Hallee Leah Hirsh (born December 16, 1987) is an American actress known for her roles as Daley in the children’s series Flight 29 Down and as the second (and final) actress to portray Rachel Greene on ER. Starring alongside Kristen Stewart, Hirsh portrayed the role of Rachel Bruin in Speak.

Life and career

Hirsh was born in the daughter of Deborah, a naval officer, and Mike Hirsh, a Marine officer. She started acting as a toddler with her older brother, Greg. Coincidentally, Hirsh would find herself acting on the naval-based show JAG, as Matilda "Mattie" Grace Johnson, for 17 episodes.

She first portrayed Rachel Greene in the 2001-2002 season of ER in a storyline where a now teenage and rebellious Rachel leaves her mom in St. Louis to be with her father, Mark Greene, with whom she feuds but eventually they reconcile before Mark succumbs to brain cancer at the end of the 8th season. Hirsh later reprises her role in 2004 in the season 10 episode "Midnight", visiting her stepmother Dr. Elizabeth Corday, introducing her new boyfriend and seeking birth control pills. In the ER series finale, aired April 2, 2009, entitled "And in the End", Hirsh’s character returned as candidate interviewing for medical school, bringing the Greene family history full circle.

She is the recipient of two Youth in Film Young Artist Awards and was nominated for best acting awards for four other roles.
