She secured the role of Janae Timmins after previously appearing in a guest role in 2003. Taylor had originally auditioned for the role of Lana Crawford, however, it was actress Bridget Neval who was eventually cast.In 2007, Nell Feeney and Sianoa Smit-McPhee, who play Taylor’s on-screen mother Janelle Timmins and Sister Bree Timmins, were written out by executive producer Ric Pellizzeri, but it was confirmed that they wanted Taylor-Cotter to remain in the serial as Janae. Later that year, Taylor-Cotter decided to quit the serial to pursue other projects such as pantomime and a further career in the USA. One of the contributing factors that helped Taylor-Cotter reach this decision was that all of her on-screen family had been written out and new cast members gave the serial the feel of a different place. She also added: “It just didn’t feel like the family that I joined when I started three years ago. Taylor-Cotter was one of many cast members that quit the serial at the same time. Taylor-Cotter finished filming her final studio scenes in 2007 and her final episode was screened on 8 February 2008. In 2007, Taylor was nominated for Best Female at the Inside Soap Awards.

“I didn’t actually audition. I’d been living in LA for about a month and my credit card was stolen and all my money was taken – spent at Home Depot, which was great – and I was ready to pack my bags and go back to Australia because I didn’t know how I was going to survive in LA any longer and then I got a call from my manager to say that an audition I’d done months ago for a film had been looked at by the producers of this TV show called The 100 and they wanted me to go in for a reading the next day. So I read the script that night and loved it and went in for the meeting the next day and got the role. Before I knew it I was on a plane to Vancouver to shoot the pilot and my whole life changed.
For her role in The 100, Taylor was nominated for Choice TV Actress: Sci-Fi/Fantasy at the Teen Choice Awards from 2015 to 2018.In 2017, she starred as Ellen Langford in the Netflix Christmas romantic drama film Christmas Inheritance.
