Next Gen Talent 2019: Hollywood’s Rising Young Stars Revealed

Haley Lu Richardson, 24

The Arizona native moved out to Los Angeles at age 16 to dance after convincing her parents with a poster board presentation. It didn’t take long for her to make the leap to acting full time, quickly graduating from made-for-TV movies to more high-brow fare like The Edge of Seventeen, Split and Support the Girls. She was nominated for a Gotham Independent Film Award in 2017 for her breakout performance in Columbus. Next, she’ll reteam with director Kogonada for his new film After Yang starring Colin Farrell and front Unpregnant with Ferreira.

Haley Lu covers Marie Claire Malaysia (April Issue)

Our April 2019 issue cover girl (@haleyluhoo) has a message to young women who are passionate about pursuing the same career path as herself: “I am so bad at advice because I feel like I don’t have it all figured out! The one thing I know for sure is always listening to the voice inside you and use it. Say what you feel and don’t do anything just to please someone else. Be honest, and the right things and people will come into your life naturally.”

AOL Build – Interview

Directed by Justin Baldoni, the film, Five Feet Apart,” centers on seventeen-year-old Stella who spends most of her time in the hospital as a cystic fibrosis patient. Her life is full of routines, boundaries and self-control — all of which get put to the test when she meets Will (Cole Sprouse), an impossibly charming teen who has the same illness. There’s an instant flirtation, though restrictions dictate that they must maintain a safe distance between them. As their connection intensifies, so does the temptation to throw the rules out the window and embrace that attraction.

Haley Lu Richardson has just one request for our interview: no spoilers from last night’s episode of The Bachelor.”Don’t tell me about yesterday!” she says as the topic of Tuesday night’s finale comes up. “We did The View this morning and before we went on, I was backstage and I heard them say, ‘He had to say goodbye to two girls.’ But I still want to watch what happens.” (For the record, Richardson was pulling for Hannah G: “She was pretty and she was sweet and I thought they would go really well together.”)

The actress had missed Monday night’s episode for good reason—she had just arrived in New York City for a full day of press to promote her new film Five Feet Apart. It was only 2 p.m. in the afternoon, Richardson had already appeared on both The View and Good Morning America, and following our interview and photo shoot, was off to AOL. That means a lot of chatting, and, thus, no reality TV breaks. Not that Richardson minds. “I like talking,” she said. “Who am I kidding? I’m an only child.”

Richardson, who turned 24 just last week, was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. After appearing in regional dance and theater productions, she relocated to Los Angeles and has since appeared in films such as Split, The Edge of Seventeen, and as the lead in the 2017 film Columbus, for which she was nominated for Best Actress at the Gotham Independent Film Awards. It’s been a whirlwind eight years in Hollywood, a time period she confirms after counting it out on her fingers. “That’s a long time,” she said. “I don’t think I want to make it to 10 years.”

And where would she go?

“Sedona.” Richardson has a deep affinity for the Arizona city, which we won’t get into here, but trust that it is real. “Or Mars,” she continued. “If there was a spaceship to Mars, my boyfriend and I always say we’d move go there together. I’m scared. But I would go anywhere he would go.”

Richardson has been dating fellow actor Brett Dier for “over five years,” she said, after more quick mental math. “We met on this ABC Family show called Ravenswood, which was a spinoff of Pretty Little Liars that failed,” she said. “But it’s okay because we got to be in New Orleans for a few months, and we met.” It’s also through Dier, inadvertently, that Richardson landed her latest role in Five Feet Apart, which opens in theaters tomorrow.
