Devyn Valerie Rush was born on January 25, 1990 in Philadelphia, PA. By the age of six months, Devyn was saying “Hi!” to people in the supermarket, and singing followed shortly after. It didn’t take long before the “Powers to be” noticed her talent and began booking her for commercials and print ads. She made her first commercial at the age of six months. Since then, Devyn’s résumé has filled up with a long list of accomplishments, which includes extensive theater credits. She has been making good use of her young life.
Devyn began to gain a reputation among agents and other “big wheels” in the industry, as being a very charismatic and naturally-talented child. She was constantly asked back and hired by companies several times because she had a knack for taking direction. At the age of four, Devyn made her theatrical debut as Gretl in the “SOUND OF MUSIC.” She followed that performance with roles in “OLIVER!”, “RUTHLESS!,” “I REMEMBER MAMA,” and “ANNIE,” in which she played the title role twice. Devyn also appeared in commercials and print ads constantly, booking almost every role she auditioned for in the Philadelphia area.
Soon, Devyn’s manager urged her parents to begin taking her into New York City for auditions. Unsure if Devyn would be able to compete and keep up with the fast-paced competition in the city, they tried it out. Devyn’s talent shined more brightly than ever, and she gained the same kind of success she had previously. Devyn soon began booking national television spots and voice-overs for Nickelodeon and Scholastic, and became very popular with several agents and directors.
