Biography:

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."
