Laurie got her start in The Martian Chronicles, when she played Rock Hudson's daughter, and went on to star opposite Burt Reynolds in Physical Evidence. She co-starred also Vanessa Redgrave and Julia Ormond in the mini-series Young Catherine. At the age of 26, Laurie received her most well-recognized role as informant Marita Covarrubias on the hit show The X-Files. In 2001, Laurie won critical acclaim by starring in The Majestic, opposite Jim Carrey.
Five years later, Laurie starred as police officer Cybil Bennett in Silent Hill, a live action version of the popular game character. In 2007, she appeared in The Mist, a Stephen King film. In 2008, she played agent Olivia Murray to the last season of The Shield TV Series. From 2010-2013, Laurie as Andrea to The Walking Dead TV Series. In 2014, she starred to Dumb and Dumber To, alongside Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels and Kathleen Turner.
Laurie was hired by director Christophe Gans to star in Silent Hill in 2005. According to Gans, he felt her hips looked manly, and so thought she would make a great police officer character. Initially, Laurie cried when she learned she would have to chop off most of her blonde hair, but Gans comforted her by telling her she was his "White Wolf" character.
Laurie most enjoyed filming a scene in which Cybil fights a group of fanatical cultists, even though she had to go to the hospital due to a hand injury sustained during filming.
