She had a penchant for doing supernatural thrillers and fantasy films. Jumanji was one such fantasy movie.
Her first forays into the mainstream cinema came with Spiderman opposite Tommy Maguire in 2002. She continued her role in Spiderman 2 and Spiderman 3 as well.
Kirsten is an accomplished singer having made her debut in ‘Get over it’. She has appeared in several music videos subsequently.
