Shailene Woodley

A veteran of the small screen from the age of eight, actress Shailene Woodley demonstrated early and often that she had the makings of a Hollywood star. Before she was even old enough to drive, Woodley charmed audiences in recurring roles on the teen angst drama, "The O.C." (Fox, 2003-07), and as a young adolescent enduring the Revolutionary War in "Felicity: An American Girl Adventure" (The WB, 2005). Woodley soon secured a loyal fan base among young girls with her breakout role as a pregnant high schooler on "The Secret Life of an American Teenager" (ABC Family, 2008-2013). The youth-targeted melodrama proved a hit for the network, with the series debut ranking as its highest ever at the time. Woodley continued to grow as an actress during her tenure on the program, and within a few short years, wowed critics and audiences alike with her lauded performance of a bitter teenage daughter opposite George Clooney in the acclaimed comedy-drama "The Descendants" (2011). Only at the start of her career, Woodley had set the stage for future success on both television and film. She fulfilled that early promise with a series of roles in critically acclaimed box office successes.
