Courtney Hope (Sally) began modeling and appearing in commercials when she was four years old, and the actress says that was all her own doing! “It wasn’t my parents who were pushing it,” she notes. “I was a showman from literally the second I popped out [ of the womb].” Though Hope took a meeting with an agent as a tot, her mother eventually put the brakes on her road to stardom. “She said, ‘We should wait. When you’re 12, we can get you an agent.’” Of course, the morn- ing of her twelfth birthday, Hope reminded her mother of that promise. “I said, ‘Okay! You told me I could get an agent, so let’s do it!’” By age 15, Hope had convinced her parents to let her move from Texas to Los Angeles. “We traveled back and forth at first, but eventually we all relocated, and they still live in L.A. with my little brother.” Hope feels fortunate to have parents who took her passion in stride, and she’s happy to be able to prove to them that it’s paid off!
Hope caught the acting bug very early!
