Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A familiar face to both young and adult television audiences, Britt Robertson graduated from juvenile roles in the early 2000s to more mature parts in such popular film and TV efforts as "Under the Dome" (CBS, 2013-15). The Charlotte, North Carolina native began appearing on television shortly after her 10th birthday and worked steadily on the small screen; there, she displayed a wide range of talents, from fresh-faced young women in "Growing Pains: Return of the Seavers" (ABC, 2004) and "Dan in Real Life" (2007), to darker performances like an alleged victim of Satanic possession on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS, 2000-15). Robertson was soon in line for leading roles, though it took several tries on series like "Life Unexpected" (The CW, 2010-2011) before she landed her first hit show with "Under the Dome." Its success was soon followed by appearances in major features like "Delivery Man" (2013), which underscored Robertson's long-overdue ascent to stardom.

A familiar face to both young and adult television audiences, Britt Robertson graduated from juvenile roles in the early 2000s to more mature parts in such popular film and TV efforts as "Under the Dome" (CBS, 2013-15).

Its success was soon followed by appearances in major features like "Delivery Man" (2013), which underscored Robertson's long-overdue ascent to stardom. Born Brittany Leanna Robertson on April 18, 1990 in Charlotte, North Carolina, Britt Robertson was the eldest of seven children by parents Ryan and Beverly Robertson. She began performing at the Greenville Little Theater as a child before taking the plunge and entering the Hollywood audition scene in the late 1990s. Robertson made her debut as the young Sheena on the syndicated adventure series "Sheena" (2000-2002). Juvenile roles as headstrong girls in various series led to her first lead in the kids' supernatural comedy "The Ghost Club" (2003) and her first mainstream breakout project as a second-generation Seaver in "Growing Pains: Return of the Seavers," a reunion film for the cast of "Growing Pains" (ABC, 1985-1992). Robertson worked steadily in both features and on television for much of the 2000s, enjoying plum roles on a 2007 episode of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" as a young woman accused of murdering her family while allegedly possessed by evil forces, and as Steve Carell's dramatic daughter in "Dan in Real Life." Robertson's profile continued to rise in the 2010s, with small but notable roles in features, like an ill-fated victim in "Scream 4" (2011), as well as the female lead in Jon Kasdan's romantic high school comedy "The First Time" (2012). Television proved to be her more prominent showcase, most notably on the series "Life Unexpected," about a girl (Robertson) in foster care that tracks down the biological parents (Shiri Appleby and Kristoffer Polaha) who gave her up for adoption. Though critically praised, the series was cancelled after its second season. Robertson then moved on to "The Secret Circle" (The CW, 2011-2012), a supernatural drama about a young woman (Robertson) that discovered that she was descended from a long line of witches. It too suffered a quick cancellation. However, Robertson rebounded with a supporting series regular turn on the surprise hit fantasy series "Under the Dome," based on the novel of the same name by horror icon Stephen King. Another supporting turn, this time in the 2013 Vince Vaughn comedy "Delivery Man," quickly followed it.
