Mary Mouser: TV teen has positive ‘Body’ image

Youth Impact Report 2011: Up Next

Arkansas native Mary Mouser, who plays Dana Delany’s daughter Lacey on ABC’s “Body of Proof,” may only be 15, but she’s already an industry veteran — even if by total accident. At age 5, she was picked as Abigail Breslin’s stand-in for “Signs.”

“We were on vacation and just happened to see this open call,” she says. Since then, Mouser has racked up appearances on such diverse shows as “Ghost Whisperer,” “Lie to Me,” “The King of Queens,” “NCIS” and “Scrubs.” She has also played the child lead in Hallmark’s “A Stranger’s Heart” telepic and done voiceover work on “Bambi 2” and “Dragon Hunters.”

“My parents have always been so supportive,” says Mouser, whose “Body of Proof” role has been greatly expanded in season two. “I’m moving into the house, Lacey’s relationship with her mom Megan is changing, and she’s also dealing with all those teenage issues — boys, body image — and Megan doesn’t know how to handle it yet. I’m turning into a crazy teenager!”

Mouser is also turning into a much-in-demand actress. She next appears in the dual roles of Savannah and Emma in Disney Channel’s upcoming movie “Frenemies.”
