AnnaSophia Robb Biography

ANNASOPHIA ROBB

Date of Birth: December 8, 1993

AnnaSophia Robb began performing at the age of five on a church stage in her hometown of Denver, Colorado. By the time she was seven, she was winning awards in Irish dance competitions. In 2002, at the age of eight, she landed a national radio voiceover and did her first print and TV commercial. Shortly after, she played a role in the still-unreleased independent film, Daddy's Day.

Since then, AnnaSophia hasn't stopped working. At the age of nine, she won a lead role in the 20th Century Fox feature film Because of Winn-Dixie (2005), directed by Wayne Wang and co-starring Jeff Daniels. Next, she was off to Toronto to film the title role in the WB's TV movie based on the very popular American Girl dolls/books: Samantha, An American Girl Holiday (2004). For the role, she covered her short blonde hair with a long brown wig, so she would more closely resemble the character.

Just a week after filming wrapped, she flew to London, England to play Violet Beauregarde in the highly anticipated Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), opposite Johnny Depp. AnnaSophia also found time to guest star on an episode of the TV series Drake & Josh in 2004, playing the role of Liza. More recently she played Bethany Hamilton in the true life story, Soul Surfer.

In her spare time, AnnaSophia enjoys swimming, gymnastics, skiing, running, singing and spending time with her animals. She lives with her family in Colorado.
