She has provided stunts for shows such as Passions (with David Kilde), Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (with fiance Erik Betts and Gregory J. Barnett), Point Pleasant (with Barnett and James Morrison), V.I.P. (with J.J. Perry and Jalil Jay Lynch), Supah Ninjas (with Hiro Koda and Jeff Cadiente) and iCarly.

Role on 24 Edit

Barker has appeared several times in 24:

  • In "Day 2: 5:00pm-6:00pm", she doubled for Elisha Cuthbert in the role of Kim Bauer. She was present during the filming of the sequence with the cougar, and after Cuthbert was bitten and had to be taken to hospital Barker was seen in the shots with the animal.

She was also present to double for Annie Wersching in the helicopter sequence in the Season 7 finale, but Wersching appears to do all her own stunts in that sequence.
