Early life[edit]

Lowndes was born in Vancouver, British Columbia[1] and attended Pacific Academy in Surrey.[2]

Growing up in Vancouver, Lowndes attended private school, which later she learned was not for her. She knew from an early age that she had a passion for singing and acting.[3] Growing up in a household where her mother was a piano teacher and her father held the teenage record for running across Canada, Lowndes knew accomplishing a goal and making her dreams come true was possible.

While Lowndes, as a young child, was notorious for singing and dancing all the time, she finally earned her first major acting opportunity in high school. Lowndes also produced much of her own music from an early age. During the summer before her senior year, Lowndes worked on a project for Showtime, and instantly knew she wanted to work on-screen one day.[4] While working on this project, Lowndes met people from LA and got representation in the entertainment industry.

After experiencing what it was like to have a real role for a production, Lowndes told her parents that she did not want to go back to high school, and instead wanted to pursue a career in acting in Los Angeles. With encouragement from her parents, Lowndes moved to LA at the age of 16 and began her career.



Lowndes made her acting debut on the 2007 television film Saving Milly as Andrea Kondracke. This was followed by a guest role on an episode of Masters of Horror, she was later cast in a recurring role on the sitcom Alice, I Think. She also made a guest appearance on Kyle XY. Her next film role was a supporting role in the Lifetime movie To Have and to Hold released in 2005, followed by a pilot called Pretty/Handsome in 2007—which did not get picked up.

In 2008, Lowndes appeared in Autopsy and The Haunting of Molly Hartley along with a recurring role in the television drama series Greek as Mandi. Lowndes also landed a recurring role in the series 90210 a spin-off of the ’90s teen drama series Beverly Hills, 90210 as Adrianna Tate-Duncan.
