In 2005, she graduated from Stuartholme School in her hometown of Brisbane. After graduating from high school, she wanted to be a Doctor and only did commercials for extra money. However, she discontinued her education and ultimately began her career as an actress. 

Holt made her acting debut in 2006, portraying the role of Emma Gilbert in the Network Ten children’s fantasy drama series H2O: Just Add Water. Her role in the series won her a ‘Logie Award’ and ‘Nickelodeon Australia Kids’ Choice Award.’ However, she left the series after two seasons when she got an offer for a film. Subsequently, she made her film debut in the 2009 supernatural horror film Messengers 2: The Scarecrow, a sequel to the 2007 film The Messenger. The film was released straight to DVD. 

After that, Holt appeared as Chastity Meyer in the 2011 comedy TV movie Mean Girls 2. The same year, she appeared in a recurring role of Samara Cook in the romantic mystery drama TV series Pretty Little Liars.
