For example, the 8-year-old girl had the idea to go to the casting in an advertising agency to get a place in a video about toys or sweets. The plan was implemented but not completely. She did not sell Barbie and cakes and macaroni but the cheese of famous brand Kraft Foods Inc.
She decided not to stop there. Her photos often appeared on the covers of children's and later youth magazines and editions for teenagers. However, there was not only one ambitious girl in her family. Peyton's elder sister, Brittany, was passionate about her modeling career and moved to New York at the same time.
She followed a sister to conquer the catwalks when the girl was 12 years old. Her height of 5,5 feet (1.70 m) was suitable for a career of the model and her attractive appearance made her an ideal candidate.
In the summer of 1998, she was engaged in the acting agency and she studied at the School of American Ballet at the same time. She was able to have impressive achievements in choreographic art. She even performed in the famous production "The Nutcracker" but she was more interested in the movie industry.

In 2018, she was involved in the filming of the movie Gotham. The viewers have been interested in the story about the young years of Batman`s life since 2014, that is why the project can be called stable. One of the partners of the actress, who played the character of Ivy Pepper (Poison Ivy), was Cameron Monaghan. The actor, who is known for his roles in such series as Rizzoli & Isles, Shameless, he got the central role of Joker in the series Shameless.

Peyton prefers to ignore issues, which are related to her own life. She is included in the list of the closed persons of the American television industry. She does not try to take pictures in a swimsuit. She has her page on "Instagram" but she rarely updates the content. She does not report about each day, starting with the morning selfie without makeup, unlike her colleagues. She does not use her account on Twitter.
She usually appears with her family members or close friends at open shows and awards, premieres. There is no reliable information about her private life. Perhaps she does not have romantic relationships. The star performer has no children. If she is pregnant, her diffidence probably will not allow the tabloids to publish a new number with her picture on the cover and the caption: "Pregnant!".
