Mollee Gray was destined to be a dancer, actress, and singer. She was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and raised in small town Orem. At a young age, Gray began formal studio dance training at The Dance Club in her hometown. At age 12, after attending an audition with Director Kenny Ortega, Gray booked a job dancing in the popular Disney movie High School Musical. Impressed by her talent, Ortega connected her with an agent. Due to the movie's success, she was given the
opportunity to be a part of the two sequels that followed.
Gray returned to her Disney roots in the smash hit Teen Beach Movie, which premiered with over 14 million viewers and is the 2nd highest DCOM of all time. She played the fun, quirky, and lovable character named "Giggles," part of the classic beach party movie, Mack (Maia Mitchell) and Brady (Ross Lynch) get sucked into. She will reprise her role in the highly anticipated sequel, Teen Beach 2, which premiered on The Disney Channel. Teen Beach 2 debuted as cable's No.1 movie of 2015 to date, and stands as the No. 1 cable-TV telecast in nearly two years for Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14. According to The Huffington Post, the films have "the potential to rival the wildly successful High School Musical Trilogy."
In addition to reprising her role as "Giggles," Gray can be seen as lead character Amanda in Double Daddy, a psychological thriller directed by Lee Friedlander. The TV movie tells the story of high school sweethearts Amanda (Gray) and Connor (Cameron Palatas), who are very much in love. When Amanda learns she's pregnant with Connor's child, her anger turns to heartbreak with the revelation that Connor has also impregnated another young girl — the scheming siren Heather who maybe out to eliminate her romantic rival altogether, even before Amanda's baby is born. The film premiered on Lifetime. Her latest project is a leading role alongside Kevin Sorbo and Eric Roberts in the action thriller The Reliant, to be released later
Things aren't slowing down for Gray. She played the lead role of Courtney, a young and impressionable college student who faces harassment and hazing during sorority rush in the indie film South 32. The film has won the 2016 IFS Award for Best Thriller Feature Film. Gray stars alongside fellow TV stars Melissa Archer and Sean Kanan. In addition to this much talked about role, the multi-talented actress is a veteran of the popular competition show, So You Think You Can Dance.

With a wealth of experience behind her, Gray's rise to the top continues. She has become a beloved role model to her fans, earning her two nominations for "Favorite Dance Idol" and "Favorite Dancer on TV/Film" at the 2013 KARtv Dance Awards.
