Family Name

Many of you might be curious about Robb’s name. She was named after her maternal great-grandmother (Anna Sophie) and her paternal grandmother (Anna Marie). Her parents joined the name and took out the space between them. Unusual? Yes. But awesome? Double yes.

American Vintage

Early in her career, Robb played Victorian orphan Samantha Parkington in “Samantha: An American Girl Holiday” made-for-TV movie. American Girl has been around since 1986, and the beloved character of Samantha was retired in 2008. This means that Robb played an iconic retro childhood heroine. (If you know and love Samantha, then we love you.)
