Britt Robertson Lands Key Role in George Clooney's 'Tomorrowland'

Britt Robertson
<p> Robertson, who stars in the CW&#39;s new supernatural series <em>The Secret Circle,</em>&nbsp;says she appreciates the buzz that comes with the show. &quot;We&#39;re working with <strong>Kevin Williamson, </strong>who did <em>The Vampire Diaries. </em>It has a sort of cult following, and I think because of that, and since we are sort of its sister show, people are excited for <em>The Secret Circle. </em>I guess we&#39;re just hoping that we don&#39;t let people down.&quot;</p>   |   Joe Pugliese
