NGU's Lee Plays Tom Hanks' Daughter in 'Sully'

Tigerville SC (September 8, 2016) NGU freshman, Taylor Lee, will make her silver screen debut this weekend as the movie Sully, directed by screen legend Clint Eastwood and starring Tom Hanks, will hit movie theaters across the nation.

Lee, a NGU freshman theatre major from Landrum, S.C., plays the role of Kate Sullenberger, the daughter of Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger played by Tom Hanks and Lorraine Sullenberger played by Laura Linney.  

Sully details airline pilot Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger's successful water landing, that went down in pop-culture history as the "Miracle on the Hudson."

Lee says most of her scenes were mostly with Linney in Georgia in 2015. She said she spent a lot of time with Linney, but did not get to meet Hanks.

Sully hits theaters on Sept. 9, 2016.

Lee appeared on Scene on Seven, a local television show, on September 7. View Clip
