Biography

A striking young actress gifted well beyond her years, Brie Larson cut her professional teeth with television roles on shows like "Raising Dad" (The WB, 2001-02) and "Right on Track" (Disney Channel, 2003) and scored tween-friendly hits by appearing in the feature films "13 Going on 30" (2004), "Sleepover" (2004) and "Hoot" (2006). She made the transition from child star to grown-up actress smoothly, earning acclaim for her turns in such movies as "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" (2010) and "21 Jump Street" (2012) and impressed critics with her nuanced turn as Toni Collette's self-destructive daughter on "The United States of Tara" (Showtime, 2009-2011). Critics dubbed her the "It" girl of SXSW 2013 for her flurry of high-profile projects, particularly her raved-about, star-making lead role in the drama "Short Term 12" (2013), which earned her serious award buzz. Two years later, she exceeded those expectations with a subtle performance in the indie drama "Room" (2015), which garnered widespread critical acclaim and a Best Actress Oscar. One of the rare talents who only improved with age, Brie Larson gave critics and fans ample reason to expect her to reach even greater artistic heights over time.
