Along with her sister Courtney, she worked as a child actor. Although she was featured in a number of roles as a child and teenager, Peldon is perhaps best known for her role on the daytime soap opera Guiding Light. She was cast in 1988, at the age of 4, as Marah Lewis, the daughter of popular couple Josh and Reva Lewis. Because of the positive audience response, she became the youngest entertainer to be put under contract on the show. Peldon received an Emmy Award nomination at 6 years of age, for her three years as Marah Lewis on the soap opera Guiding Light. Peldon went on to appear in motion pictures such as The Lemon Sisters opposite Diane Keaton, Stella opposite Bette Midler, Deceived opposite Goldie Hawn, and the cult favorite, Drop Dead Fred opposite Phoebe Cates. More currently, she also appeared in Arthur Miller`s The Crucible opposite Winona Ryder and Daniel Day-Lewis and in Ghost World with Scarlett Johansson, among many other films. She recently completed the horror film Dimples, Sony Pictures` sci-fi drama Night Skies, and the coming of age comedy Float. The native New Yorker also has numerous commercials, voice-overs, series, and television films on her resume. For two years Peldon appeared on the NBC television series The Mommies and has had key recurring roles on such television series as That 70s Show and The Pretender. Peldon starred as "spoiled actress Amy King" in MTV`s comedy series Connected.

In January 2007, Peldon graduated from college with a bachelor`s degree in Child Psychology and Film from Skidmore College in New York.
