Early life and career

Ferland was born in Nanaimo, British Columbia,[1] the daughter of Valerie and Marc Ferland.[2] Her siblings are actress Marisha Ferland and musician Jeremy Ferland.[2]

Ferland started her career in commercials at the age of two. 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 Emmy history. She has since made guest appearances in several television series, including Stargate Atlantis, Dark Angel, 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; however, because of a lengthy post-production, it was not released until 2009.[3]

She played Bree Tanner in the third film of the Twilight series, Eclipse. She stated: "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."[4]

From 2010 to 2011, she provided voice work for the videogame BioShock 2 and its DLC, appeared in the SyFy movie Ice Quake, and starred in the Lifetime television movie Girl Fight.[5] In 2012, she appeared in the drama Mighty Fine,[6][7][8] the horror film The Tall Man,[9] Joss Whedon's The Cabin in the Woods, the stop-motion animated film ParaNorman, and had her first starring role in a comedy, in Home Alone: The Holiday Heist.[10] From 2013 to 2014, she starred in the family film Midnight Stallion,[11] the short film Monster,[12] and the crime drama film A Warden's Ransom.[13]

In 2015, she starred in the short film The Goodbye Girl[14] and the horror film The Unspoken,[15] which premiered at the Film4 Frightfest Film Festival on October 24.[16]

In 2016 she appeared in the Lifetime television movie My Daughter's Disgrace,[17][18][19] and provided the narration for the audio book Wonder Women, written by Sam Maggs.[20]

In 2017, she appeared in the comedy Bigger Fatter Liar, the sequel to the 2002 movie,[21] the horror film Neverknock,[22][23] and is set to appear in the short film Women Seen directed by Amanda Tapping.[24][25]

From 2015 to 2017, Ferland starred as Five in the SyFy series Dark Matter,[26] based on the comic book series of the same name, and in 2018, she appeared in an episode of Frankie Drake Mysteries.[27][28]

She stars as Olive in the digital series Darken: Before the Dark, a prequel to the film Darken.[29][30][31]
