IMTA alum Haley Bennett makes her feature film debut in the Warner Bros. Valentine's Day event movie Music and Lyrics. Haley plays the reigning diva Cora Corman who invites Hugh Grant's character, a musician in need of a comeback, to write and record a duet with her. Drew Barrymore stars as the friend who helps him try to come up with a hit in a matter of days!
Haley competed at the 2001 IMTA Convention where she met her agents Mara Santino and Ryan Daly of Kazarian/Spencer & Associates. Here's what Haley had to say about her IMTA experience:
“I definitely would have not been at this point and had this much background and confidence. If it were not for my IMTA experience years ago. The training and interest was essential for the beginning stages of the construction for the backbone of my career and future.” –Haley Bennett
