Biography

The daughter of Oscar-nominated actor Eric Roberts and the niece of "America's Sweetheart," Julia Roberts, youthful actress Emma Roberts seemed almost destined by blood to go into the family business. Her first professional claim to fame, however, came on the small screen for her role as junior high school student Allie Singer on the popular children's television series "Unfabulous" (Nickelodeon, 2004-07). Like her famous relatives, she eventually made the move to the big screen, starring in "Aquamarine" (2006), "Nancy Drew" (2007), "Hotel for Dogs" (2009) and "Valentine's Day" (2010). Gradually, Roberts began to take on more mature roles, transitioning from teenager to young adult onscreen in features like "It's Kind of a Funny Story" (2010), "Scream 4" (2011) and "The Art of Getting By" (2011). While her famous lineage may have helped her start down the path to stardom, her talent kept her moving ahead rapidly.
