From a young age, Brie Larson knew she wanted to act. At six years old, she informed her mom, who supported her daughter by relocating Larson and her sister to LA amidst a divorce. Larson’s first major role was playing Bob Saget’s daughter on WB’s Raising Dad. But she really broke out as Kate Gregson, the teen daughter of Toni Collette’s character in Showtime’s United States of Tara.
After starring in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and 21 Jump Street, Larson took on the ambitious character of “Ma” in Room, leading to her Oscar win for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Larson’s most famous role yet might be her Marvel Cinematic Universe character, Carol Danvers, in Captain Marvel.
