Rush, an actress, turns 19 on Thursday. She was born in Israel on May 12, 1997.
Her family moved to the U.S. when she was nine so her father could take a security job in Alabama.

Her first film role was Disney's "The Odd Life of Timothy Green." She's recently been in "Goosebumps" and "The Giver" and is currently filming "Hunter's Prayer" and "Holding Patterns."
