Since she was a toddler, Brooklynn Proulx has shown her interest in acting as she always love having her picture taken, making up songs, and dancing.

She followed it up with two films roles in 2005. She played the 4-year-old Jenny in Ang Lee's Academy Award-winning romantic-drama film starring Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Williams, "Brokeback Mountain," and co-starred with JR Bourne and Caroline Cave in David Christensen's film adaptation of Fred Leebron's novel, "Six Figures."

She was also spotted as a guest in the pilot episode of TNT crime drama series starring Academy Award-winner Holly Hunter in her first TV series, "Saving Grace."

Returning to the wide screen, Brooklyn was cast to play Mary James, the only daughter of American outlaw Jesse James (played by Brad Pitt) and his wife Zee James (portrayed by Mary-Louise Parker), in director Andrew Dominik's Western drama film adapted from Ron Hansen's 1983 novel, "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" (2007; also starring Casey Affleck, Sam Shepard, and Sam Rockwell).

She went on to co-star with Julia Roberts and Ryan Reynolds in writer/director Dennis Lee's dramatic film "Fireflies in the Garden," which premiered at the 2008 Berlin International Film Festival, and played Paul Walker and Piper Perabo's daughter Katie in John Glenn's dramatic thriller film "The Lazarus Project" (2008).
