Mini Bio (1) Genevieve Hannelius is an actress, singer, and entrepreneur. She can be seen starring on The Disney Channel's hit original series, Dog with a Blog (2012). The show premiered in October 2012, and was watched by 4.5 million viewers. The show ran for three seasons on The Disney Channel and was nominated for an Emmy for all three seasons it aired.

Born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in Maine, Genevieve always had a love for entertaining, even at a very young age. She got her start in acting by participating in local theatre productions, landing the starring role as "Madeline", when she was eight-years-old in "Madeline's Rescue" and "Jenny" in "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing". Realizing their daughter's love for performing, Genevieve's mom and dad made the decision to come out to Los Angeles for pilot season in what may have been the worst time in history to try and break into the entertainment business; during the 2008 Writers Guild of America strike. Upon arrival, despite the current conditions of the industry, Genevieve started to book projects, immediately. Her first real job, was a commercial for the "Aquarium of the Pacific". Soon after the commercial launched, she booked a series regular role on the Bob Saget series, Surviving Suburbia (2009), for ABC, filming 13 episodes in 2009.

Although "Surviving Suburbia" only lasted one season, 2009 would prove to be a very busy year for Genevieve. After the series wrapped, she was discovered by a Disney Channel executive who caught Hannelius on the "Aquarium of the Pacific" commercial, and sought her out for several projects in production over at Disney. Throughout the rest of 2009 to 2012, she landed roles on Disney Channel hit series, including Sonny with a Chance (2009), Hannah Montana (2006), I'm in the Band (2009) and Good Luck Charlie (2010), in addition to her role in the Disney Channel original movie, Den Brother (2010) and Disney Channel's Leo Little's Big Show (2009). She also has lent her voice to several films over the last few years, working on Disney's Treasure Buddies (2012) and Spooky Buddies (2011) as the fun-loving golden retriever, "Rosebud", and The Search for Santa Paws (2010) and Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups (2012), also Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.

In 2015 Genevieve was cast in the critically acclaimed reboot of the landmark TV mini series "Roots."

Genevieve is also a tech entrepreneur. She started "Make Me Nails" in 2013, which sells customized nail wraps direct to consumers globally.

In her free time, Genevieve enjoys writing music, playing the piano, singing, poetry, fencing, horseback riding, ballet, juggling and acrobatics. She is also an active supporter of "A Window Between Worlds", a nonprofit organization dedicated to using art to help end domestic violence. She has been supporting the organization for six years.

Personal Quotes (5) One of my favorite things about playing "Avery Jennings" on Dog with a Blog (2012) is that I get to play a real teenager who deals with everyday issues.

I'm really interested in vegan nail polishes, because a lot of nail polishes have a lot of toxins in them.

With the Internet and social media being a huge part of today's culture, I think it's super important to promote staying smart online.

My mom is just so good with fashion! She always tells me what looks good, what doesn't look good, and she gives me great advice.

Illegal downloading, digital cheating, and cutting and pasting other people's stuff may be easy, but that doesn't make those activities right.
