Kyleigh Bakker is known for her dramatic role in Stronger By This for which she was nominated “Best Actress Under 18” at The Golden State Film Festival. This short film directed by Ann Cabano was also nominated Finalist and awarded Best Public Service Announcement.





"I've had the pleasure of directing Kyleigh Bakker in two commercial video projects this year. In both productions I needed her to play "older" than her actual age...Kyleigh was up to the challenge and had enough range to give the video editor many excellent takes from which to choose. Kyleigh has quickly become my go-to choice at Ackerley Advertising for young adult/teenage parts."

“I love working with Kyleigh. She’s a very smart actor, is super grounded and has a strong understanding of nuance and the value of stillness”


-Steve Anderson , Acting Teacher/ Director - Tucson, AZ

"Kyleigh is motivated and takes her craft very seriously. When she steps onto the set, it's clear she's done her prep work to deliver the performance we need. I strongly recommend casting her."

“Kyleigh was very professional. I would work with her at any time. She was a joy. Reminds me of a young Anne Hathaway. “

-Praise K. Phoenix Az

“Working with KYLEIGH was a wonderful experience. She was willing to go the distance with the vision for the film. Take after take, she never complained. We worked in extreme heat outside and did a shower scene where she stood in wet clothing until we captured what we were after. She also has an emotional depth that was extremely moving. I believe she will go far in her career.”
