She also played opposite Pierce Brosnan in the film Taffin before taking the role as Austrian Nazi-sympathiser and archaeologist Dr. Elsa Schneider in 1989's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade playing opposite Harrison Ford.

She subsequently relocated to Hollywood.Chosen to replace Cybill Shepherd as spokeswoman for L'Oréal, she then went on to play opposite Charlie Sheen in Major League II as Flannery, his girlfriend/agent.

Doody returned to acting with a small role in the British comedy movie The Actors with Michael Caine, in which she played herself in an award ceremony scene.

She played alongside Patrick Swayze in a television movie adaptation of King Solomon's Mines and also starred in a short called Benjamin's Struggle (2005),[citation needed] a pamphlet about the Holocaust, and in the British TV series Waking the Dead (in a two-part episode called "The Fall") in 2007.

In 2010, Doody shot a part in the latest Danny Dyer film, called The Rapture. She later currently guest starred in RTÉ's medical drama The Clinic.
