Played by Kerris Dorsey

Bridget is Ray and Abby's smart and driven oldest child. Completely against her parents' wishes, Bridget falls for the foster child of a famous rap star, causing her to grow up very fast.

Kerris Lilla Dorsey is best known for her roles as Brad Pitt's daughter in the Oscar® nominated film MONEYBALL and as Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner's daughter in the Disney film adaptation of ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY.
No newbie to television, audiences watched her grow up as Paige Whedon on the critically-acclaimed series BROTHERS & SISTERS, which ran for five seasons. She has also guest-starred on various television shows including DON'T TRUST THE B---- IN APARTMENT 23, MEDIUM, and SHAKE IT UP!
Dorsey's movie career ranges from heavy drama (WALK THE LINE), to lighthearted family comedy (JUST LIKE HEAVEN, Disney's GIRL VS. MONSTER, and the American Girl series MCKENNA SHOOTS FOR THE STARS), but her appearance in the Golden Globe® and Academy Award® nominated film MONEYBALL established her as a bona-fide star. In the film, Dorsey displayed her musical skills by playing the guitar and covering one of her personal favorite songs "The Show," by Australian songstress Lenka. Dorsey's rendition sold 86,000 downloads on iTunes, and reached #6 on the soundtracks chart.
Most recently, Kerris starred in Disney's film adaptation of ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY. Kerris played Emily, Alexander's sister who, along with the entire family, experiences a very bad day as the result of a resentful birthday wish by Alexander. For the film, Kerris and her real life sister, Justine, wrote and performed the end credits song ("Best Worst Day") which went on to win the Overall Grand Prize in the 2014 USA Songwriting Competition.
