She also appeared in major cinematic movie releases Man About Town with Ben Affleck and Rebecca Romijn, and Blade:Trinity with Wesley Snipes.
In 2006, she starred in the music video for the Michael Bublé song "Save the Last Dance for Me". That year also saw her land her most successful role to date, when she was cast as Deputy Jo Lupo in Eureka, a Syfy series which was broadcast between 2006 and 2012. Cerra was one of the stars of the ensemble cast, with her character playing an integral role throughout the series five seasons.
Cerra's face and body were used as the model for the character of Ashley Williams for the Mass Effect video game franchise.
