The Secret Life of the American Teenager
Mondays at 8:00 p.m.
Shailene Woodley began her career at the age of five, when an agent recognized her potential and signed her on the spot. That potential has been realized as her work as Amy"\ has earned her critical acclaim from several noted critics, including LA Times critic Robert Lloyd who said of her performance, "Woodley stands out and is appealing as a kid in over her head." Entertainment Weekly named her as a Breakthrough of 2008 in their annual year-end issue after their TV critic, Ken Tucker, raved about her performance when the show premiered earlier that year.
Woodley’s first job came in 1999 when she booked a role in the MOW, "Replacing Dad." More recently she played the title character in the popular WB movie “Felicity: An American Girl Adventure,” which was produced by Julia Roberts. Prior to that she had recurring roles on “Crossing Jordan,” “The O.C.” and “Jack & Bobby,” and made guest appearances on series like “Cold Case,” “My Name is Earl,” “CSI NY” and “Close to Home.” She also had a lead role opposite Ann Margaret and Matthew Settle in the TV movie “A Place Called Home," and co-starred with William Mapother and Treat Williams in "Moola."
