Hayley Law’s Age & Ethnicity
Hayley Law was born on the 18th of November 1992 in Canada. Her ethnicity is Afro-Canadian while her nationality is Canadian. The actress grew up in the sleepy farming town of Surrey where she completed her elementary and high school education. Growing up, Law did not really aspire to become an actress. She wanted to become a singer but realized early on that she won’t be able to achieve her ambitions in her small town. The fearless young lady thus decided to take the bulls by the horn and moved to the bustling city of Vancouver, aged 18, in order to pursue her dreams.
Law did not have it easy on landing in Vancouver and had to work various odd jobs including as a waiter. While waiting tables, she also hired an agent in order to make headway. Her hard work paid off when she started doing commercials for companies such as MacDonald’s. Shortly after, Law landed the role of the fearless singer/songwriter, Valerie Brown on the Netflix show, Riverdale. When she landed the gig, she thought that it would only be a guest role but was pleasantly surprised when she learned that it was a regular role.
Since that breakthrough, Hayley Law has appeared in other notable projects such as The Arrangement and The New Romantic. The New Romantic is Law’s very first movie. The 2018 movie focuses on a journalism student trying to make progress in her career. Law plays the supporting role of Nikki, the cynical but loving best friend of the lead character Blake.
Looking back to when she was younger, Hayley Law fell in love with singing at an early age at which time she learned how to play the piano. While in the 9th grade, she applied to sing at an end of the year show being put up by her class. They, however, rejected her application but this motivated her to continue singing so as to prove the naysayers wrong. The actress released her debut EP, ‘Hayleau’, in 2016. She released the EP under her alter ego, Hayleau. The R&B project explores issues such as love, heartbreak, and self-love. The EP features five songs including ‘Banana’, ‘You’re Mine’, ‘On Me’, ‘Nice and Slow’, and ‘Get Thru’. The actress has also revealed that her musical influences are singers such as Brandy, Toni Braxton, Sade, and Mariah etc.
Details of her Parents and Sister

If there is one thing that Law is known for, it is her feminist orientation. She not only plays strong-willed characters but is also a strong, independent and hardworking lady in real life. She regularly talks about such women issues in interviews and is not afraid to call out misogynism in the showbiz industry. Law may have gotten her backbone from her mom who she describes as a no-nonsense woman.

She has never been romantically linked with anyone neither has she been rumored to have dated anyone. Even if there is a beau in her life, she is very much keeping him/her to herself. Therefore, it is not wrong to conclude that she is single.
