In the course of the next several years, Cindy honed her skills through a series of further supporting roles in a variety of television and movie appearances, until to greater prominence Cindy came in 2006, when she appeared as one of the leading characters – Zoe Ravena – in the drama thriller movie “Live Once, Die Twice” which is still considered as one of her best movie performances.
