Jodelle Micah Ferland (born October 9, 1994) is a Canadian actress, best known for her portrayals of Sharon/Alessa in the 2006 horror film Silent Hill, Mary Jensen in the 2004 miniseries Kingdom Hospital and Bree Tanner in the 2010 film The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
Life and career
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 televisions 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 2007, she filmed the movie Case 39 opposite Renée Zellweger, however, due to a lengthy post-production, it was not released until 2010. She played Bree Tanner in the third film of the Twilight series, titled Eclipse. She has 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." She also provided the voices of the little sisters for the videogame BioShock 2, and appeared in the SyFy movie Ice Quake. Other projects include a short film titled Monster, the drama Mighty Fine, the horror film The Tall Man, Joss Whedon's The Cabin in the Woods, the TV movie Girl Fight, and Midnight Stallion. She was going to appear in the independent comedy Locked in a Garage Band, but due to a conflicting filming schedule, she had to drop out. In November 2012, she had her first starring role in a comedy, in Home Alone: The Holiday Heist as Alexis Baxter.
Upcoming projects include Steel & Stilettos, the international thriller 400 Boys from British director Alastair Paton, a short film titled The Goodbye Girl, a film by Robbie Bryan titled Black Hat, and a film by Mike Le Han titled The Peppercorn Chronicles, based on Mrs. Peppercorn’s Magical Reading Room.
