Hilary Duff stars as Kelsey Peters on the critically-acclaimed and buzzy TV Land series "Younger," from "Sex and the City" creator Darren Star, which returns for Season five this summer. Known for her charming personality, Kelsey Peters is Liza's (Sutton Foster) closest work friend who proves time and time again that despite their obvious age gap, their friendship is still as strong as ever.
Ever since Hilary Duff first emerged on the public's radar as the star of Disney's enormously successful TV show "Lizzie McGuire," the Houston native has distinguished herself as a highly relatable performer with a strong connection to her fans — thanks not only to the funny, pretty and smart character she played onscreen, but also because of Duff's own natural warmth and girl-next-door charisma. Her popularity has led to a thriving career as both an actress and a singer-songwriter.
On the screen, Duff starred in numerous feature films including "The Lizzie McGuire Movie," "Agent Cody Banks," "A Cinderella Story," "Cheaper by the Dozen" and more serious roles, co-starring in John Cusack's critically-acclaimed 2008 film "War, Inc." and "According to Greta," in which Hilary played the title character and co-starred with Oscar® winner Ellyn Burstyn.
Duff also has a global prolific and successful singing career, entering the Top-40 music charts with the singles "So Yesterday" and "Come Clean." Her first three studio albums, 2003's multi-platinum blockbuster Metamorphosis, 2004's self-titled platinum-seller, and 2007's autobiographical dance-pop collection Dignity, have sold a collective 15 million copies worldwide. Her most recent album, 2015's Breathe In. Breathe Out. is a stellar collection of catchy, electro-tinged pop gems, many of which she co-wrote with groundbreaking songwriters and producers such as Sean Douglas (Jason Derulo, Demi Lovato), Tove Lo (Ellie Goulding, Icona Pop), Matthew Koma (Zedd, Alesso, One Republic), Bloodshy (Madonna, Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue) and Ed Sheeran – one of Duff's favorite artists – who wrote and vocal produced "Tattoo." The album was released in June 2015 on RCA Records and rocketed to #1 on iTunes in the hours upon its release. Additionally, the album debuted at #3 on the Billboard Overall Album Chart and #5 on the Billboard Top 200, marking Hilary's fifth straight top five debut.
Among her many accolades, Duff was nominated for both 2016 and 2017 People's Choice Awards for Favorite Cable TV Actress for her role as Kelsey in "Younger." Duff was also honored with two separate Teen Choice Awards and was also named by Teen People as one of the magazine's "25 Hottest Stars Under 25." Hilary is passionate about several charitable causes, especially those involving children and animals. Her charity work includes the founding of Blessings in a Back Pack which helps inner city schoolchildren get the nutrition they need. She's also involved with Make-A-Wish Foundation.
