Career

Jow, at the ripe young age of 6, appeared on Barney and Dellaventura, but her acting career took off when she landed the role of Geena Fabiano in the hit Nickelodeon tv series Unfabulous alongside Emma Roberts. Geena was Addie Singer's diva best friend, obsessed with fashion and designing her own clothes. The teen sitcom lasted three seasons and earned Jow several Young Artist Award nominations.

Since the shows ending in 2007, Jow has appeared in Bratz:The Movie as Quinn and has guest starred on Wizards of Waverly Place, portraying the role of famous actress, Ruby Donahue. In 2008 she participated as a guest on The Young and the Restless as Hannah, and in 2009 she portrayed "Look-alike Carly" on iCarly, another popular series on Nickelodeon. That same year she acted in The Secret Life of the American Teenager as Gail and Disney show Hannah Montana as Rachel. She also made a cameo in the 2009 movie Aliens in the Attic.

In 2010, Jow secured her spot in the hearts of all teenage girls when she appeared in the first season of The Vampire Diaries (The CW) alongside (Nina Dobrev), (Paul Wesley) and (Ian Somerhalder). She played the part of Anna, a vampire that seems to have evil intentions, but just wanted to set her mother free. She tries to use Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) to approach the Salvatore brothers and Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), but ends up falling for him. Anna is reunited with her mother for a short time before her mother is ultimately killed. In the season finale, she tells Jeremy that she plans to leave, and gives him a vial of her blood so that he can become a vampire and join her. The first season ends with Anna attempting to protect Jeremy and the citizens of Mystic Falls from an imminent vampire attack when she is captured and killed by Jeremy's uncle, John (David Anders).

Jow appeared in the 2010 ABC movie You're So Cupid! as Megan, and played Alice Cantwell, the best friend of Christy Lee (Brenda Song), in the 2010 film The Social Network. She also guest starred in an episode of the TNT television series Leverage, which also starred comedian Bill Engvall.
