Brittany Leanna "Britt" Robertson (born April 18, 1990) is an American actress. She was nominated for a Young Artist Award for her film debut in The Ghost Club (2003) and her subsequent films include Keeping Up with the Steins (2006), Dan In Real Life (2007), The Tenth Circle (2008), Mother and Child (2009), Scream 4 (2011) and Delivery Man (2013). Her television series work include Swingtown (2008), Life Unexpected (2010–11), The Secret Circle (2011–12) and Under the Dome (2013–14).
Robertson was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, the daughter of Beverly (née Hayes) and Ryan Robertson. She grew up in Greenville, South Carolina, where she first aspired to act. She is the oldest of seven children, with three brothers and three sisters, and was homeschooled by her mother. She stayed in Chester, South Carolina with her grandparents, Shuler and Jerry Robertson, for a couple of months while filming The Ghost Club.
Robertson first appeared before an audience when performing various roles on stage at the Greenville Little Theater in her home town. At age twelve, Robertson began making extended trips to Los Angeles to audition for roles in television series and landed a spot in a television pilot for a series which was never picked up by a network. Her first big break came when she was selected to play Michelle Seaver in the Growing Pains: Return of the Seavers. Her most notable role to date is that of Cara Burns in the 2007 film Dan In Real Life. Robertson appeared in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in the episode "Go to Hell", and had a role as a recurring character in the CBS television series Swingtown.
In 2009, she played a small role as DJ in The Alyson Stoner Project. She also made a guest appearance on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit in the episode "Babes" as Tina Bernardi, a Catholic teen who gets pregnant in a pact. In 2010, she starred in The CW's series Life Unexpected as Lux Cassidy, a teenager who, while in the process of being emancipated, gets back in her birth parents' lives. In late autumn 2010, she starred as Allie Pennington in the Disney Channel original film Avalon High, which is based on Meg Cabot's book of the same name.
Robertson starred as Cassie Blake in The CW's 2011 television series The Secret Circle until the show was cancelled in 2012 after its first season. That same year, she appeared in the film The First Time.
