Born in New York, Elizabeth Hendrickson developed a passion for acting at a young age. She grew up a devout fan of the TV series STAR SEARCH. By the time she was in the eighth grade, she auditioned and became a finalist for THE MICKEY MOUSE CLUB.
After studying musical theater at Syracuse University and majoring in Communications at Fordham University, Hendrickson’s career was off and running. She landed guest-starring roles on LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT, MEDIUM, COLD CASE and CSI: MIAMI. Then, Hendrickson got her big break, when she won the role of Frankie Stone on ALL MY CHILDREN in 2001. Although the character was killed off after two short months, Hendrickson promptly resurfaced as Frankie’s identical twin, Maggie, who, like Frankie, became Bianca’s love interest. The couple’s touching same-sex love story quickly became a viewer favorite, inspiring a major write-in campaign called BAM. Hendrickson has also appeared in national commercials for Papa John’s and Marshalls.
Upon exiting ALL MY CHILDREN, Hendrickson relocated to California and guest-starred in several primetime shows. She joined the cast of YOUNG AND RESTLESS as fashion vixen Chloe Mitchell in 2008. Although the character was only slated to be on for 10 episodes, Hendrickson was soon offered a contract.
The single actress lives in a Los Angeles with her dog. She enjoys hiking, going to the beach, and shopping, admitting she has a serious passion for fashion.
