Before the age of 10, Hayden had already been in over 50 commercials and starred in soap operas like "One Life to Live" and "Guiding Light," which she says gave her some of the craziest story lines of her career.
"'Nashville,' you know, the story lines have been pretty crazy... but I think 'Guiding Light' takes the cake," she said. "They threw me down a well,... I got leukemia not once, but twice, I was kidnapped... I shot my mom's boyfriend."
All of that probably prepared her for the ultra-dramatic role of Juliette Barnes. LOL.
Oh, and if you wanted to watch that well episode of "Guiding Light" Hayden was talking about, here you go!
