In 2006 Vandervoort shot her first feature film, The Lookout, opposite Jeff Daniels, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mathew Goode and Isla Fisher. She got her big break at age 19 when she landed the lead role of Sadie Harrison on the CTV TV series Instant Star, which ran for four seasons and was extremely popular in Canada.
Vandervoort began acting at the age of 13--she had always been an entertainer, putting on shows for family and friends. But what triggered her interest in the arts was the film My Girl, which she received from her aunt at a very young age, and after watching it realized that acting was what was inside her.
Some of her other credits include CSI, The Dresden Files, Mom's Got a Date with a Vampire, Alley Cats Strike, Mutant X, Prom Queen and Twice in a Lifetime.
A tomboy for years, Vandervoort loves most sports, especially soccer, karate, basketball, tennis, gymnastics and baseball. Entering karate at age seven, she found herself with a second degree Black Belt by 16. She currently divides her time between Los Angeles and her native Canada.
