This actress provides examples of:
- Boyish Short Hair: For her role in Restless, her hair was cut to a pixie style, and had that look when she attended the premier of Alice in Wonderland (2010).
- Fake Nationality: Her roles tend to be a Fake American or a Fake Brit. Averted in Tracks, where she gets to use her natural accent.
- Protagonist Title: She played the titular Alice in Wonderland (2010) and Jane Eyre. Stoker also counts since it's a Family Title movie.
- Star-Making Role: Playing Alice Kingsleigh gave her a boost.
- She also got some notice a little earlier on for In Treatment, where she, as an elder teenager, managed to hold her own against Gabriel Byrne.
