as “Katie Johnson”
Maggie Elizabeth Jones, born October 10th, 2003 is a very talented young American actress who is on her way to absolute superstardom!
Growing up in Atlanta, Georgia, Maggie was blessed with an energy and talent that quickly led to her being discovered by a local agency where she very immediately became a successful print and commercial actress. This led to her getting the opportunity to audition for film and television where she once again very quickly made her mark. She first booked a role in the Fox pilot Most Likely to Succeed, which unfortunately never made it to air but very soon after that she got another break when she was cast alongside her sister in Footloose.
The Footloose booking was the break she needed to get considered for bigger leading roles. When Cameron Crowe needed a daughter to play opposite Matt Damon in We Bought a Zoo, Maggie’s taped audition was so impressive it led to a face-to-face meeting. Shortly after she was cast in the role of “Rosie”. Her performance in We Bought a Zoo earned her multiple outstanding critical reviews from high level publications such as CNN, The Washington Post, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal and many, many more.
She also has recently starred in Identity Thief for Universal, once again opposite her sister, along with Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman and on the well-received but short-lived Fox series Ben and Kate in which she stars as the daughter opposite Nat Faxon and Dakota Johnson.
Maggie currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia with her parents and two sisters, Mary Charles and Lillian.
