Biography

Hilary Duff is clearly one of the most sought after young pop musicians and teen actress today. She has become a household name with her lilting voice and wholesome style, behavior, solid work ethic and positive attitude.

Hilary was born in Houston, Texas and is the second child to parents Robert Erhard and Susan Colleen Duff. She has one elder sister named Haylie with whom her mother encouraged to take up professional classes for acting.

At a young age, the Duff sisters took part in the ballet "The Nutcracker Suite" in San Antonio, Texas. It was after this performance that Duff sisters decided to take up acting seriously. The sisters relocated to California with their mother while their father stayed at Houston and took care of the family business. A lot of hard work and many auditions later Hilary and Haylie Duff were finally being cast in a number of television commercials.

Ladder to Fame
Hilary's acting career started on a sober note as her first appearance was in the made for television mini-series "True Women" in 1997. Shortly afterward, she played the part of an extra in William Carroll's romantic comedy feature film "Playing by Heart." Her first major role was granted to her in 1998, when she portrayed the character Wendy for the live action TV movie "Casper Meets Wendy." Hilary followed "Casper Meets Wendy" with the role of supporting actress in the television movie in The Soul Collector (1999) where she won the best actress award.

But it was Hilary's chance role on the NBC sitcom "Daddio" that would directly lead to her fame. Actor Michael Chiklis said at the time he believed beyond a doubt that Hilary would go on to become a star.

Soon afterwards, she became a child celebrity in the age group of 7-14. Next on line was A Cinderella Story and even though the reviews were not so good the film was a normal hit.

Sound of Music
Hilary's musical career is as colorful as her acting. This talented actress and musician shot to fame with the Lizzie McGuire movie soundtracks. Her first album was released in 2002 which included Christmas songs. The single "Tell Me A Story" did extremely well on the US Billboard and finally got her the gold certification.

Her second single "Metamorphosis" (2003) hit the #1 position on US and Canadian charts and sold 3.7 million copies. Another hit single to follow metamorphosis, "So Yesterday", was featured on the top 10 charts with the video being frequently played on MTV. She was fast becoming new music star on the horizon.

This was when "Most Wanted" sold 1.3 million copies making it another hit in March 2006. Hilary Duff is now well on her way to create her fourth studio album, which is slated for release in December of 2006.
