In 2006, she played Jen opposite Toby Jones in Rupert Jones' short farce, "The Sickie," which she followed with another comic turn as Destiny in Neil Carter and Gerard Monaco's "The Journey Home" and a touching portrayal of bulimia victim Jess in Stuart Birchall's "Burning."

Sissons made her feature bow as Haze in Mark James and Phil O'Shea's 2007 lesbian saga, "Vampire Diary," and while she shocked some with her brazen display as a dominatrix in Robert Cavanah's "Pimp," it landed her a bit part in Mark Romanek's adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro''s "Never Let Me Go."
