Hayley Sullivan was born and raised in Sydney. After working on ABC's Fireflies at a young age she got the acting bug and continued to act throughout school. She then moved into the world of post-production, working as a Line Producer at Sydney Visual Effects Production house Animal Logic for three years. But she never truly left behind her passion for theatre. After working on numerous amateur theatre projects she decided to formalise her training at Actors Centre Australia. Her highlight whilst studying has been working on Stories from the Westside verbatim theatre project out in Parramatta, directed by Dean Carey.
