Taylor Marie Atelian Biography
Birthdate: March 27, 1995
Birthplace: Santa Barbara, California
Taylor Marie Atelian is a total triple threat—she’s an actress, singer and dancer! You probably know her best from her role on the successful ABC television series, The World According to Jim. She plays Jim’s precocious daughter, Ruby—a role she won when she was only 5 years old!The long-running series has been a great launching pad for the talented actress and she’s been nominated for the Best Performance in a TV Series (Comedy or Drama) four times at the Young Artist Awards.
Taylor’s success didn’t come easy, it came through a lot of hard work. Taylor shoots According to Jim in Los Angeles, but her dad and brothers live in Santa Barbara—so Taylor’s mom stays with her during the week, then the two ladies fly back home on weekends. You might think she’d get homesick, but the cast and crew of the show have become like a second family for her, so although she does miss her father and brothers, she has a great support system on set.
With her her love for performing and her varied dance background (Taylor has trained in tap, ballet and jazz at the Rudenko School of Dance), forming a musical group just makes sense. Pink-E-Swear is an all-girl group that always wears pink! They’ve already recorded their album and a tv show is in the works, so watch for the four girls on stage in 2009!
