BIOGRAPHY:

Abigail Kathleen Breslin (born April 14, 1996) is an American actress.

Breslin was born in New York City, the daughter of Kim and Michael, a telecommunications expert, computer programmer, and consultant. She has two older brothers, Ryan and Spencer, who are also actors. Breslin lives in New York with her family, which her maternal grandparents have described as "very close-knit". She is named after First Lady of the United States Abigail Adams.

Breslin's career began at the age of three when she appeared in a Toys "R" Us commercial. Her first acting role was in the 2002 science fiction thriller Signs, directed by M. Night Shyamalan, where she played Bo Hess, the daughter of the main character, Graham Hess (Mel Gibson). Signs garnered mostly positive reviews and was a box office success, grossing $408 million worldwide. Breslin's performance in the film was praised by critics. David Ansen of Newsweek wrote that she and her co-star 'Rory Culkin' gave "terrifically natural, nuanced performances". In 2004, she appeared in the film Raising Helen, in which she and her brother Spencer played siblings but the film fared poorly.

Breslin had a small role in The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. In the independent film Keane, she played Kira Bedik, a young girl who reminds the mentally disturbed protagonist William Keane (Damian Lewis) of his abducted daughter. Keane had a limited theatrical release and grossed only $394,390 worldwide but it received positive reviews and Breslin's performance was praised by critics. Meghan Keane of The New York Sun wrote that "the scenes between Mr. Lewis and the charmingly fragile Kira, winningly played by Ms. Breslin, bring a captivating humanity to the film".

Breslin's breakthrough role was in the 2006 comedy-drama Little Miss Sunshine, where she played Olive Hoover, a beauty pageant contestant, the youngest in a dysfunctional family on a road trip. She was cast at the age of six, years before filming was started. Her co-stars, 'Greg Kinnear' and 'Alan Arkin', both mentioned that they were "astounded by her seriousness of purpose during shooting". Breslin's performance was highly praised.

Breslin appeared in the 2007 romantic comedy No Reservations, playing the niece of master chef Kate Armstrong (Catherine Zeta-Jones). Also in 2007, she starred in another romantic comedy, Definitely, Maybe, as the daughter of a recently divorced father (played by Ryan Reynolds). Definitely, Maybe received generally favorable reviews, with Steven Rea of The Philadelphia Inquirer writing that Breslin is "alarmingly cute – but she backs the cuteness up with serious acting instinct".

In 2008, Breslin starred with 'Jodie Foster' in the film Nim's Island as Nim Rusoe, a young girl who lives on a remote tropical island. Also in 2008, Breslin appeared in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl as the title character. The film was based on the American Girl line of dolls, books, and accessories of which Breslin is a fan.

In 2009, Breslin appeared in My Sister's Keeper, where she played the role of Anna Fitzgerald, a young girl who was conceived to be a donor for her sister, Kate, who suffers from leukemia. 'Elle and 'Dakota Fanning' were slated to play the roles of Anna and Kate respectively; however, Dakota refused to shave her head for the role, so she and Elle were replaced by 'Sofia Vassilieva' and Breslin. My Sister's Keeper received mixed reviews but was a financial success. James Berardinelli wrote that Breslin and Vassilieva "display a natural bond one might expect from sisters, and there's no hint of artifice or overacting in either performance". Also in 2009, Breslin appeared in the horror comedy Zombieland as Little Rock. Director Ruben Fleischer said that "the dream was always to get Abigail Breslin" for the role. The film received positive reviews and was successful at the box office.

In 2011, Breslin voiced Priscilla, a cactus mouse in the animated comedy Rango, and appeared in the romantic comedy New Year's Eve.

In July 2012, she was cast in August: Osage County, the film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name, alongside 'Julia Roberts' and Meryl Streep'.

In 2013, Breslin appeared in the film adaptation of Orson Scott Card's novel, Ender's Game. The film received mixed-to-positive reviews from critics but it was a disappointment at the box office, grossing only $87 million worldwide on a $110 million budget.
