Brie Larson – American actress, singer, and songwriter.
Brianne Sidonie Desaulniers was born on 1 October 1989 in Sacramento, California. After her parents divorced, Brie moved to Los Angeles with her mother and sister. She wanted to become an actress since childhood. The young artist decided to use a pseudonym because her last name with French origins is very hard to pronounce. So Brie came up with Larson.
In 1998, Larson debuted on the TV screen in the talk show The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. On the big screen, she appeared in 1999 in a short film Special Delivery.
In 2001, Brianne got the leading role in the TV series Raising Dad. The project brought the young actress her first prestigious nomination for Young Artist Awards as "Best Performance in a TV Comedy Series – Leading Young Actress".
In 2004, for the role in a teenager comedy Sleepover, Larson got another nomination for the same award. However, this time it was a joint effort with other cast members for the "Best Performance in a Feature Film – Young Ensemble Cast" category.
