    Teresa’s mother is a strict catholic, whilst her father is an atheist. She was raised a catholic and attended private catholic school, Mercedes College in her hometown of Adelaide.

    Before her acting breakthrough in 2:37, Teresa worked at fast food establishment Hungry Jack’s (Rundle Mall), and clothing retailers Supré, Mambo Australia, and Cotton On.

    Before 2:37 director Murali K. Thalluri discovered Teresa’s headshot on an acting agency website, she was working weekends for them dressed as various characters including Bugs Bunny, Strawberry Shortcake, a Christmas fairy and one of Santa’s little helpers. Teresa met with the 18-year-old director and she was cast in the film. Filming took place in her hometown of Adelaide in 2004 and the low budget production meant that she did her own hair and make-up during the shoot and also had a large input over her character’s scenes. The project screened at Cannes Film Festival in 2006 to critical acclaim, and Teresa has continually credited Thalluri and the film for kick-starting her career. She was nominated by the Australian Film Institute for Best Lead Actress for her role as Melody, a troubled teenager who falls pregnant after being raped by her own brother.

    Shortly after moving to Los Angeles, she was cast in Jumper alongside Tom Sturridge. Then, just two weeks before production was set to begin, their roles were rewritten for older, more high-profile actors. They were replaced by Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson. Teresa has admitted she was so distraught that she returned home to Adelaide to pursue a different career. She was later convinced to give Hollywood another shot by her agent

    Was initially turned down for the role of Violet Nottingham in Bedtime Stories, being told she wasn’t “Paris Hilton enough” in her audition. Several weeks later, she received a call asking her to meet with Adam Sandler, who was convinced she was right for the part.

    Shortly before the release of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Teresa returned to her former high school, Mercedes College to teach a drama class. She ran scenes from the film with students, and three weeks later, they attended a screening of the film.
