Stephanie Barkley always wanted to be an actress. Her career path took an unusual turn when she became a Vine celebrity years ago before the platform went defunct.

Despite the Internet stardom, the young actress is making strides on the screen by starring in the lead role with the horror movie The Canyonlands. In the film, she played Lauren who guided five people on a rafting trip through the Canyonlands. However, the adventure takes a deadly turn as an evil dead spirit hunts them down for previous sins.
