Madeleine (Maddy) Murden is an nineteen-year-old filmmaker based in Los Angeles, California. She has worked as a professional actress since the age of twelve, and can be seen in a number of films, including Ben Lewin's "Please Stand By" (2017) and Benjamin Steinberg's award-winning short film "Bear With Me" (2017). At a very young age, Maddy took an interest in creating films for the sheer enjoyment of it, constantly writing and shooting original works, many of which can be found on her YouTube channel. Maddy recently directed, shot, and edited a music video for HOAX’s hit single, “Moon Moon Baby” and Daniel DiVenere’s “Hurts Me Too”, both of which can be viewed on YouTube. She is a proud recipient of a 2018 National YoungArts Foundation award in Cinematic Arts for her short film, "Everything I Am". The film is now cycling through festivals, including the Poppy Jasper International Film Festival and the Clean Shorts Film Festival. Maddy also works as an Assistant Director on Hadley Dion and Marisol Diaz’s web series “I Would Have Kissed You”, a romantic comedy focused on modern female empowerment, with its first season scheduled to premiere later this year. Currently, Maddy has an original film titled “Pink Elephant” in development, which she plans to star in and direct alongside Madison De La Garza. Maddy loves collaborating on creative projects with her two siblings, Will and Emily Murden, both of whom can be seen in a number of Maddy's short films. Maddy is happiest when hanging out with Will, Emily, and her beloved cat, Oliver.
