Early life

Pope started her career with several small roles, such as Disturbing Behavior, Snow Day, and Night Man, before being cast as Sam McPherson on the WB's high-school drama Popular. After the show ended, Pope had several roles in film and television, including The Glass House, Jeff Probst's Finder's Fee, and Orange County.
