Her? That’s right, it’s time to celebrate the birthday of Ann Veal, of Roxie Richter, of none other than the awesome Mae Whitman. I knew that she was prolific – considering that she was born in 1988 and made her acting debut at age 6 – but I was not prepared for the shock of discovering that she has almost 100 credits to her name! Mae Whitman may well be one of the youngest character actors working today. On TV, she has appeared on Friends, Chicago Hope, The Wild Thornberrys, Cold Case, CSI, Johnny Bravo, Arrested Development, Ghost Whisperer, ER, Law & Order: SVU, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Criminal Minds, Family Guy, Parenthood, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. On film, she’s appeared in the movies When a Man Loves a Woman, Independence Day, Hope Floats, One Fine Day, Boogeyman 2, Nights in Rodanthe, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. She’s voiced characters in the video games Kingdom Hearts II, The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night, Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Burning Earth, and Avatar: The Last Airbender – Into the Inferno. Watch out for Mae Whitman, because next time she’ll be deadly serious next time. She turns 24 today.
