Mae Whitman stars in NBC's "Parenthood" as Amber Holt, a rebellious and willful teen whose only interest at present is her wanna-be-rockstar boyfriend. It's all too familiar territory for Sarah, who doesn't want to see her daughter make the same mistakes she made years ago. Deep down, Amber wants the clean slate her mom is trying to give her. Unfortunately, Amber's wild-child reputation is not so easily left behind, and her mistakes continue to haunt her even as she tries to start over.

Mae Whitman recently starred in "Scott Pilgrim Versus The World," the film adaptation of the underground graphic novel sensation. She also stars opposite John Cusack in the thriller "The Factory," the Warner Bros. comedy "Spring Breakdown," with Amy Poehler, Parker Posey and Amber Tamblyn, and "Nights in Rodanthe" as Diane Lane's daughter.

When Whitman was three-and-a-half, she inadvertently wandered into her mother's commercial audition — and booked the job. A year later she was cast in her first feature film, "When a Man Loves a Woman," starring Meg Ryan and Andy Garcia, followed by the comedy "Bye Bye Love," with Randy Quaid, Paul Reiser, and Amy Brenneman.

Next came the record-breaking "Independence Day," appearing as the President's daughter. "One Fine Day" was Whitman's fourth feature film (she played George Clooney's daughter). Robert Altman and Kenneth Branagh introduced her to improvisation with "The Gingerbread Man." In "Hope Floats" she worked alongside Sandra Bullock, Gena Rowlands and Harry Connick, Jr. Next came a trio of independents: the award-winning "American Rhapsody" with Scarlett Johansson, Henry Jaglom's "Going Shopping," and the festival hit "Bondage" with lleana Douglas and Michael Angarano.

Whitman continued to show her versatility with the suspense/horror picture "Boogeyman 2," and let her comedic chops shine as Ann Veal on the Emmy-winning "Arrested Development."

Whitman traveled to New Orleans to shoot the six-part miniseries "Thief" with Andre Braugher for FX. She has guest-starred on "Grey's Anatomy," "Justice," "Desperate Housewives," "Cold Case," "Presidio Med," "Century City," "Judging Amy," "Friends," "Providence," "Early Edition," and PBS's acclaimed televised radio play, "Merry Christmas, George Bailey." Other TV series credits include the title role in "State of Grace," and recurring roles in "Chicago Hope," "JAG" and "In Treatment."

Whitman's made-for-television movie appearances include "Death In Paradise," "The Judds," "Degree of Guilt," "Invisible Child," "After Jimmy," and two for Hallmark: "A Season for Miracles," and "Love's Abiding Joy."

Whitman's love for cartoons continues as she voices the character of Katara in Nickelodeon's wildly successful Anime-style series, "Avatar." For Disney, she plays both Rose and her alter ego, Huntsgirl, on "American Dragon," and co-starred with Haley-Joel Osment as the voice of Shanti in "Jungle Book 2."

Whitman currently resides in Los Angeles.
