Amongst many other jobs she worked on her way to directing her first films, Carolyn briefly worked in front of the camera. While visiting the set for Fangoria, Carolyn appeared briefly as partygoer in the 2005 Spanish thriller Beneath Still Waters. She also had two small cameos in Neil Marshall's Doomsday and assisted the makeup effects designer, while writing behind-the-scenes notes for the movie. Carolyn also acted in short films I Love You (written and directed by Tristan Versluis), starring Leslie Simpson and Horrorshow. In 2009 she won roles of various sizes in A Reckoning, Red Light, Psychosis, Feral, Blood + Roses and had a cameo in a deleted scene in The Descent: Part 2. Her most notable appearance was as Pict warrior Aeron in Neil Marshall's Centurion.
A horror reporter for various magazines and websites from 2005 to 2008, Carolyn's non-fiction career culminated with the 2008 publication of It Lives Again! Horror Movies in the New Millennium. She won for this work the Silver Award in New York City on the Book of the Year Awards. She also had several short stories published in various anthologies, including in Dark Delicacies III, and The Mammoth Book of Body Horror.
In 2011, Carolyn wrote and directed two short films: "The Last Post", which premiered at Fantasia that year and toured festivals around the world; and "Hooked", which premiered on FearNet. The following year, she wrote and directed award-winning short film "The Halloween Kid". In 2013, she completed her first feature, ghost story "Soulmate", which came out in 2014. The opening scene, which depicted a graphic suicide scene, was censored in the UK by the BBFC. The movie premiered in Sitges in 2013, and went on to screen at genre festivals around the world before its release. It was generally well received, though its mix of horror, drama and gothic romance divided opinions. In 2014, she created the anthology movie "Tales of Halloween", which she co-produced with Epic Pictures. She also wrote and directed her own segment Grim Grinning Ghost. Carolyn starred also in the same film Tales of Halloween, in a supporting role, of her Husband's Neil Marshall's segment Bad Seed.
She has been married to British filmmaker Neil Marshall since 2007 although they are in the process of divorcing. She lives in Los Angeles.
