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.[1] 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.
