A young Jodelle Ferland

She made her movie debut at age 4 in the TV-movie Mermaid, for which she received a Daytime Emmy Award nomination, making her the youngest nominee in the award's history. She has since made guest appearances in several televisions series, including Stargate Atlantis, Dark Angel, The Collector, Stargate SG-1, Smallville and Supernatural, and has appeared in films including They and Trapped. In 2005, she starred in the Terry Gilliam drama Tideland, for which she received a Genie Award nomination in the Best Actress category. Later, she appeared in the 2006 film Silent Hill, an adaptation of the well-known video game, and had a supporting role in Good Luck Chuck for Lions Gate Entertainment. In 2006 she filmed the movie Case 39 opposite Renée Zellweger; its release date had been delayed twice before its final release date on October 1, 2010.

Jodelle admits that choosing this part was a no-brainer. "Usually I read the script before I take a role, but I haven't read this one," she explained. "It's Twilight, of course I'm going to take it."
