Tropes invoked in her works:
- A Date with Rosie Palms: The theme of the song "Just Pretend" from her Little Blue Toothbrush EP.
- Ascended Extra: She's originally supposed to be just a minor character in The Walking Dead but she eventually becomes more prominent and eventually gets promoted to series regular up until the show's mid-Season 5 finale.
- Break the Cutie: Has a tendency to play characters with bad, bad luck.
- The Cast Show Off: Because she's a singer, the showrunners of The Walking Dead decided to make her use it.
- Classically Trained Extra: Before being cast as Beth Greene, she mainly play bit roles.
- The Danza: In her guest recurring role in The Big C.
- Dawson Casting: She played characters who are a decade younger than her (read: Beth Greene, Anna Reiniger and Jean Fordham).
- Fake Nationality: Played a Fake German in Spring Awakening.
- Hipster: A lot of her music videos have this vibe.
- Older Than They Look: Her short stature is perhaps the main reason she's prone to Dawson Casting.
- She Also Did: She's originally a theater actress before being in The Walking Dead. She also is a singer (if that's not obvious enough already).
- Star-Making Role: As Beth Greene in The Walking Dead. That being said, she gained some notice in her earlier work as (the second) Anna Reiniger in Spring Awakening.
- You All Look Familiar: She guested twice in the Law & Order franchise as two different characters.
