Stefanie Scott was an up-and-coming actress who made waves in Hollywood in 2015 with her appearance in the third installment of a successful horror franchise, "Insidious: Chapter 3" (2015). Born in Chicago and raised in Florida, Scott started auditioning for film and TV roles while still a pre-teen. She landed her first TV guest spot at the age of 12 on the NBC action-comedy series "Chuck" (NBC, 2007-12). The TV roles soon began to pour in and over the next few years she nabbed parts on "The New Adventures of Old Christine" (CBS, 2006-2010) and "Sons of Tucson" (Fox, 2010), among various others. Scott nabbed her very first film role in 2010 in the Rob Reiner-directed comedy-drama "Flipped," and the following year played a younger version of the lead character played by Natalie Portman in romantic comedy "No Strings Attached" (2011). Scott continued landing film and TV roles over the next few years, including a plum role as the voice of Moppet Girl in 2012's animation blockbuster "Wreck-It Ralph." Scott's biggest break came in 2011 when she landed the recurring role of Lexi Reed on the Disney Channel's "A.N.T. Farm" (2011-14). After "A.N.T. Farm" ended in 2014, Scott starred in "Insidious: Chapter 3" (2015), her highest-profile movie role to date.
