  Biography  

 life and career
Doubleday was born and raised in Los Angeles, the daughter of Christina Hart and Frank Doubleday. She grew up in a show business family: her parents are former professional actors, and her older sister, Kaitlin, is also an actress. Her mother now works in the entertainment industry as a writer, and also produces plays. Doubleday attended the Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies, a magnet school in west Los Angeles.

Doubleday first appeared in a commercial for Goldfish crackers at the age of eight, and had a small role in the film Legend of the Mummy . Her parents insisted that she finish high school before pursuing a career in acting. Doubleday was cast in the pilot episode of United States of Tara, a television series created by Diablo Cody. Doubleday played 15-year-old Kate, the daughter of Toni Collette's character. Doubleday was replaced however, when the series' creative team chose to go in a different direction with the character. She appeared in the short film "18" in 2009, about a girl dealing with the end of her mother's life.

Doubleday starred opposite Michael Cera in the teen comedy Youth in Revolt , based on the 1993 novel of the same name by C. D. Payne. Doubleday described her character as "mean" and "really complex" to the Los Angeles Times. She plays Sheeni Saunders, an imaginative girl with a dreary life who meets Nick Twisp while on a family vacation. The film, directed by Miguel Arteta, premiered at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.

As of January 2010, Doubleday studies psychology in college and was considering pre-med. She described herself as a "tomboy" to the Los Angeles Times; Doubleday played soccer for twelve years. She is working on the film Touchback, based on an award winning short film, and is working on another short with actor Alex Frost, directed by Marvin Jarrett .

Doubleday appeared regularly in the ABC network comedy Mr. Sunshine, a midseason replacement for the 2010–11 season.
