Kaitlyn Dias's first acting role was as Young Jessie in the short film "Burial" (2011). The short was directed by Karl Ford, and follows a young woman's journey through the desert west. Two years later Dias was given her second role, as Jenny in the Julio Saldarriaga movie "The Shifting." Dias scored her highest profile role to date when she lent her voice to the character of Riley in the Pixar movie "Inside Out" (2015). The movie is the story of a young girl whose core emotions -- Joy, Fear, Sadness, Anger and Disgust -- are personified by different characters who attempt to help Riley manage the challenges of life. This proves to be very difficult when Riley and her family relocate from the Midwest to San Francisco. In addition to Dias, the movie featured the voices of Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Lewis Black and Phyllis Smith, and was co-written and directed by Pixar veteran Pete Docter. The film was released to widespread acclaim in June 2015, with Dias' emotional, naturalistic performance as Riley regularly cited as a highlight.
