Tropes associated with her work include:
- But Not Too Black: She is light-skinned with pale eyes due to her mixed ancestry, being often cast as the sole woman of color in a work. Or sometimes, the sole person of color period.
- Fake American: She has rarely played Canadians or South Africans. Most roles she's had by far have been playing Americans.
- Playing Against Type: She's usually played heroic or at least neutral characters, who are generally quite mild-mannered. Her role as Ax-Crazy psycho lesbian tattooed crook Erika on Persons Unknown was therefore quite different from her roles before or since. She also played a dirty cop on Da Vinci's Inquest
- Twofer Token Minority: She is frequently the only person of color in a work's cast. Or at least the only woman of color, in either case falling into this given that she's mixed race and female.
