Stroup's first acting role was a guest appearance on Unfabulous.Stroup has since appeared in a number of TV shows, such as Grey's Anatomy, October Road, and True Blood.In the meantime, I’m interested to see who they will cast as Christina’s lady love, and holding out hope that Dixon will get wrapped up in his lacrosse or whatever.
That same year Jessica had a supporting role in This Christmas.
In April 2008, Stroup was cast as a series regular on 90210, a reboot of the Golden Globe Award-nominated series Beverly Hills, 90210.

On August 20, 2013 it was announced that Stroup would join The Following in season 2 as a series regular.
The film was a fast-forward sequel to The Hills Have Eyes, a remake of the 1977 movie of the same name.
Despite negative reviews from critics the film went on to gross over million worldwide.
In December 2007, announced that Stroup was cast in another horror film titled Homecoming, which follows a young woman being kidnapped by her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend.
Despite the film completing production in February 2008, it was not released until July 2009 for a limited release in selected cinemas.
