Kristen's performance in a grade school Christmas play caught the eye of an agent in audience desk. Their parents rejected the idea to bring little Kristen in front of camera, but her curiosity won them over, and at the age of eight, when her other friends still had their boards in hands for skiing, she began auditioning for film and television role.
In 2001, Kristen succeeded grabbing a minor role as a non-speaking part in the Disney TV production film "The Thirteenth Year". However, she didn't play in front of the camera again until two years later when she was chosen to take part in "The Safety of Object" ...
as a tomboy daughter of a troubled single mother played by Patricia Clarkson.
Kristen's career continued to rise when a filmmaker noticed her striking resemblance to young Jodie Foster and signed her to replace Hayden Panettiere as Jodie's diabetic daughter in a Hollywood major big screen "Panic Room" (2002). Despite the presence of such big names as Jodie, Forest Whitaker, and Patrick Bachau, she held her own assured performance that led some positive critics to compare her with other young actors at her age.
Ever since, Kristen consistently continues impressing audiences and critics, both with her performances and with her choice of projects, which frequently strayed far from kid-oriented materials offered to actors in her age group. In 2003, she appeared in another suspenseful project "Cold Creek Manor" (2003) as the daughter of Dennis Quaid and Sharon Stone. Unfortunately, the film didn't gain much attention from movie lovers.
