Early Life

Cuthbert was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the first child of Kevin and Patricia Cuthbert. Her family moved to Greenfield Park, near Montreal, learning a few words in French as a result of her surroundings.

She began her career in 1989 by modeling for various lines of children's clothing and also became a foot model. She made her first televised appearance in the horror-themed series for children, Are You Afraid of the Dark? as a young girl in the episode "The Tale of the Nightshift" (she would later become a series regular) and landed her first role in a feature film in the family drama Dancing on the Moon. She went on to star in several family-themed movies and an airplane thriller, Airspeed, and also hosted Popular Mechanics for Kids with Jay Baruchel. Cuthbert's role as host of Popular Mechanics sometimes required her to act as a foreign correspondent, and she was required to fly around the world despite her aversion to plane travel. Her reporting captured the attention of then First Lady, Hillary Clinton, who invited her to visit the White House.
