Early life[edit] Brianne Sidonie Desaulniers was born on October 1, 1989 in Sacramento, California, the first daughter of Heather (née Edwards) and Sylvain Desaulniers.[2][3] Her parents were chiropractors who ran a practice together.[4] She has a younger sister named Raya (b. 1993). Her mother has English, Swedish, German, Welsh, and Scottish ancestry. Larson's parents divorced when she was a child, and she moved to Los Angeles with her mother and her sister. She studied acting at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco.[5][6][7] Before that she was home-schooled.[8] Her paternal grandparents, Aurèle Desaulniers and Gabrielle Marie-Therese (Chatelain) Desaulniers (1931-2015), were French-Canadians from Manitoba.[9] Growing up, Larson's first language was French.[10] Her stage name is after her matrilineal great-grandmother, Elva Josephine Larson, although she also stated on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

that she took her stage name from Kirsten Larson, an American Girl

doll she received as a child.[11][12][13] Acting career[edit] Larson's first job was performing in sketches on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.[14] Soon after, she was cast in the television series Schimmel, which never aired because its star, Robert Schimmel, was diagnosed with cancer shortly before filming was to begin.[15] After it was "on hold" for ten months, Fox canceled the show. Larson later auditioned for a new show for The WB called In Your Dreams, and landed the role of Bob Saget's character's younger daughter, Emily. The show was selected for the 2001–02 fall season, and was renamed Raising Dad. It was then canceled after 22 episodes. Larson was also cast in the pilot for the ABC sitcom Hope & Faith, but she and some other cast members were dropped after the unaired pilot.

In 2013, she also starred in Short Term 12.[21][22] She appeared as a guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson several times between 2010 and 2013.[23] In 2015, Larson played the sister of Amy Schumer's character in the film Trainwreck. She also starred in Room, a film adapted from the novel of the same name by Emma Donoghue. The film played at the Toronto
Toronto
International Film Festival, and began its theatrical release on October 16, 2015. It has received widespread critical acclaim, particularly for Larson's performance, which earned her several awards, including the Academy Award

for Best Actress as well as Golden Globe & BAFTA Awards. In 2017, Larson starred in the second installment of Legendary Studios' MonsterVerse, the fantasy-action film Kong: Skull Island, along with Samuel L. Jackson

about the first female presidential candidate in U.S. history, which she will also produce.[28] She is also set to star as Carol Danvers
Carol Danvers
/ Captain Marvel in the upcoming Marvel Studios film Captain Marvel.[29][30] Singing career[edit] Larson has launched a career as a musician, singer and songwriter, and after releasing her debut album in a major record label in 2005, she has since been performing in live concerts throughout the United States. A second album came to production and was completed but never released. Larson revealed plans to release an EP, but that also never reached the public. She did not give up on her career as a musician, but it is not known when she will release new songs.[31] Her last public appearance as a singer was in 2010, when she performed "Black Sheep", along with the band Metric in the movie Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.[32]

in 2010. She covered Metric's song "Black Sheep" for the movie, which garnered positive reviews.

Her interest in being a singer started in early 2003, when she began to promote her songs through her personal website and was already showing interest in releasing an album. The first leaked was "Go Goodbye", a song about "two great people who just aren't great together", in her own words[33] and along with "Invisible Girl", were the tracks that led Larson to sign a record deal some time after with Casablanca Records,[34] a Universal Records
Universal Records
imprint. Both songs were produced and written with the help of Michael Binikos and Craig Bartock.[35] In 2003, she leaked another track, "Not a Freak" and this time there was even a music video for it, which was available for purchase online.[36] In late spring of 2004, she removed all the songs on her website due to Casablanca's contract restrictions and was in the process of recording new songs for her first album.[37] In October of that same year, her willingness to release an album was coming closer and "She Said", the first single from her yet-to-be-released debut album at that time was available to listen via her official website[38] gaining an official release in iTunes in December[39] and was sent to radios across the country in the following month.[40] Despite having been the 99th best-selling CD single in the country in 2005, according to SoundScan and peaking at number 31 on the Billboard Hot 100
Billboard Hot 100
Single Sales, the song failed to reach the Top 40 of the most played songs in the country, receiving low airplay. She also recorded live performances for AOL Sessions on October 11, 2004.[41] Her only released album, Finally Out of P.E., went on sale in late 2005 and sold 3,500 copies in U.S.[42] Before its release, her record label released a DVD featuring "She Said" music video, the making of it and her AOL Sessions performances. The entire album was focused in teenage audiences and that became clear while she was playing in Teen People's Rock in Shop Tour, went on tour with Jesse McCartney
Jesse McCartney
and received a lot of airplay from children-oriented radios like Radio Disney and Radio KOL. The music video for "She Said", directed by Chris Applebaum,[43] showed a story about a bored fast food restaurant worker who was aiming to sing and, that way, "finding herself". She also sang "Hope Has Wings", the song from the credits of the movie Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus. A music video for the song appears as a bonus feature on the movie's DVD.[44] In 2006, she recorded a song slightly different from her previous works for the soundtrack of the Hoot movie, "Coming Around", co-written with Jacques Brautbar
Jacques Brautbar
and Rami Perlman,[45] vocalist and guitarist of a Los Angeles-based independent band. On March 1, 2006, Larson performed an acoustic set of new songs at L.A.'s famous Viper Room.[46] The songs played were "Dear Universe", "Powershift", "Stilts and the Titanic", "Superstition", a cover of Indigo Girls' "Closer to Fine" and "Falling Into History", a track from her album. From the new songs, the only one to be leaked in a studio recording was "Stilts and the Titanic", produced and co-written by Binikos. The song was made available to listen and download as a demo version in Larson's Official Myspace
Myspace
in the summer 2006. On October 22, 2008 she announced to fans in a blog published in her official Myspace
Myspace
page that she will be recording a 5 track EP with new material and will provide backing vocals for artist Caitlin Crosby's latest album.[31] The EP was announced to include a re-recorded version of "Ugly", a track from her first studio album, as well as four new songs: "Dear Universe", "Sharpen My Nails", "Arielle", and "If All Goes Well".[31] Other work[edit] Larson has written and directed two short films, titled Weighting (2011), and The Arm (2012). She has also appeared in a stage production of Our Town
Our Town
at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.[47] Larson made her directorial debut in the comedy Unicorn Store.[48] She is an advocate for sexual assault victims.[49] At the 2017 Academy Awards of Motion Pictures and Sciences, Larson presented Casey Affleck with the Best Actor award, but in light of his past sexual harassment allegations, Larson took a step back and stood with both her arms at her side during a standing ovation from the audience for Affleck.[50] Commenting on her actions, Larson told Vanity Fair, “I think that whatever it was that I did on stage kind of spoke for itself."[51] In August 2017, Larson distanced herself from the non-profit cinematheque Cinefamily
Cinefamily
after several women accused its co-founder Hadrian Belove and vice president of the board of directors Shadie Elnashai of sexual harassment and assault.[52][53] Personal life[edit] Larson has been in a relationship with musician Alex Greenwald
Alex Greenwald
since 2013.[54][55] In May 2016, Larson's rep confirmed that she and Greenwald are engaged.[56] Filmography[edit] Main article: Brie Larson
