Spoiler alert: actress Britt Robertson is “not the next big thing.” But even if she tells that to the Los Angeles Times, truth is: she’s absolutely killing it. After her debut in The Ghost Club (2003) led to a Young Artist Award Nomination, this 25-year-old South Carolina-born star has sprinted past forty-two acting credits and a starring role on Under the Dome (2013-2014). Here, charming clichés may have factored into her being cast as Angie McAlister, a young waitress at the Sweetbriar Rose (nominative determinism, yeah?), and a volunteer candy striper, who dreams of leaving home. But it remains, even after indulging in Beverly Hills life, and delivering 12 years of solid acting work, Robertson has Southern remnants she might still shuck off. But really, is being so sweet a bad thing? In upcoming Henry Joseph Church, she portrays Charlie, a girl of strong character who meets the titular Henry (played by master enigma Eddie Murphy) when he’s hired as a short-term cook; the two forge a unique friendship that lasts 15 years (and implies many lighthearted ahhs and heavyhearted tears). Robertson also told the Times that she’s actually looking for more character work. Fingers crossed she gets what she wants. CALIFUK screens would be blessed.
