Bio

Mae Whitman is an American actress best known for her television roles as Grace in State of Grace, as Ann Veal in Arrested Development and as Amber Holt in Parenthood.

Whitman stars opposite John Cusack in the thriller The Factory, and in the Warner Bros. comedy Spring Breakdown, with Amy Poehler, Parker Posey and Amber Tamblyn. She also played Diane Lane's daughter in Nights in Rodanthe.

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 mini-series 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 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.
