After making her film debut in 1981, she appeared on the soap opera General Hospital and subsequently gained attention for her roles in Blame It on Rio (1984) and St. Elmo's Fire (1985).

In 1990, Moore starred in Ghost, which was the highest-grossing film of that year and brought her a Golden Globe nomination.
