Early in her career, she won critical praise for several supporting roles. One reviewer said that she played her part in Notes on a Scandal (2006) with “petulance and angst”, while her performance as Lola Quincey in Atonement (2007) was called “impressive”. She auditioned to play Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), though the role ultimately went to Evanna Lynch. In 2009, Temple played Eema in the comedy Year One alongside Jack Black and Michael Cera, Anna in Jaco Van Dormael‘s Mr. Nobody, and Di Radfield in the film adaptation of Sheila Kohler‘s novel, Cracks.

She also starred in Elgin James‘s 2011 film Little Birds. James offered her the choice of playing either of the two female leads and she chose to portray Lily, citing that she connected with the character more and “wanted to set her free”. Temple and James worked on Little Birds together for two years, and continued to collaborate afterwards, referring to each other as “best friends” and “family” in interviews. James has said he made Little Birds to honor the strong women in his life, including Temple. That same year, she was named a Brit to Watch by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
In 2012, she appeared in The Dark Knight Rises, as a “street-smart Gotham girl”, and portrayed Diane in the lesbian werewolf tale Jack & Diane. In February 2013, Temple won the EE Rising Star BAFTA Award, voted for by the public.
