Her passion for music and piano led her to join indie/electro band White Rose Movement on keyboards in 2008, recording an album, traveling internationally and playing before audiences of tens of thousands. In 2010, she joined the band Genuflex. Alongside music she spent several years appearing in short films. Bigger acting roles soon followed and Poppy landed her first part in a feature film in 2012, playing Demetria in The Dark Prince alongside Academy Award winner Jon Voight.
