Liana Liberato grew up in the port city of Galveston, Texas. Her acting debut came at the tender age of seven, when she appeared in a community production of "Galveston: The Musical." In 2005, Liberato attended a week-long summer acting camp in California. While she was there she attracted the attention of the agents at Central Artists, who were impressed by what they described as natural charisma and line delivery. That very same year Liberato made her acting debut in the television crime procedural "Cold Case" (CBS 2003-2010). Following her debut, Liberato made appearances on several other TV shows including Sons of Anarchy (FX 2008-2014), CSI: Miami (CBS 2002-2012) and "House MD" (FOX 2004-2012). In 2008 Liberato appeared in the video for "7 Things" by Miley Cyrus. Liberato's big screen debut came when she played the lead in the drama "The Last Sin Eater" (2007), about a young girl who must save her community. Liberato also starred in "Safe Harbour" (2007), a straight-to-DVD romantic drama based on a novel by Danielle Steele. In 2010 Liberato was cast alongside Catherine Keener and Clive Owen in the movie "Trust" about a young woman who is harassed by an online predator. Her performance was well-received, and she won the Silver Hugo Award for Best Actress at the 46th Chicago International Film Festival.
