Rise to Prominence

In 2013, Hayes gained a bit of attention playing the character Sarah in the Naughty Dog developed video game “The Last of Us”. The game follows the story of a smuggler named Joel who escorts a teenage girl Ellie across the US in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by cannibalistic creatures which have been infected by a strain of the Cordyceps fungus. The game received critical acclaim, getting praise for visuals, gameplay, design, and narrative. It is one of the best-selling games on the PlayStation 3, actually one of the best-selling video games of all time.

After her work there, she appeared as a guest in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” before being cast in another film role. She worked on “Mercy” as a minor character before making a guest appearance in “Grey’s Anatomy” – the series is known for being the longest running scripted primetime show on ABC. In 2015, she had a role in the film “Stockholm, Pennsylvania”., which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and is the debut of director Nikole Beckwith. The story was later acquired by Lifetime, and aired on the network.


The Grinder and Recent Projects

During the same year as “Stockholm, Pennsylvania”, Hana was cast in the television show “The Grinder” which brought her a lot of fame. The legal series aired through Fox for a total of 22 episodes during its first season, and received a lot of acclaim from both viewers and critics, but somehow never reached high ratings, leading to its cancellation. In 2017, she was cast as Chloe in the film “To the Bone”, which is a drama starring Lily Collins, and follows the story of a woman who battles anorexia; it was released through Netflix.

During the same year, she had a guest role in “SWAT”, before getting another mainstream film project in “Insidious: The Last Key”. The horror film is the fourth installment of the “Insidious” franchise, though placed second in terms of chronology. The film received mixed reviews, but is the highest grossing of the franchise, though many critics insisted that it has run its course. One of her latest projects is the show “T@gged” which is a web series starring Lia Marie Johnson – it has been airing for over three seasons, with the latest being shown on Hulu.
