AnnaSophia Robb: A Pictorial Tribute to the New Star of The Carrie Diaries

AnnaSophia Robb has been a popular actress since first gaining attention in the 2005 film Because of Winn Dixie. The young star gave a standout performance as India "Opal" Buloni in the wonderful family film that made both fans and critics alike take notice.This was quite an accomplishment for an unknown actress in a cast that included veteran actors Jeff Bridges, Cicely Tyson, Elle Fanning and musician Dave Matthews.

She followed up this success with the prominent role of Violet Beauregarde in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Tim Burton's remake of the classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Since then she has starred in many other features such as The Reaping, Bridge to Terabithia, Sleepwalking, Race to Witch Mountain and Soul Surfer. AnnaSophia has been nominated for several awards for her films and has won a few as well.

AnnaSophia was born December 8, 1993, in Denver, Colorado, to David and Janet Robb. Her father is an architect while her mother is an interior designer. Her interesting first name came from her maternal great grandmother (Anna Sophie) and her paternal grandmother (Anna Maria). Her mixed ancestry includes English, Scottish, Danish, Swedish, and Irish components that certainly seem to combine very nicely as AnnaSophia is one of the most beautiful young actresses in Hollywood today!

Fans of AnnaSophia have been fortunate to grow up with her as she began her career as a cute little girl and blossomed over the years into the gorgeous young woman we see today. But there is more to AnnaSophia than a pretty face and a talent for the performing arts. The young student has been accepted to prestigious Stanford University though she is deferring acceptance due to acting commitments. But this beauty clearly has plenty of brains to go with her other wonderful attributes.

I hope you have enjoyed the pictures of AnnaSophia that I have included in this tribute. I have tried to choose some from various points in her already highly successful career. It is amazing to think what this young lady has accomplished in only a few years! Perhaps in a few more years we will be able to look back and see that her new successes have eclipsed even these early victories. She certainly has the talent.

I will close by pointing out that AnnaSophia has been chosen for the role of Carrie Bradshaw in The Carrie Diaries, a prequel of sorts to the hit television show Sex in the City which starred Sarah Jessica Parker as an older version of the character. The show will air on the CW Network beginning in January and is said to be a teen drama. With Ms. Robb in the lead role success is practically guaranteed and will be interesting to see how this new chapter in her career unfolds!
