After graduating from New Trier High School, Charlotte moved to Los Angeles, which her father opposed. She tried out for the role of Kelly Bundy on Married… with Children, but was the producers’ second choice behind Christina Applegate to whom she lost the role, before being cast as Eve Donovan on Days of Our Lives. Four years later, Ross co-starred with Katey Sagal (“Peg Bundy”) in the movie Violation of Trust (aka She Says She’s Innocent). The year after that, she guested on Married… with Children as one of Bud Bundy‘s sexier classmates.

In 2013, Ross began starring in the VH1 drama Hit the Floor . In 2014, Ross passed on an offer to return to Days of our Lives as Eve Donovan, and her role was recast with Kassie DePaiva because she was too busy with other acting projects. Along with this news, Ross made a guest appearance on the ABC musical drama series Nashville. Later that year she was cast as Felicity Smoak‘s mother in The CW series, Arrow.
