Life and career[edit]

Scott was born in Metairie, Louisiana, but grew up in Charleston, South Carolina.[1] She has dyslexia.[1] She began her career as a child model, and made her screen debut in a minor role as Gigolo Jane in A.I.

In 2002 Scott was cast as Helena Kyle/The Huntress on The WB television drama series Birds of Prey. The series premiered October 9, 2002.

She later had supporting roles in number of films, including Walking Tall (2004), Into the Blue (2005), The Kingdom (2007), Strange Wilderness (2008), and 12 Rounds (2009). Scott starred as series regular on CBS series Jericho as Emily Sullivan. The show ran from September 20, 2006 through March 25, 2008. It was initially canceled after its first full season due to poor ratings. While a fan campaign was able to convince the network to bring the show back for a seven-episode second season, it was canceled for a second time after that run. She later guest-starred in several shows, including CSI: Miami, and NCIS.[3] She also voiced as Maria of 2013 video game The Last of Us.
