is — who else? — her mom!
