She scored a double whammy in 1999 with appearances in the teen-friendly films Never Been Kissed and Idle Hands, and later that year James Cameron cast her as the title lead in his TV project Dark Angel. Since then she has worked mostly in feature films, usually playing a tough-but-vulnerable babe, as in Honey (2003, with Lil’ Romeo) and in the film version of Frank Miller‘s Sin City (2005, with Bruce Willis) and its sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014).

She played a cop with a secret past in the TV series L.A.’s Finest (2019-20).
