Cox competed in the areas of gymnastics, track and field and Tae Kwon Do.[1] At one point she had aspirations of becoming an Olympic gymnast but then focused on drama and dance while in high school.[3] She is also proficient in boxing, Muay Thai Kickboxing and fencing and has had training in stage combat, period weaponry and firearms.[1]

Cox has appeared in numerous national theater productions such as William Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" to Jim Cartwright's raw and dirty "Road".[5] She is also credited with stuntwork in Million Dollar Baby, starring Hilary Swank. Her first role as a main character in a television series was that of Vicki Nelson in the short lived Blood Ties, a supernatural detective series based on the novels by Tanya Huff.[6] Tanya Huff said that: "Back when Christina Cox was doing FX: The Series, I used to point at the screen and announce, 'When she's a little older, she'd be brilliant as Vicki!"[6]

She starred as astronaut-biologist Jen Crane in ABC's 2009 summer show Defying Gravity. Cox also appeared on Showtime in the Dexter episode "Dex Takes a Holiday" as police officer Zoey Kruger.
