She has also completed assignments as a movie actress in Canada and made a short appearance as Lyle’s girlfriend in the 2003 movie The Italian Job.
Her first starring role was in School for Seduction, a 2004 film – she received positive reviews for her role, “Seduction offers a few twists on the rapidly degenerating format, not the least of which is the comely Brook in the lead role.” In 2004 she also played character Nikki Morris in the video game Need for Speed Underground 2, alongside Brooke Burke. In 2005 she appeared in the Philippe Vidal film House of 9, a thriller about nine seemingly unconnected strangers captured and locked in a house together.

She caused a minor controversy in 2006 opposite Juan Pablo Di Pace whilst in the film Survival Island (also known as Three), also co-starring Billy Zane, who would later become her fiancé.
