Britt Robertson first aspired to act when she was a child, when she began performing in local plays. At 12 years old she was already travelling to Los Angeles, from her Charlotte hometown, to audition. After minor roles in several movies and TV shows, she snagged a slot in the TV movie Growing Pains: Return of the Seavers, which was her first major break.
After a two-episode stint in the comedy Freddie and a guest stint on CSI, Robertson starred as the rebellious Cara in the Steve Carell film Dan in Real Life. While the film was a moderate success, it led to a recurring role in the short-lived CBS series Swingtown, and a slot in another TV movie, The Tenth Project.
In 2010, Robertson starred in her own television series, Life Unexpected, appearing alongside Shiri Appleby and Kristoffer Polaha. She also signed up for a role in the fourth film in the Scream franchise. In 2011, she played Cassie Blake on The Secret Circle. After the series was canceled, she moved on to play Angie on the TV series Under the Dome.
