Jessika - teenage actress and book worm
I have now started a new website dedicated to acting careers and acting opportunities. Go to alwaysacting.com to learn more. If you have any questions about acting, the information on my new website will likely be helpful if you want to learn more about getting into acting.
My names is Jessika and I am currently living in Vancouver B.C. where I am pursuing acting opportunities and seeing what life is like on the west coast. There is alot of waiting in the acting industry, waiting for your next audition or film company to come through town, and I spend my "waiting time" completing a physics degree at the University of B.C.
I have been acting since I was 12 years old and have been in many productions, film, commercial, and stage acting. I have done more auditions and more extra work than I can count, taken numerous acting classes, and had speaking roles in different productions such as “Waking up Wally" and an AADAC commercial (which I was lucky enough to see played in theatres). Have a look at my Acting Page.
Acting and Movies
I have been an extra in movies like The Twelve Days of Christmas Eve, Catching the Chameleon, and I play the daughter in upcoming movie Waking Up Walter: The Walter Gretzky Story, the true story about the father of the famous hockey player Wayne Gretzky.
My favorite book series is definitely Harry Potter but otherwise I like tons of other books some of the more memorable ones are Inkheart (Cornelia Funke), The Thief Lord (Cornelia Funke), The Georgia Nicholson Series (Louise Rennison), The Shadow Children Series (Margaret Peterson Haddix), and the list could go on forever because I am a bookworm.
I have owned a lot of pets in my life - a guinea pig, hamster, dog, cat, fish, more dogs, and more cats and I know a lot about all of these pets because to get them I had to research all that I could. Pets are great!
I am interested in music and I play the Flute, Drums and some Guitar. I learned to play the flute in a school band and the drums I learned mostly by myself except for one lesson. Robert has tried to teach me how to play guitar and I?ve listened to some of it but otherwise I just know the basics. I like all kinds of music pretty much but my favorite is Old Rock (Motley Crue, Led Zeppelin) some new punk rock (Blink 182) and music from musicals (Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera).
Style of music
For playing purposes I play whatever comes to mind on the drums, and whatever music I'm given in band. I have 2 younger sisters which can get annoying a lot but on the whole I love them both. My favorite at home past time is drinking tea with a new copy of the fashion magazine LOU LOU, and otherwise I just love hanging with my friends and acting.
