->''"[[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Her?]]"''

Mae Whitman is an American actress born on June 9, 1988, in California to voice artist PatMusick. Whitman started her career as a toddler - she was discovered after interrupting Musick while the latter was auditioning for a role. She played the daughter of Creator/MegRyan in ''WhenAManLovesAWoman'', the President's daughter in ''Film/IndependenceDay'', Creator/GeorgeClooney's daughter in ''OneFineDay'', and Creator/SandraBullock's daughter in ''Film/HopeFloats''. She also had recurring parts in ''Series/ChicagoHope'' and ''Series/{{JAG}}''.

Illustrating the tendency of child stars to make the jump to voice acting later in their careers, Mae has done several well-known character voices, beginning with Lil' Suzy in ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo''.

She [[TheOtherDarrin replaced]] Christy Carlson Romano as the voice of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'''s Yuffie. She is also the voice of Agent Xero in ''WesternAnimation/TheModifyers'', Katara in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Rose in ''AmericanDragonJakeLong'', Batgirl in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'', Wonder Girl on ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', April O' Neill in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' and is the first actress to give a voice to Disney's iconic pixie Tinkerbell.

She also had a RecurringCharacter role as "Ann Veal", TheNondescript girlfriend of George Michael, in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment''[[note]]Which may be a bit of a CastingGag, since George Michael's other "love interest" is played by Creator/AliaShawkat. Whitman and Shawkat starred in the Fox/ABC Family series ''Series/StateOfGrace''[[/note]]. She also plays Roxy Richter in ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'' where most of her screen time, oddly enough, is spent trying to kill Creator/MichaelCera.

She currently is playing the role of Amber Braverman, TroubledButCute daughter of Sarah Braverman in the NBC series ''Series/{{Parenthood}}''. She is Mary Elizabeth in ''Literature/ThePerksOfBeingAWallflower''.
