In the 2005 Grand Jury Prize Sundance Film Festival nominee Pretty Persuasion, a black comedy/satirical focusing on themes of sexual harassment and discrimination in schools and attitudes about females in media and society, Wood played Kimberly Joyce, a manipulative, sexually active high-schooler.
One critic commented, "Wood does flip cynicism with such precise, easy rhythms and with such obvious pleasure in naughtiness that she's impossible to hate." In Down in the Valley, which was directed by David Jacobson, Wood's character, Tobe, falls in love with an older man, a cowboy who is at odds with modern society (Edward Norton).
She began acting in the 1990s, appearing in several television series, including American Gothic (1995–96) and Once and Again (1999–2002).
His turn in TV series Clubhouse was, however, short-lived after CBS cancelled it after just five episodes.
He also starred on Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life, The Sasquatch Gang, CSI: Miami, Calvin Marshall, You're So Cupid, Soul Surfer and Death and Cremation.
Wood's breakthrough movie role followed with the 2003 film Thirteen.
She played the role of Tracy Louise Freeland, one of two young teens who sink into a downward spiral of hard drugs, sex, and petty crime.
The film won the Children's Jury Award at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival.
