His first acting gig was a commercial for First 5 California that was directed by Vadim Perelman.

 career
 Early work, 2006-2010
After completing a short Fernandez kicked off his acting career in television when he appeared in Cold Case, his first TV show, followed by bit parts in Drake & Josh and Lincoln Heights. His screen debut came two years later, in 2007, when he landed the role of Edgar in Interstate before returning to TV. He landed his first recurring role in Jericho as Sean Henthorn between 2006-07. The series was cancelled after just one series before a campaign by fans saw it return for a second before being cancelled once again.

In 2008, Fernandez became one of the front-runners to play Edward Cullen after he auditioned for Catherine Hardwicke in her Venice Beach garage, during the casting of Twilight. Fernandez was allegedly Hardwicke’s first choice, but it was up to Kristen Stewart who had the last say. Shiloh later recalled on his narrowly missed opportunity, "At the time, it was just another audition. I didn’t realize I was missing out on stardom and giant paychecks. Now, looking back on it, I certainly wouldn’t have been mentally stable enough to deal with all that. Lucky for me, not getting that part led to other work that was a much better fit for me." Fernandez, who had no formal training, admitted being bashful around other actors during rehearsals. Having done an array of television shows including starring in the Gossip Girl episode "Valley Girls" as Owen Campos, alongside Brittany Snow and Krysten Ritter. He eventually landed his first big break playing a troubled small-town Texas rink manager in the 2010 Sundance hit Skateland with Twilight alum Ashley Greene.

 Breakthrough, 2011-present
Though he lost the Twilight role to Robert Pattinson, Hardwicke liked Fernandez enough to cast him in what would be his first romantic lead in Red Riding Hood opposite Amanda Seyfried. The role became his Hollywood movie breakthrough, making him a hot commodity. MTV Networks' NextMovie.com named him one of the 'Breakout Stars to Watch for in 2011'. As he shot into the spotlight he became the cover model of Nylon Guys March 2011 issue, introducing him as "Hollywood's New Rebel". He then became the cover man for the April/May 2011 issue of Da Man magazine. Fernandez also is lined up to play his first film role that requires an accent , in a British drama called The Beloved. In addition he is set to be in the indie film Syrup, based on the novel of the same name by Max Barry.
