Rylea Nevaeh Whittet was born in Victoria BC, Canada and is 5 years old. Rylea is a 2022 Nominee for her role in the Netflix Series MAID, where she plays "Maddy" the daughter of single mother Alex played by Margaret Qualley.
As a 4 year old, Rylea landed the role and quickly became a favorite on set with all the actors, producers and crew. Rylea was eager to show up on set each day for "work" which she loved the experience over the 8 months of filming. She especially liked working with John Wells who impressed her with his duck voice and charm.
Rylea continues to enjoy building her skillset in the acting world while enjoying just being a kid! Rylea also loves to sing, she loves music from across all genres and can learn and sing almost any song after just hearing a few times!
Rylea is eager to continue working and cannot wait for her next experience on set. She is hoping one day they will make a remake of ET, where she strives to play the role of Gertie!
