During 2008, she continued pursuing auditions and acted in several local commercials for Newport Aquarium[8] and made a short appearance as an Italian girl in the hit film Angels & Demons.[9]

Bravo acted in two short films, Lost Sheep (or The Cafeteria) and Washed Up; and in the Nickelodeon television series, Big Time Rush and the Fox television series, Red Band Society. Bravo is also a voice actress; she has provided the voice of Giselita in the Open Season franchise. She has also done voice work in Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown, Special Agent Oso, and The Penguins of Madagascar.
