Madeline Zima

Madeline Zima is one of the most seasoned and diverse young actresses working today. After she and her sister Vanessa were discovered by Woody Allen for his movie Alice, Zima landed a role in The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, opposite Rebecca De Mornay and Annabella Sciorra.

Zima followed that dramatic thriller with a short film directed by Daryl Hannah called The Last Supper and later, Mr. Nanny. On television, she starred for six seasons on the hit comedy The Nanny, opposite Fran Drescher, where Zima honed her comic timing. She also starred in television films The Secret Path, Lethal Vows and The Sandy Bottom Orchestra, in which she learned to play virtuoso violin pieces. Zima won a worldwide search to play a teenaged Lucille Ball in the CBS mini-series Redhead, and later, co-starred with Hilary Duff in A Cinderella Story.

Zima recently completed shooting three independent films: Dimples, Looking For Sunday and Legacy.
