Saxon Sharbino Facts
She began her professional acting career at a young age of nine and has since appeared in a number of TV shows and movies.
Her biggest role to date came in was as Amelia Robbins in the short-lived Fox drama series ‘Touch’ in 2013.
Saxon was handpicked by hundreds of actresses to play the lead role in a gritty spy pilot for FOX. In fact, she was just 12 years old at that time and secured the role despite the creators were looking for a 17-year-old girl. However, the show was later shelved.
Not long after, her hard work and patience paid off when Sharbino was booked as a series regular on the Fox hit series Touch, in which she starred alongside Kiefer Sutherland and Maria Bello.
The role went to her because the creators were pretty much impressed with her earlier audition and made a call that she would perfectly go with the character.
