Life and career[edit]

Ferland was born in Nanaimo, British Columbia, the daughter of Valerie and Marc Ferland.[1] Her siblings are actress Marisha Ferland and musician Jeremy Ferland.[1]

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 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."[2]

From 2010 to 2011, she provided voice work for the videogame BioShock 2 and its DLC, appeared in the SyFy movie Ice Quake, and starred in the Lifetime movie Girl Fight.[3]

In 2012, she appeared in the drama Mighty Fine,[4][5][6] the horror film The Tall Man,[7] Joss Whedon's The Cabin in the Woods, the stop-motion animated film ParaNorman, and had her first starring role in a comedy, in Home Alone: The Holiday Heist.[8]

In 2013, she starred in the family film Midnight Stallion,[9] and the short film Monster.[10]

Most recently, she starred in the crime drama A Warden's Ransom,[11] the short film The Goodbye Girl,[12] and the horror film The Haunting of Briar House[13] (originally titled The Unspoken) which premiered at the Film4 Frightfest Film Festival on October 24.[14]

Since June 2015, she has starred as Five in the SyFy series Dark Matter,[15] based on the comic book series of the same name.
