Annasophia Robb    

Film and Television Actress; "The Carrie Diaries"

Annasophia's first acting gig was a McDonald's Happy Meal commercial, and she made her feature-film debut soon after, starring as India "Opal" Buloni opposite Jeff Daniels in "Because of Winn-Dixie," a feel-good family film about how a dog changes the lives of a small-town Southern family. Robb made her television debut as a guest star on the intensely popular Nickelodeon series "Drake & Josh," and landed her first lead role as the title character in the television movie, "Samantha: An American Girl Holiday," which also featured Mia Farrow.

Robb next appeared with Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" as the gum-smacking Violet Beauregarde. Continuing her hot streak, Robb starred as an imaginative young girl who strikes up a friendship with a talented but socially outcast boy in Disney's "Bridge to Terabithia." The film allowed Robb to demonstrate her talent as a singer as well; she recorded a single for the film's soundtrack, "Keep Your Mind Wide Open," which debuted at No. 90 on the Billboard Hot 100.

She later portrayed a possessed young girl opposite Hilary Swank in the Biblical thriller "The Reaping" and appeared as the younger version of Rachel Bilson's Millie in the Doug Liman action flick "Jumper." Taking on a more mature role in 2008, Robb starred with Charlize Theron and Nick Stahl in the drama "Sleepwalking." After playing a girl with paranormal powers in "Race to Witch Mountain," Robb portrayed 13-year-old surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost an arm in a shark attack off the coast of Hawaii in the Christian-themed "Soul Surfer."

Meanwhile, she landed the highly-coveted leading role of a young Carrie Bradshaw on the teen drama, "The Carrie Diaries," a prequel of sorts to the hit series "Sex and the City." Although underwhelming viewership numbers endangered the show's existence, Robb's performance as Carrie won over many ardent supporters.

In 2013, she branched out by appearing in the Sundance hit "The Way, Way Back," an ensemble comedy starring Steve Carell, Sam Rockwell and an array of fan-favorite indie-inclined actors.
