Akerman moved to Toronto, Canada when she was only two years old and began modeling and acting in TV commercials at the age of five. At 17, she won the Ford Supermodel of Canada search. Interest from international agents led her to spend summers in Europe modeling until she finished high school. After spending several years as a successful model, she eventually decided to stay in Toronto to pursue acting. She quickly landed a role on the Steven Spielberg television series The Others. In 2001, she flew to Los Angeles to test for the lead in a Disney feature, and although she ultimately did not land the part, the experience brought her to the West Coast where she now lives.
