Biography

Hanna R. Hall won the hearts of moviegoers around the world at ten years old, with her gentle portrayal of Jenny -- the febrile young abuse victim who grows up into the title character's friend and lover (Robin Wright Penn) -- in Robert Zemeckis' modern classic Forrest Gump. After a couple of less-than-memorable small-screen outings (Her Desperate Choice, Homecoming), Hall returned to cinema under the aegis of Sofia Coppola for that helmer's poignant big-screen directorial debut, The Virgin Suicides (1999). The actress achieved her next major coup in 2007, when she played Judith Myers, the ill-fated teenage sister of psychopath Michael Myers, in Rob Zombie's horror remake Halloween. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
