EXCLUSIVE: Kara Hayward racked up the accolades in her feature debut as angst-ridden lovebird Suzy in Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. Now the 14-year-old actress is boarding her next project. She’ll play Etta, a high school freshman dealing with her parents divorce, in the indie pic Quitters written and directed by Noah Pritzker (SXSW 2012 short Little Dad). Hayward joins Mira Sorvino, Greg Germann, Benjamin Konigsberg and Morgan Turner in the film which is currently shooting in San Francisco. Quitters is produced by Ben Howe (The Exploding Girl) and Luca Borghese (Rampart). It’s technically Hayward’s third feature to date; she just completed the indie Sisterhood Of The Night opposite Georgie Henley. She’s repped by ICM Partners.
