Rachel Hope Eggleston is often described as an "old soul". From an early age it was apparent that she loved to perform and entertain people: At the age of three she was dancing and participating in musical theatre, and it quickly became clear that she had an attention span and work ethic far beyond her years.

Rachel began her professional career in the fall of 2010. Off to a great start, she booked her second audition for a national commercial and has been working consistently ever since. She has appeared in many national commercials for companies such as Walmart and Audi and had roles in a number of big television shows, including House, The Mentalist, Chuck and Justified.

The spring of 2012 brought exciting new opportunities: Rachel landed her first role as a series regular in the ABC show How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life) playing Natalie the young daughter of Sarah Chalke's character Polly. Rachel also secured a starring role in the upcoming feature film Summer Snow. Despite Rachel's talent and love for acting, she is really just a regular kid with a sweet spirit who loves to dance, swim, hula-hoop and relax at home with her parents and two older brothers.

Praise


01. "America get ready to fall in love with Rachel Eggleston." - American Family Studios

02. "Rachel Eggleston’s heartwarming portrayal of Hallie…shines and leaves you smiling." - American Family Studios

03. "...and to Rachel Eggleston, who plays my daughter. She's playing a five-year-old! Brad and I both said we've never worked with a child who's made you break on camera. She's made me crack up on camera before and she's playing a five-year-old! It's insane. She's really good. It's crazy." - Sarah Chalke

04. "Even Rachel Eggleston! And the only reason I say "even" is because she's a kid. And to have her be able to crack us up on camera is unbelievable." - Sarah Chalke

05. "Even with all the comedians in the cast, Chalke and Garrett agree the one actor who can consistently cause her colleagues to crack up during filming is Rachel Eggleston, who plays Polly's 5-year-old daughter, Natalie. (The rest of the cast can also rely on Eggleston to supply them with a forgotten line or missed cue, according to Garrett.) "I've never worked with a kid who's that talented as an actor," Chalke says. "Brad and I both said, we've never worked with a kid who's made us break on camera, like crack up laughing in the middle of a scene. She can improv. If you're doing a scene with her and you throw something out, she throws it back." - Sarah Chalke

06. "She's really talented." Adds Garrett: "She's unbelievable. You work with a lot of kids in this industry, and a lot of them want to be on TV. But Rachel really wants to act, and she's so gifted. She's a natural. She's great." - Brad Garrett

07. "Fortunately Chalke has another child to keep her company: Rachel Eggleston, who is apparently already an improv veteran at age five. “She’s amazing,” Chalke says. “I’ve never worked with a kid like her. None of us have. Brad and I said, ‘You’re working with a person who can play a five-year-old kid who can make you break on camera.’ She can crack you up; she can improv. She will throw a line in at the last second – ‘try this, try that’ - and she nails it every time.” - Sarah Chalke
