Abigail Breslin Biography

Birthdate: April 14, 1996
Birthplace: New York, New York

Abigail Breslin may only be 12 years old, but she's already accomplished more than most actors ever do. We're taking a look at the young life of this Academy Award nominated actress. Check it out!

New York Roots

Abigail Kathleen Breslin was born to a computer programmer dad and a stay-at-home mom in New York City. She has two older brothers, Ryan and Spencer. Spencer, who is also an actor, was discovered in a playground when he was three, and paved the way for his little sister's acting career. Abigail began making commercials when she was three and was cast as Mel Gibson's daughter in the movie Signs when she was only five.

Little Miss Oscar

After Signs, the offers came pouring in for Abby, and she went on to star in Raising Helen with Kate Hudson and The Princess Diaries 2 with Anne Hathaway. She also kept herself busy with TV appearances on Law and Order, NCIS, and The Ghost Whisperer. Her real break came when she landed the role of Olive in the film Little Miss Sunshine. The movie won two Academy Awards and Abigail was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. While she lost to Jennifer Hudson, Abigail had made her mark on Hollywood.

Box Office Gold

Abigail Breslin has been hard at work since her Sunshine success. She starred in The Santa Clause 3 with her brother Spencer, starred alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones in No Reservations, was in Definitely, Maybe with Ryan Reynolds and Rachel Weisz, and found time to film Nim's Island with Jodie Foster. Her latest flick is Kitt Kittridge: American Girl (based on the American Doll line) and she's filming My Sister's Keeper, which is due out in 2009.
