Trachtenberg's film career began in 1996 with the title role in Harriet the Spy.
During this time, she also began a recurring role in season two of the television series The Adventures of Pete & Pete, of which she later became a regular. In the summer of 2000, she took on the role of Dawn Summers in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, remaining in the role until the show ended in 2003.
Buffy had lots of dramas to contend with; her best friend was a witch, another one fancied her, she discovered a long-lost sister, a nightmare roommate, a doppelgänger, and don't get us started on the time when she lost her voice.
The story of a regular girl who just so happens to be blessed with superpowers that enable her to seek out and destroy evil powers (which, incidentally, are rampant in her high school/town of Sunnydale) really SPOKE to us, you know?
But don’t expect her to do a Buffy reboot anytime soon — as she just told 5.
