After college, she landed small television and film roles, appearing in the Discovery Channel’s Accident Investigator, and in the 2008 Oscar-nominated film Frozen River, starring Melissa Leo and the late Misty Upham. Brittany now plays a lead role on Mohawk Girls, as the the uptight, secretly sexy Zoe. Mohawk Girls will be filming its fifth season this summer.
