London: David Hasselhoff`s daughter credits her family with giving her the confidence to play a weight-loss camper in new TV show `Huge`.
The upcoming programme, starring actress Nikki Blonsky, is based on the book of the same name by Sasha Paley, about a group of teens and staff at weight-loss camp Wellness Canyon. Hayley will play Amber, a curvy teen, who is the slimmest girl at the camp but considers herself too big, reports a news website.
And the 17-year-old admits she may have turned down the part if her parents had not encouraged her to drop pounds like most other Hollywood actresses.
"In Los Angeles, everybody feels like you have to be a certain way to fit in... I think that`s why I`ve really stayed grounded because of my family and stayed true to myself. No matter what size - they always supported me with everything that I wanted to do."
