Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A union of brains and beauty, American actress Portia Doubleday was known for tackling complex roles in movies such as "Youth in Revolt" (2007) and "Her" (2013). The daughter of actors Christina Hart and Frank Doubleday, she was born and raised in Los Angeles on June 6, 1988. Belonging to a family already deeply rooted in the show business, it was no surprise she and her older sister Kaitlin pursued an acting career. Although she had already appeared in a commercial by the age of eight and made her feature film debut in "The Legend of the Mummy" (1997), her parents insisted she finish high school, graduating from the Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies. One of her earliest roles was in "Youth in Revolt," a teen comedy based on C.D. Payne's novel of the same name, where she starred opposite Michael Cera as Sheeni Saunders, whom she described as "mean" and "complex." She followed "Youth in Revolt" with roles in "Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son" (2011) and as a recurring character in the short-lived sitcom "Mr. Sunshine" (ABC 2011). Her biggest role to date came in the remake of the horror classic "Carrie" (2013), where she played the villainous popular girl Chris Hargensen, who tormented the...

A union of brains and beauty, American actress Portia Doubleday was known for tackling complex roles in movies such as "Youth in Revolt" (2007) and "Her" (2013).

Her biggest role to date came in the remake of the horror classic "Carrie" (2013), where she played the villainous popular girl Chris Hargensen, who tormented the movie's telekinetic titular character. Later that year, Doubleday joined the cast of "Her" (2013), Spike Jonze's quirky yet thoughtful science fiction romantic film. "Her" explored the romantic boundaries between a humans and machines as it told the story of a man named Theodore, who fell in love with an operating system called "Samantha." Doubleday played Isabella, a sex surrogate hired by Theodore so he could finally reach intimacy with "Samantha."
