Palmer thought that she would work in an animal rescue service, and eventually open her own animal welfare agency.
A role in Wolf Creek (2005) followed, in a pool party scene.
Written by Palmer and Webber, it is a love story that explores the depths of marriage.
In 2015, she appeared in the Terrence Malick-directed film Knight of Cups, starring Christian Bale.
Palmer signed on to do three movies, if the film became a franchise.
She appeared opposite Joel Edgerton in the independent Australian drama-thriller, Wish You Were Here, directed by Kieran Darcy-Smith.
Palmer starred in the psychological thriller Restraint, with English actor Stephen Moyer and Calvin Klein model Travis Fimmel.
