“I’ve gone to prom multiple times, had fights with the principal, a relationship with my teacher,” says the Greenville, South Carolina, native and oldest of seven children. “When people ask if I wish I had gone to high school, I tell them that I’ve acted all of that stuff out, and it just doesn’t seem like fun.”
The same cannot be said of her latest role, opposite George Clooney, in the sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland, slated for release next year. Robertson, who is 23, once again plays a teen—this time one who stumbles upon an alternate reality. Her famously dashing costar, she says, was “so not what you’d expect. During our scenes together, he’d pull out his phone and play fart noises.”
Robertson got her start in community theater at age 10. “I never had a speaking role; I was always Orphan Number Six or a monkey,” she says. At 14, she got an agent and moved with her grandmother to L.A., where she’s lived ever since. The baby-faced actress plans to stay at least a few more decades. “If I can play 15 when I am 25, I can play 35 when I’m 55,” she says. “That’s going to be my argument.”
Walt Disney Studios announced today in an official press release that principal photography has begun on Tomorrowland.
The film is set to star Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, and Thomas Robinson. The film is directed, produced and co-written by two-time Oscar winner Brad Bird. Lindelof and Jeffrey Chernov are also producers on the film. The screenplay is written by Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof from a story by Lindelof & Jeff Jensen and Brad Bird.
Jeff Jensen and John Walker are executive producing the project. Bernard Bellew and Tom Peitzman are serving as co-producers.
Below is an official blurb on the story from Disney:
Bound by a shared destiny, a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor jaded by disillusionment embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory as “Tomorrowland.”
Tomorrowland is set for a December 12, 2014 release date.

Before she takes on “Tomorrowland” next year, Britt Robertson will be an “Undiscovered Gyrl” in the indie adaptation of the 2009 novel of the same name, and now we have the first photo from the film which is in post-production and out to festivals.
Multi-hyphenate Allison Burnett directed the film, which is based on his own novel of the same name and follows Robertson’s Katie Kampenfelt, a recent high school graduate who takes a year off before college to explore her new adult life and write a blog about it: “A funny, erotic and poignant record of a young soul in peril, her blog gives her readership a rare, voyeuristic look into her exploits filled with men, alcohol and an insatiable desire to fill the void left by an absent father.” The film co-stars Justin Long, Martin Sheen and Robert Patrick.
