At the tender age of three, Garey was already on stage singing and performing in ballet recitals. She gravitated to pageants with her great attitude and beauty, and won many titles though the years. Upon moving to Los Angeles in 2001, she soon booked her first independent feature film, Pinky the Clown Show
. On the small screen, she has been seen in Days Of Our Lives
, American Dreams
, The Shield
, and That's So Raven
She pursued theatrical training even as she continued acting in independent films. It was on a movie set that she first learned of a film a colleague's friend was casting about a girl in a spelling bee. AKEELAH AND THE BEE marks Garey's major motion-picture debut.
