Brittany was the very first person cast for the 2010/2011 series Life Unexpected. The casting directors liked her so much that they picked her right away, without auditioning anyone else. Series creator Liz Tigelaar thought this was crazy when she heard that the main character had been selected so immediately, but as soon as she saw Brittany performing as the character, she loved her.
Brittany was discovered by an agent from Los Angeles at a convention in Hilton Head Island in which she took part while in grade school.
When she was 12, she started flying in and out of Los Angeles to audition for various roles.
Brittany loves to go to movies and hang out with her friends. She also goes to acting class when she's off from work.
In 2004, she was nominated for a Young Artist Award for "Best Performance in a TV Movie, Miniseries or Special - Leading Young Actress" for her role in The Ghost Club.
Brittany admires Natalie Portman and describes her as her "dream leading lady". Like Natalie, she would like to complete a college education majoring in something outside of the entertainment industry.
Brittany loves sports including surfing and football.
Brittany's nickname is Bee.
She is the oldest among seven siblings.
Brittany is five feet and two and a half inches tall.
Brittany: I think every project you're able to do is a stepping stone. In the beginning, you get experience, so people take you more seriously.
Brittany: (on Steve Carell) You would think that he would be a little more crazy and out there than he actually is. He's just this kind of down-to-earth, low key, family guy. And it's really refreshing because he's so great as the over-the-top comedian-type guy. He's so funny, but it's a different kind of funny than the way he is in most of his comedies.
Brittany: I really do love sports, but it's kind of a hazard when you're an actor.
Brittany: Dianne Wiest is the most inspiring woman. She is one of the most wonderful actors I have ever met.
Brittany: A lot of great actors don't even get as far as doing a commercial, because it's about the right time and the right place and it doesn't necessarily happen for everyone, even if you're the best actor in the world.
Brittany: (on her idol Natalie Portman) She did a great job of becoming a child star and growing up to be a wonderful adult actor. You don't see her in the media in a negative light and she has an amazing education. She has kind of the ideal career.
Brittany: I think I'm just really fortunate to have been able to do what I've done, but I have such high aspirations for what's to come.
Brittany: I don't like going to parties with people I don't really know or aren't really friends with. I would rather stay at home with close friends and kickback around my neck of the woods.
Brittany: I think I'm on top of my game in a sense that I have a great professional team, I have a great manager, I have a great agent and I've been really fortunate to work on some great projects.
Brittany: I think that's one of the great things about being an actor is that you're always learning something new. ... So you just learn and grow from what other people have experienced through their careers.
Brittany: I'm just kind of normal. There's not many things I really get to do besides work that I really enjoy.
Brittany: When I was younger, I loved entertaining. I would always entertain my parents and put on shows for everyone.
Brittany: (comparing herself and her character in "Dan in Real Life") We have similarities. Like I don't necessarily agree with my parents on everything, so I kind of understood where she was coming from. But she's much more passionate than I am, so it was kind of fun to tackle a person like that.
