Diana Rowan (the same casting agent who discovered Anna Paquin, Keisha Castle-Hughes, and Jonathan Taylor Thomas) discovered Barclay in a school play and cast her as Celia in 2004's In My Father's Den, that rose the actress to prominence. For that film, Barclay won Most Promising Newcomer at the 2005 British Independent Film Awards. She followed by moving to Australia – while continuing part-time with her degree in English and gender studies at the University of Auckland – for a role in the critically acclaimed 2006 black comedy Suburban Mayhem directed by Paul Goldman, for which she collected an AFI Award for Best Actress.
