Born: Mae Margaret Whitman June 9, 1988 in Los Angeles, California, USA Daughter of actress Pat Musick and Jeffrey Whitman. Got her start in acting aged three when she impressed casting directors by interrupting her mum's audition and proceeding to tell her off because she was bored. The casting directors were so impressed with her that one, to get a reaction, observed her white-and-purple outfit and said, "My, what a pretty yellow dress you're wearing." Whitman looked back at him and replied, "What are you, some kind of knucklehead?" Is an only child. Has played Bill Pullman's daughter twice: in Independence Day (1996) as Patricia Whitmore and in Merry Christmas, George Bailey (1997) (TV) as Zuzu Bailey. Was originally cast as Becca Sommers in the TV series "Bionic Woman" (2007), but was released and replaced with Lucy Hale. Was the voice of the British Telecom speaking clock for 3 months from the 26th October 2008 as the voice of Tinker Bell as part of a promotional tie in for the film. She's the first voice actress ever to provide the voice of Tinker Bell in the Disney movie Tinker Bell (2008) (V) since Tinker Bell doesn't speak in any of the past Disney related programs.
