Nurturing an impressive body of work that encompasses film, television and music, Stefanie Scott is one of Hollywood's most promising young talents. She recently wrapped production on a starring role opposite Anna Camp and Sam Page in the independent thriller Caught and a supporting role in the independent drama Life at These Speeds, alongside Liana Liberato, Sam Rockwell, Melanie Lynskey, and Billy Crudup. Next summer, Scott will take on the lead role of "Alex" in Jason Stone's (This is the End) independent feature First Light. The film follows two teenagers dealing with the aftermath of a chemical plant leak.

Scott will next be seen as the lead in Focus Features and Blumhouse Productions' Insidious: Chapter 3, the third installment to the hit horror film franchise. The film, which serves as prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert Family, hits theaters on June 5, 2015. Next fall, she will star as "Kimber Benton," the band's lead keyboardist, in Universal Pictures' highly anticipated feature film Jem and the Holograms. Based on Hasbro's cult 1980's animated series, the musical fantasy, directed by Jon Chu and produced by Scooter Braun, re imagines Jem amid the current hyper linked social media era in a story of a small-town girl going from underground video sensation to global superstar with her three sisters. Jem and the Holograms will hit theaters October 23, 2015.

Following her best known starring role as "Lexi Reed" on Disney Channel's "A.N.T. Farm," Scott segued into guest-arc on NBC's long running series "Law & Order: SVU" and a regular part in the CBS/Nikki Toscano pilot "Red Zone." Her other television credits include a lead role in the Disney Channel original movie "Frenemies" alongside Bella Thorne and Zendaya and guest starring roles on "Jessie," "The New Adventures of Old Christine," and "Chuck." On the big screen Scott has lent her voice to the Oscar-nominated animated adventure Wreck-It Ralph, starred in Rob Reiner's Flipped based on the novel by Wendelin Van Draanen and co-starred as young "Emma," to Natalie Portman's "Emma" in Paramount Pictures' No Strings Attached.

In 2013, Scott, who has always had a passion for music, joined forces with musician Spencer Sutherland for their duet cover of "Everything Has Changed," originally performed by Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran. The cover garnered national attention, including USA Today adding Scott to the list of breakout multi-talented actresses and singers alongside Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Selena Gomez. In April 2014, she released her first original single "I Don't Wanna Let You Go," which she co-wrote with British singer/songwriter Neon Hitch.
