Tennet began taking dance lessons at four years old. She says that she followed her older sister into dance and eventually stumbled into acting. She made her first major television appearance in the fourth season of Xena: Warrior Princess as the runaway Princess Alesia in the episode "If The Shoe Fits...".

Eventually, Tennet made her way into films. She went on to win the "Best Juvenile Performer" award at the Nokia New Zealand Film and TV Awards in 2000, for her role as Nicole Mitchell in Kids World. She also appeared in Peter Jackson's film adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers as Freda, a young girl of Rohan. She then won "Best Actress" at the Drifting Clouds Short Film Festival for her outstanding performance in the short film Watermark, beating the other adult nominees. The film won "Best Film" at the same awards.

Following this, Tennet became part of the core cast for Maddigan's Quest as the bratty circus performer Lilith. She would then gain her biggest television role to date as Tuesday Warner on Shortland Street, becoming part of the core cast for the 2007 and 2008 seasons. After her time on that show ended, she portrayed the role of teenage genius Dr. K on Power Rangers RPM, the seventeenth season of the Power Rangers series which premiered in March 2009.

Since her appearance on Power Rangers RPM, Tennet has participated in various television shows and theatrical productions. She played the role of nurse Lynne in an Auckland Theatre Company production of Stepping Out in June 2010, followed by the role of the Siren Queen for the Wet Hot Beauties' water ballet show titled Sirens for the Auckland Fringe Festival in February 2011. She also helped choreograph the show.

Later on, Tennet made a television appearance in an episode of The Almighty Johnsons as Delphine in March 2011.

She then took on the role of Dorothy in a major theatrical production of The Wizard of Oz based on the 1987 musical produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Civic Theatre in September 2011, earning positive reviews for her portrayal of the character.

Her latest television appearance has been on the miniseries as Julie Theilman, a courier working for Terry Clark of the Mr. Asia drug syndicate.
