This actress provides examples of:
- Broken Bird: Her role in City and Colour music video "Fragile Bird".
- Fair Cop: Plays one in The Flash (2014) as Officer Patty Spivot.
- Gender-Blender Name: In Beauty and the Beast (2012) she plays a woman named Tyler.
- Ms. Fanservice: She works as a model as well as an actress and has no shortage of roles showing off her beauty. There's a reason the The Flash fandom sometimes refers to her as "Booty Spivot".
- Star-Making Role: Used to only have minor roles until she played Lori in Final Destination 4.
- I Want You to Meet an Old Friend of Mine: With Tony Todd in Season Two of The Flash (2014); they had previously worked together in Final Destination 4.
- What Could Have Been:
- She was one of the actresses considered to play the role of Laurel Lance on Arrow when that show was still being conceptualized.
- She was originally hired to be a recurring character throughout the entire Season 2 of The Flash (2014). The actress then signed on for a role in another series, but under conditions that would allow her to make both series without conflict in the schedule. However, upon discovering this, showrunner Andrew Kreisberg (who would be fired two years later in disgrace because of accusations of sexual harassment on set) was furious and made the actress leave at the end of the first half of season 2.
