Birth Date: July 8, 1973

Age: 50 years old

Birth Place: Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Robertson began to study acting, voice, and dance at age 10. She was still in her teens when she played Tina Edison, the genius daughter, in "Maniac Mansions," a TV series about a family of inventors which aired in the USA on "The Family Channel" (1990-93). In 1992, Robertson had a co-starring role in the Canadian feature "Lapse of Memory." After being invited to Los Angeles for its screening, she decided to remain and try her luck in Hollywood. At 19 years old, she acclimated quickly and within less than a year, had played a young woman threatened by the plague in "Quiet Killer" (CBS, 1992) and a young woman threatened by a street gang in "Survive the Night" (USA Network, 1993). But it was the role of the somewhat bitchy Clare Arnold on "Beverly Hills 90210" (Fox, 1990-99), added in part to fill the void created by the departure of Shannen Doherty, that brought her attention. During her tenure on the show, the character interacted with all the major regulars: she romanced Brandon (Jason Priestley) roomed with Kelly and Donna (Jenny Garth and Tori Spelling) and had liaisons with both David and Steve (Brian Austin Greene and Ian Ziering). Her decision to leave the series coincided with the release of "Nowhere" (1997), and Robertson hoped that the film might open new avenues in her career. While her film career did not immediately rocket her into stardom, she enjoyed a steady flow of roles throughout the rest of the nineties and beyond. She starred in the Sally Field-directed project "Beautiful" in 2000 and co-starred in the teen flick "Scary Movie 2" in 2001. In 2003, Robertson starred in the independent film "XX/YY" which premiered at Sundance. Perhaps signaling a desire to take on more challenging roles, Roberston played a woman who embarks on a three-way relationship with two male college friends, only to find it haunting her ten years later. More recently, Robertson had recurring roles in "The Business" (IFC, 2006-08), "Murder in the First" (TNT, 2013-16) and "Northern Rescue" (Netflix, 2019). All the while, making films such as "A Night for Dying Tigers" (2010), "Losing Control" (2012), and "The Vatican Tapes" (2015).
