Larson was born in Sacramento, California,
and decided to be an actress when she was six years old and was one of
the youngest students of the American Conservatory Theater. She moved to
Los Angeles in 1998, right before her 9th birthday and met lots of
agents, but decided to go with Cindy Osbrink, who she has been with for
six years. Larson's first job was doing sketches on "The Tonight Show
with Jay Leno" and soon after, was cast in two back-to-back television
series, Schimmel which was announced but never aired, because right
before filming, Robert Schimmel was diagnosed with cancer. After being
"on hold" for ten months, Fox cancelled the show.
Three weeks later she auditioned for a new
show on the WB, which at the time was called "In Your Dreams", Larson
got the part of Emily (the youngest daughter to Bob Saget's character)
and the show was picked up for the 2001-2002 fall season and was renamed
"Raising Dad". The show, however, was cancelled late into the season, so
she was not able to audition for a new series until next pilot season.
Larson was also cast in the pilot for the ABC sitcom, "Hope and Faith",
but she and some of the other cast were dropped.
In July 2004, she co-starred with a large
cast of teen actors in the film Sleepover, playing the vicious popular
girl Liz. Larson's latest role is in the film Hoot, opposite Logan
Lerman and Cody Linley. The film opened on May 5, 2006.
After work in music projects and record
some tracks, like "Not A Freak" and "Go, Goodbye" in the fall 2003,
Michael Binikos produced her demo that got Larson signed to Tommy
Mottola and Casablanca Records, including "Invisible Girl", which Larson
had written when she was only 12.
In late 2004, her first single, "She Said",
was announced and went to radio in January 2005. The video for the song
was filmed on January 9, 2005 and was supposed to be shot at the beach,
but it rained so they filmed it at a fast food restaurant. The song
debuted at #30 on Radio Disney and the video was featured on MTV's Total
Request Live as a PreRL on April 4th. The video made the #16 spot on the
Total Request Live countdown and was an MTV regular. The song also
peaked at #69 on the Mediabase charts.
In the summer of 2005, Larson toured with
Hollywood recording artist Jesse McCartney, and made a concert at KISS
FM for more than 20,000 people. Towards the end of the summer, Larson
also joined the Teen People's Rock'n'Shop Tour.
She later released a DVD, called "Finally
Out Of P.E. - The DVD", which contained Larson's live Sessions @ AOL
performances of "She Said", "Finally Out of P.E.", "Done With Like", an
exclusive interview, her new video "She Said", behind the scenes
footage, and a sneak preview of Larson's intended second single,
"Whatever". The song was announced to be her second single and released
to Radio Disney, but was canceled.
Larson released a follow-up single, "Life
After You". The song debuted on AOL's Kids Online on June 27th, but the
official release date for the single was July 5th. Larson also sings the
end credit track in the movie "Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus". A music
video featuring Larson performing the song appears as a bonus feature on
the movie's DVD. Her debut album, "Finally Out Of P.E.", was released on
October 18th. The album, which had several changes in its release date,
has sold 5,500 copies in United States.
In 2006, Larson wrote and produced new
music, including a song in "Hoot" OST, "Coming Around". The soundtrack
entered Billboard's Hot 200 Albums. She is now writing new songs and
recording her sophomore studio album, which is due for release by
Universal Records at some point in the fall 2006. there are also some
unconfirmed tracks called "Paste on Paste" "Superstision" "Dear,
Universe" and more. Also the album release slate is either late 2006 or
early 2007, but those reports still remain unconfirmed.
