Devon Hales is an American actress best known for playing the role of April Stevens in the Netflix show, ‘Teenage Bounty Hunters.’
‘Teenage Bounty Hunters’ is a comedy-teen series created by Kathleen Jordan, that follows high school students and fraternal twins as they bounty hunt.
Since people have been curious about the talented actor who plays in the series, here are some things to get familiar with Devon Hales.
How Old is Devon Hales?
Devon Hales was born on December 5, 2000, under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius. She grew up in Georgia, the United States where she attended a private Christian school for middle school education.
She later transferred to public school for high school when she realized her interest in theater studies during her senior year. After that, Devon went to Berry College to pursue her dream. But, some months into the semester, Devon realized that the environment in the college was not motivating her.
“At Berry, there were a lot of great people, a lot of talented people who were doing theater, but that was not their ultimate goal, that was not sometimes even their major. It took being in an environment where I wasn’t necessarily being challenged (to make) me say, ‘Oh my God. No judgment, but I do not want to be like that. I really, really want to do this for real and I need to be in an environment where I am around people who want to do the same thing and who are pushing me to better and really work for it.’” - Devon Hales in an interview with Variety editor Emma Scott
That was how Devon transferred to Kennesaw State University and graduated from there with a theater degree.

Before setting off on her career, Devon was already performing in famous plays like ‘Closer Than Ever,’ ‘Into the Woods,’ ‘Arms and the Man,’ ‘Cabaret,’ and ‘Red Hanrahan,’ during college.
