Personal life

Rosman was born in Charleston, South Carolina.

She currently resides in West Hollywood, California. She also had an older stepsister, Katelyn Salmont (1986-2008).[1]

Outside of acting Rosman enjoys animals, especially horses, of which she owns many. She is a competitive equestrian show jumper and rides in jumping competitions using her horse Mentos Junior.[2] Rosman has Cherokee Indian roots. Mackenzie showed off her singing skills twice on "7th Heaven".

Rosman is an active supporter of fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and wishes to educate the public about the need for organ donation. Mackenzie's stepsister, Katelyn Salmont, lived with Cystic fibrosis and in late 2005, Salmont underwent a successful double lung-transplant. Sadly Katelyn died from Pneumonia and Cystic fibrosis on Christmas 2008. [3] Her stepfather Randy donated one organ. Both girls were featured in Teen People's "20 Teens Who Will Change the World". 7th Heaven produced a special episode about cystic fibrosis entitled "Back in the Saddle Again" which featured Salmont as herself, and Rosman and Salmont rode horses together, as they did at home. In 2005, 7th Heaven again brought Salmont on the show, post-transplant, which gave her a chance to explain about the new life she had been given in the episode entitled "X-Mas". Rosman also supports Childhelp Inc. and is an ambassador for the organization, which helps severely abused children.[4] Rosman is also the national honorary chairman for CureFinders, a school fund-raising program to help fund the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis.[3]

Rosman graduated from Valencia High School in late May 2007.

Career

In 1996, she got the part of Ruthie Camden on 7th Heaven by personally greeting each person in the room by a handshake during her audition. In addition to her role on 7th Heaven, Rosman appeared in the independent film Gideon, starring Christopher Lambert, Charlton Heston and Shelley Winters. She has appeared in numerous television commercials starting at age four including a Tuff's Diaper commercial and a Nike shoe commercial. Her film roles have included JonBenét Ramsey in Getting Away with Murder: The JonBenét Ramsey Mystery, and Molly MacLemore in Gideon.

Her latest film role has been Jill in the new horror movie, Fading of the Cries. And her next film role is Roslyn Price in Socio.
