AnnaSophia Robb Bio (Age and Family Details)
Robb was born in Denver on December 8, 1993, the son of interior designer Janet and architect David Robb. She is of Danish, English, Irish, Scottish and Swedish descent and was named after her maternal great-grandmother and paternal grandmother, named Anna Sophie and Anna Marie respectively.
AnnaSophia grew up in a Christian home and was taught at home. However, in 2009 the Arapahoe Herald reported that she attended Arapahoe High School Centennial in Colorado, which she eventually graduated from in 2012. That same year, she announced that she was accepted to Stanford University, but admission was postponed due to filming.
Although it is known that Robb is the daughter of Janet and David Robb, it is not known who her siblings are. Therefore, many assume that she is the only child of her parents.
As mentioned in the introduction, Robb was interested in acting and started acting at an early age. Her first performance took place on her church stage, in front of an audience of about 500 people.
When she realized her potential, her parents gave her a big push by signing her up for both acting classes and competitions. She also took part in dance and gymnastics competitions before she stopped concentrating on acting.

This was followed by her first major role. She played the leading role as the title character in a brown wig in the TV special Samantha: An American Girl Holiday. In 2005 (at the age of 12 years) Robb played the lead role in the film adaptation of two popular children’s books – Because of Winn-Dixie and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
