One of Cox's earliest roles was the Childlike Empress in the 1994 film The NeverEnding Story III. She played Diana, Princess of Wales in Princess in Love by David Greene, a film released in 1996 based upon the publication by Anna Pasternak.[2] Cox played the character Sophie Aronnax in a remake of 20,000 Leagues under the Sea in 1997, and in 1999 she appeared as Giulietta in the film adaptation of Alegría.
