CareerEdit

Thorpe's first professional role was at the Canyon Lake Theatre as Wendy in Peter Pan.[1] Thorpe performed at the Pacific Light Opera and local community theaters in Orange County.[citation needed]

Thorpe was first discovered in a workshop production of Assassins, leading to a role in the 2000 film The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. That same year, Thorpe joined the cast of the daily soap opera The Young and the Restless, playing Rianna Miner. Thorpe moved from there to the soap opera Days of Our Lives, in July 2002. She left that series in November 2003, when her character was believed to have been murdered by the Salem Stalker. She returned, her character having avoided death, in guest appearances on the show in 2004 and 2005.[2]

Thorpe also appeared in the television series Forsaken and Pretty Cool. In 2003, she made a cameo appearance as herself on an episode of Friends, and appeared as Jennifer in American Wedding. In 2004, she appeared in the third episode of House as the patient's young, dating fiancée.

Thorpe stepped back from screen acting after two appearances in 2007, as Linda Murphy in the independent film The Man from Earth and as Kyla Bradley in Nightmare City 2035. She returned briefly in 2016, making an appearance in the independent film The Unlikely's.
