She acts alongside Barry Sloane, Vincent Kartheiser, Anna Camp and Ron Livingston. At the premiere of Saints and Strangers at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, Hayward was quoted saying, "I"?ve done quite a few period pieces before but because this is for NatGeo this is so historically correct: every little detail, from hair and makeup to what they said, how they said it, the sets, to everything, was just historically spot on. And being around that was just incredible. It felt like you would step back in time every time you"?re on set."

Set to be released in October 2016, Hayward stars in the Action/Thriller feature film, Accident.
