Career[edit]

In 2006, Bowden scored her first acting role in a two-episode arc on the ABC long-time running daytime soap opera television series One Life to Live as Britney.[1] She has since guest starred on shows such as Law & Order: SVU and Ugly Betty. Bowden's breakthrough role came when she was cast as a recurring character on the Emmy Award winning Comedy television series 30 Rock, which premiered on October 11, 2006 on NBC. She portrayed the sexy and incompetent assistant Cerie. She signed on as a regular for the show's second season in 2007. The show's final episode aired in January 2013, in total consisting of 7 seasons.[2] She also appeared in "Dance, Dance" a music video from American rock band Fall Out Boy.

In 2008, Bowden made her film debut in the Summit Entertainment raunchy comedy Sex Drive, released to theaters on October 17, 2008. The following year, Bowden starred in two low-budget straight-to-DVD projects The Shortcut and Ratko: The Dictator's Son a film part of the National Lampoon Inc. film trilogy. In 2010 Bowden starred in the widely acclaimed horror-comedy film Tucker & Dale vs Evil as Allison. The film was released in a limited release and grossed over $4,749,516 and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The film holds a 'fresh' rating of 85% on Rotten Tomatoes.

In April 2011, Bowden was voted as Esquire Magazine's Sexiest Woman Alive.[3] She was also the face of the Jordache television campaign that made its premiere in September 2011. In April 2011, Universal Pictures announced that Bowden was cast as the role of Mia, an "L.A. party girl type", and girlfriend to Chris Klein's character, in the fourth installment of the American Pie film trilogy, American Reunion.[4] The film was released on April 5, 2012 to mixed reviews but financial success. Also in 2012, Bowden appeared in Piranha 3DD, which was panned by critics[5] and the horror movie Hold Your Breath which received a limited theatrical release before being released to DVD.

Bowden is set to star in Nurse 3D, which is expected to be released in 2013. She guested in American rock band Panic! at the Disco's music video for "Miss Jackson".
