3. She was discovered by a Los Angeles-based agent when she was 12. Growing up in Greenville, South Carolina, Britt appeared in various performances at the Greenville Little Theater. A Hollywood agent discovered her at a convention in Hilton Head, and Britt subsequently started flying to and from L.A. to audition for various roles.
