AnnaSophia had a Christian upbringing, as her family was very religious. By the way, the girl became interested in acting in the church. When she was very small she performed in front of a rather large audience and decided that she would like to devote her future life to it. From the age of four, AnnaSophia was engaged in ballroom dancing and gymnastics, but when she started acting in films, she gave up these hobbies.
Robb did not go to schoolschool. She was home-schooled and learned subjects independently, under the supervision of her parents. Only the last few years, the girl began attending the Arapahoe High School, and she graduated in 2012. Two years later she entered New York University.

But the real popularity came to AnnaSophia when in 2007 the dramatic film Bridge to Terabithia was released. The film is based on the book under the same name by Katherine Paterson. It is interesting that Robb was rejected at the preliminary casting, as according to director Gabor Csupo, she was too cute for the "tomboyish" Leslie Burke. But the girl returned again and showed a deep understanding of her character’s personality, thus, she got a coveted role.
