Her early TV and Film work included several independed productions (most notably with Anthony Simcoe) as well a guest star spot on popular Australian series Water Rats and a role in Australian Movie production titled Day of the Roses.
However, her huge internet presence, and large following of fans can be attributed to her role as Chiana on the cult sci-fi series called Farscape.
