Being surrounded by actors all her life, it makes no surprise that Eden Brolin would be interested in acting. Recently, during an interview when she was sasked whether she always wanted to be an actress on not, she replied:

No, I didn’t know. I was always kind of curious about it. But you can say that about so many generations and so many different industries. It’s one of those things that feels kind of hard to avoid when that’s something you know. And yet, I grew up sort of distanced from it, so I had more of curiosity around it that sort of curated this interest in what it was to be a part of making movies and TV.

Her first acting gig was in a 2008 short film ‘X’ that was written and directed by her father. However, her first breakthrough role came in 2015 where she starred in Richard Linklater-produced indie movie ‘I Dream Too Much’. In 2016, she appeared in the crime thriller ‘Manson’s Lost Girls’. The same year, she appeared in one episode of the medical drama ‘Code Black’.

For the second season of the series, she was promoted to series regular but sadly the show was canceled after just two seasons.
