Prebble attended Queen Margaret College between 1999 and 2001 and was Prefect in charge of Arts and Proxime Accessit in her final year. She then matriculated to Victoria University of Wellington, where she studied a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics. Initially, Prebble had been studying for a Bachelor of Laws before she switched programs.
Prebble became interested in acting at an early age, starring in the stage play The Magical Kingdom of Thingymijig in 1993. In the late 1990s she started to work a lot with New Zealand children's TV production companies, with starring and guest roles in several programmes. Her roles included Mandy McFarlane in the second season of Mirror, Mirror in 1997, and Trudy in five series' of The Tribe from 1999 to 2003. She also guest starred in two episodes of Power Rangers: Dino Thunder as Krista, alongside two of her fellow cast members from The Tribe. In 2006, she began her role in Power Rangers: Mystic Force as Clare Langtree, the Gatekeeper and Udonna's apprentice.
In 2005, she was cast in the new New Zealand comedy-drama Outrageous Fortune as 15-year-old movie buff Loretta West. At the end of the fifth series, Loretta married Hayden Peters (played by Shane Cortese), her partner and the father of her child. In February 2010, filming wrapped for the sixth and final series. By this time, Loretta West had become a smart and successful business entrepreneur and a madame of a brothel. The final episode of the series aired 9 November 2010.
Prebble had a cameo role in the TVNZ series The Almighty Johnsons as a red-herring for the identity of the Norse goddess, Frigg in the show's first season in 2011. The real 'Frigg' was eventually played by her former Outrageous Fortune co-star Siobhan Marshall, who had played her on-screen sister, Pascalle.
Prebble and Marshall teamed up again in 2013 for the mystery thriller, The Blue Rose.
In 2015 she had the lead role of Rita West in Westside, a prequel to Outrageous Fortune, about Ted and Rita West in the 1970s.
Prebble has given birth on screen five times, starting with The Tribe as a 14-year old, then Outrageous Fortune, a short film, White Lies, and a play as Mary mother of Jesus (who just popped out .... and we all sang a song).
