  • At the age of ten, AnnaSophia Robb began her career on a church stage in front of 500 people in Colorado, USA. Soon, thistalanted little girl would be seen by millions in the lead role of Opal, opposite Jeff Daniels, in the 20th Century Fox film Because of Winn-Dixie (2005), directed by Wayne Wang. Since then, she has appeared in dozens of films that capture all the grace and intelligence she brings to her acting career. Right now, she is starring as the teenage version of Carrie Bradshaw (the character that made Sarah Jessica Parker famous) in "The Carrie Diaries,"a television series that serves as a prequel to "Sex and the City." Of course, AnnaSophia was ready for her busy life before the camera. She has competed in gymnastics since she was five, has won awards in Irish dance as early as seven, landed a national recurring radio voice-over at eight, and got her first TV and print commercial in Denver six months later (the ad is still in use).

    You might say that AnnaSophia has danced her way to the movies, since she started by excelling equally well in jazz, hip-hop, break-dancing, and the Irish jig. But, she's also pretty terrific at swimming, skiing, running, and modeling. And when she's not working with animals, she's telling jokes and doing a bit of singing. Though her talent is undeniable, AnnaSophia also possesses a certain poise and relatability that many young stars her age do not. She chooses her roles carefully and works hard to balance her acting life with her personal life. Bethany Hamilton, a surfer whom AnnaSophia portrayed in the 2011 film "Soul Surfer," once described AnnaSophia as "a great friend, a terrific student, and a wonderful role model for young girls."moreless

    • AnnaSophia: (on taking up the role of a young Carrie Bradshaw that Sarah Jessica Parker originated) I definitely didn't want to mimic Sarah Jessica Parker because I have a very different energy but I obviously watched the show and I want to capture the flavor of the original.

    • AnnaSophia: (on which she prefers doing; movies or tv) Movies. I just feel like I have more versatility that way. I can move from one film to the next and do all different genres and stuff like that. But I think TV shows are great.

    • AnnaSophia Robb: I love to read, and I am kind of different from most of the kids at my school. I hate gossip and being catty and playing games with guys' minds. I'm not into it. I'd rather be reading a book. I have to laugh at it sometimes. You hear all these stories, and then you get to L.A, and there are bigger problems - like world poverty. The kids at my school just aren't talking about that.

    • AnnaSophia Robb: I want to go to college. I want to have other options. But, as I get more and more involved with filmmaking, I just grow to love it more and more. There are just so many different avenues, and I hope I can keep on acting. I have been very blessed, and I have been very fortunate, and my family has been so supportive, but I think, in the end, I’ll end up producing and acting. That’s what I think I am going to do.

    • AnnaSophia Robb: (about co-star Johnny Depp) He's a really amazing guy. There was such a big mob around him all the time, so when I was filming with him, I got nervous because everyone was making such a big deal about him. But when I just got to talking with him, he's just a really sweet man - really normal and loves his kids and is always talking about them.
