News and Updates

Booked a Toyota Commercial!

I had such fun shooting this spot in January—a mini Telenovela for Toyota’s Hispanic market called “Las Ruedas del Destino.” I joined the “novela” in its second season as LaTyna, the much-younger girlfriend of the family patriarch, played by a longtime novela star, Fernando Allende. You can catch my comically awful Valley-girl-accented Spanish when the spots start airing this month! (I promise I speak Spanish well in real life…)

A Time for Action

I shot this awesome, suuuper-serious PSA on how to assuage your looming fears about the nation through Tweeting!

It was a joy working with Kevin Anglin and Jamin Bricker on this project. We all address social issues and political activism in our own ways, and I happen to think art is an incredibly important vehicle for messages of change.

Ok, without further ado, please enjoy A Time for Action on Vimeo!

GIRL CODE online launch

GIRL CODE is streaming on Vimeo!

We've had an exciting launch day, with features on Ms In The Biz and Dead Celluloid. Dead Celluloid writes: 

While both the actors are excellent in their respective parts, Jessica Jacobs steals the show with a heart breaking performance, nuanced, and riveting, leaving the viewer truly gripped.

More features to come next week! Stay tuned as I'll be posting an interview I did with We Are Moving Stories.

LA Premiere of Dessa Rose

I am incredibly excited to be joining the cast of Chromolume Theatre's production of the Ahrens and Flaherty musical Dessa Rose. The cast is unbelievably talented, and will bring this story of two strong women to life beautifully. 

I am understudying the role of Ruth, an abandoned young mother in the Antebellum south who forms a grudging alliance with a runaway slave, Dessa Rose, and helps her to freedom. I have two guaranteed performances in February. Dates to be announced soon.
