She went to Bowie High School located in her home town, and even during her teenage days, she enjoyed acting, and was a part of many drama activities. She was even featured in a one-act school play named “Wit”, which earned her several local acting awards, so it wasn’t a surprise when she enrolled at the Southern Methodist University’s Meadows School of Arts in University Park, Texas, and chose acting as her field of study. In 2005 she earned her Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts in Acting.


After graduation Featherston moved to Los Angeles, California US, to pursue her acting career. She made her acting debut in 2006 when she performed in the short horror film, “Mutation”, with co-stars John-Damon Charles and Eddie Croft, but the film wasn’t well received by the critics.

However, she had more luck with her second film, as she was cast as the star of the horror movie “Paranormal Activity”, which was filmed in 2007 but had its US theatrical release in 2009.
