Britt Robertson is only 25 years old, but her stellar résumé suggests otherwise.
In 2010, she landed her first lead role in the TV series Life Unexpected. A year later,
she starred in another series, The Secret Circle. Then came supporting roles in Under the Dome and Cake; the lead in the new Nicholas Sparks adaptation, The Longest Ride; and, come May 22, she’s starring alongside arguably the most famous male actor in Hollywood—yes, George Clooney—in Disney’s new film, Tomorrowland. Although she’s a seasoned actress with looks to boot, April Webster and Alyssa Weisberg, casting directors for Tomorrowland, say it’s the North Carolina native’s down-to-earth attitude that gives her star power. “She has a little bit
of that tomboy quality we were looking for in this role and a strong sense of self and wonder,”
says Weisberg. “And she has a great sense of humor,” adds Webster. “She brings a sense of joy when she’s on set.”
