Her professional acting career began as a teenager, after finding success in modeling, and later got into acting, eventually appearing in the films Ghouls, In The Mix and Come Away Home and on the television programs CSI: NY, The OC, Anger Management and The Glades. Acting aside, Renton is a noted philanthropist and fundraiser within the animal rights world.
