DCOM roles: Mae Hartley in How to Build a Better Boy

Kelli Michelle Berglund (born February 9, 1996) is an American actress and dancer. She is best known for playing Bree Davenport in Disney XD's Lab Rats. She is also stars in an upcoming DCOM, How to Build a Better Boy as Mae Hartley.



Berglund began her career at a young age, gracing the small screen as a series regular on TLC's Hip Hop Harry. TV appearances also include Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, and America's Next Producer. Berglund also appeared in the indie film, Bye Bye Benjamin. Her commercial credits include campaigns for Old Navy, Hyundai, Bratz, McDonald's and Mattel, among others. She has also appeared in print and modeling campaigns for Reebok and the Camarillo Academy of Performing Arts. Berglund has been honored with many awards in dance for her lyrical contemporary, hip-hop, tap, and jazz techniques. Though she is equally versatile in these types of dance, her favorite style is contemporary — a blend of ballet and jazz. 

Berglund stars as overly outgoing, bionic super-human Bree with lightning speed abilities, in the Disney XD live-action comedy series Lab Rats alongside co-stars: Tyrel Jackson Williams, Billy Unger, and Spencer Boldman. Bree is one of the three bionic teen siblings, who tries to navigate a "normal" world of school, friends and family, with the occasional bionic glitch. In 2013, Berglund was guest star in the Disney XD series Kickin' It, where she played a karate prodigy named Sloane Jennings. Also her character sings the song "Had Me @ Hello" in a duet with Olivia Holt's character.

In mid-2013, Berglund began work on the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, How to Build a Better Boy. The film is being shot in Toronto, Canada. She plays Mae Hartley, one of the two main roles. The other is filled by China Anne McClain . The film is directed by Paul Hoen and will be premiered in 2014.
