In 2009, she appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as Emma, a captured mutant able to turn her skin into diamond. She was rescued by Logan.[3][4]

Most recently, Tahyna starred in the film Trophy Kids alongside David Gallagher and Ryan Eggold, which won Best Ensemble Cast at the Breckenridge Festival of Film.[5] In the same year Tozzi also starred in the psychological thriller Needle, which was directed by John V. Soto.[6] She does the voice acting and her likeness was used for a character named Daina in the 2011 sci-fi horror game Dead Space 2.
