Life and CareerEdit
Swan was born in West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Her father, Scott Swan, is a Canadian theatre director and actor who runs an acting studio on the north shore.
Swan was featured in the Theory of a Deadman video So Happy (2008), appeared twice on Smallville as Zatanna Zatara, and played the pagan god Veritas in a season-6 episode of Supernatural. She began her big-screen acting career in the 2009 rom-com The Break-Up Artist, and appeared as a Siren in TRON: Legacy in 2010.
From 2011 to 2012, Swan starred as Erica Reed in Breakout Kings, shooting many of the prison scenes in actual prisons. Breakout Kings was canceled on May 17, 2012. She is slated to portray Zera in upcoming Brent Ryan Green film The Veil.
Swan described Legacy as "amazing" to take part in, stating in an interview that her role as a Siren involved "about a 7-hour process to get your hair and makeup in wardrobe."
In another interview, she enthused about the experience: "To be a part of something like Tron, good God! It doesn’t matter how big or small your role is, you’re like, 'Yeah, I was in Tron.' Going to set and looking at Jeff Bridges, you’re like, 'I don’t even know what to do with myself.' What an iconic person, and what a sheer gentleman."
