In the 1950s, she moved to New York City and performed on stage. Rodd spent the 1960s appearing on Broadway in such plays as Neil Simon's The Last of the Red Hot Lovers. In 1971, she appeared in the drama film T.R. Baskin with Candice Bergen and the black comedy Little Murders oppositeElliott Gould.

During the 1970s, she appeared in several films and made-for-television productions, and continued making appearances on television shows through the next three decades.
