Carrière
Débuts
En 1999, à l'âge de 3 ans, Abigail a lancé sa carrière en tournant dans une publicité pour la chaîne de magasins de jouets Toys "R" Us. En 2002, à l'âge de 5 ans, elle a tourné dans son premier film Signes - qui a reçu de bonnes critiques et qui a eu beaucoup de succès dans le box-office, en faisant une recette de 408 millions de dollars (340 millions d'euros) dans le monde entier. La performance d'Abigail dans ce film lui a valu de très bonnes critiques. En 2004, elle a joué dans la comédie dramatique Fashion Maman avec son frère Spencer, mais le film n'a pas eu beaucoup de succès. Cette même année, elle a eu un petit rôle dans la comédie Un mariage de princesse. En 2004, elle a joué le rôle principal dans le drame Keane. Le film a eu une sortie limitée et la recette s'élevait à seulement 394 390 dollars dans le monde entier, mais il a reçu des critiques positives, ainsi que la performance d'Abigail.


Révélation

Abigail a eu son premier grand rôle en 2006, à l'âge de 10 ans, dans la comédie dramatique Little Miss Sunshine où elle jouait le rôle d'Olive Hoover, une jeune candidate d'un concours de beauté qui est la cadette d'une famille dysfonctionnelle. Elle n'avait que 6 ans lorsqu'elle a obtenu ce rôle, soit quatre ans avant le tournage. Ses partenaires, Greg Kinnear et Alan Arkin, ont déclaré qu'ils étaient « éblouis devant son sérieux et son professionnalisme durant le tournage ». Little Miss Sunshine a eu un gros succès commercial et a fait une recette de 100 millions de dollars (79 millions d'euros). La performance d'Abigail a eu énormément de critiques positives. Grâce à ce rôle, Abigail a été nominé pour les Screen Actors Guild Awards, ainsi que pour les Oscars du cinéma dans la catégorie « Meilleur second rôle féminin » ; elle devient alors la quatrième plus jeune actrice à être nommée dans cette même catégorie.

Le 25 février 2007, à seulement 10 ans, Abigail co-présente la 79e cérémonie des Oscars avec Jaden Smith. Le 27 octobre 2007, elle a fait ses débuts au théâtre avec la pièce Right You Are (If You Think You Are) à New York. Toujours en 2007, elle figure à la huitième place dans la liste des « revenus des artistes de Young Hollywood » - ayant un revenu de 1,6 million de dollars en 2006. Elle a ensuite joué dans la comédie romantique Le Goût de la vie - où elle jouait la nièce du personnage de Catherine Zeta-Jones. Le film a globalement reçu des critiques négatives, mais il a eu un gros succès commercial avec une recette s'élevant à 92 millions de dollars (72 779 360 euros). Par la suite, elle a joué dans une autre comédie romantique Un jour, peut-être - où elle jouait le rôle de la fille d'un homme fraîchement divorcé (interprété par Ryan Reynolds). Le film a globalement reçu des critiques positives.


Confirmation

En 2008, à l'âge de 12 ans, elle a joué avec Jodie Foster dans le film fantastique australien L'Île de Nim. Le film a reçu des critiques mitigées, mais a eu un grand succès financier avec une recette de 100 millions de dollars. En 2008, elle a joué le rôle principal de la comédie dramatique Kit Kittredge : An American Girl . Le film a reçu des critiques favorables et a fait une recette de 17 millions de dollars (13 448 360 euros). La performance d'Abigail lui a valu de très bonnes critiques.

En 2009, à l'âge de 13 ans, elle a joué dans le drame Ma vie pour la tienne où elle jouait le rôle d'une jeune fille qui souhaite faire un don d'organes pour sa sœur - atteinte d'une leucémie. Au départ, les sœurs Dakota et Elle Fanning étaient pressenties pour les rôles de Kate et Anna ; cependant, Dakota a refusé de se raser la tête pour le rôle de Kate, elles ont donc été remplacé par Sofia Vassilieva et Abigail. Le film a reçu des critiques mitigées, mais a eu un grand succès dans le box-office. Toujours en 2009, Abigail a joué dans la comédie d'horreur Bienvenue à Zombieland - qui a reçu des critiques positives et qui a également eu du succès dans le box-office.

En février 2010, à l'âge de 13 ans, Abigail a joué pour la première fois à Broadway avec le rôle d'Helen Keller, une célèbre activiste sourde, muette et aveugle des années 1920, dans la pièce Miracle en Alabama. The Alliance for Inclusion in the Arts, un groupe de défense des acteurs sourds et aveugles, ont critiqué la production pour ne pas avoir pris une actrice réellement sourde, muette et aveugle pour jouer Helen Keller. L'un des producteurs, David Richenthal, a défendu leur décision en déclarant qu'ils avaient besoin d'une jeune actrice connue : « Il est d'une naïveté de croire que, de nos jours, nous pouvons vendre des tickets d'une pièce de théâtre uniquement sur le potentiel de la production pour que ce soit un grand spectacle, ou sur le potentiel d'une actrice pas connue pour que ce soit une grande performance. ». La performance d'Abigail a globalement reçu d'excellentes critiques. Cependant, les tickets ne se sont pas bien vendus et la pièce s'est arrêtée en avril 2010.

En septembre 2009, Abigail a tourné dans la ville de Des Moines, dans l'Iowa, le film Janie Jones où elle jouait le rôle-titre ; une jeune fille de 13 ans qui a été abandonné par sa mère (interprétée par Elisabeth Shue) et qui informe le célèbre rockeur, Ethan Brand (interprété par Alessandro Nivola), qu'elle est sa fille. Le film est sorti en septembre 2010, lors du festival international du film de Toronto.


Depuis 2010

En 2011, elle a doublé la voix du personnage Priscilla, une souris, dans le film d'animation Rango. Toujours en 2011, elle a joué dans la comédie romantique Happy New Year - où elle jouait le rôle d'Hailey, la fille rebelle du personnage de Sarah Jessica Parker et la petite amie du personnage de Jake T. Austin.

En 2013, elle a joué dans le thriller The Call qui a reçu des critiques mitigées. Cette même année, elle a joué dans le film d'horreur Haunter. Elle a également joué dans La Stratégie Ender, une adaptation cinématographique du roman La Stratégie Ender de l'auteur Orson Scott Card. En juillet 2012, à l'âge de 16 ans, elle a eu le rôle de Jean Fordham dans le drame Un été à Osage County aux côtés de Julia Roberts et de Meryl Streep. Le film est sorti le 27 décembre 2013 et a reçu des critiques positives.

En 2014, Abigail est à l'affiche des films : Wicked Blood, Perfect Sisters, Maggie et Final Girl.

Depuis 2015, elle est au casting de Scream Queens, série dans laquelle elle incarne Chanel #5, une jeune femme riche mais incomprise, qui assiste à une série de meurtres des plus parodiques.

On January 18, 2003, police, alerted by a frantic 911 call from a distraught pair of teenage girls, arrived at the girls' Toronto area town house to find their mother dead. It appeared the 44-year-old alcoholic, having slipped into a booze-and-pill stupor, drowned in her own bathwater. The death was ruled accidental by the authorities. In the months that followed, however, police were alerted to rumors and reports that the teenagers had been gossiping to friends about the accident. Police began piecing together rumors that suggested the teens might have had a hand in their mother's death. In fact, rather than an accident, the story that emerged portrayed the two teens as cold-blooded, premeditated killers.

Two months have passed since a mutated strain of mad cow disease mutated into "mad person disease" that became "mad zombie disease" which overran the entire United States population, turning American people into vicious zombies. Unaffected college student "Columbus" (Jesse Eisenberg) is making his way from his college dorm in Austin, Texas to Columbus, Ohio to see whether his parents are still alive. He encounters "Tallahassee" (Woody Harrelson), another survivor who is particularly violent in killing zombies. Though he does not appear to be sociable, Tallahassee reluctantly allows Columbus to travel with him. Tallahassee mentions he misses his "puppy" that was killed by zombies, as well as his affinity for Twinkies, which he actively tries to find. Survivors of the zombie epidemic have learned that it is best not to grow attached to other survivors, because they could die at any moment, so many have taken to using their city of origin as nicknames, i.e. "Columbus" is from Columbus, Ohio.
