A gifted young actress, Jessica has already played a variety of roles ranging from light comedy to gritty drama since beginning her career three-and-a-half years ago. She recently guest-starred in an episode of the acclaimed medical drama "Chicago Hope." This fall, she will also be seen starring opposite Freddie Prinze, Jr. as a pregnant teenager in a difficult relationship in the ABC TV movie "Too Soon For Jeff."

B orn in Pomona, California on April 28, 1981, Jessica and her family moved to Biloxi, Mississippi when she was an infant. Three years later, her Air Force father brought the family back to California, then to Del Rio, Texas, before finally settling in southern California when Jessica was nine. In love with the idea of becoming an actress from the age of five, Jessica was 12 before she took her first acting class. Nine months later, she was signed by an agent.

J essica made her feature film debut in 1993 in the Hollywood Pictures comedy "Camp Nowhere." Originally hired for two weeks, she got her lucky break when an actress in a principal role suddenly dropped out. Jessica cheerfully admits it wasn't her prodigious talent or charm that inspired the director to tap her to take over the part. It was her hair, which matched the original performer's. The two-week job stretched to two months, and Jessica ended the film with an impressive first credit.

T wo national television commercials for Nintendo and J.C. Penney quickly followed before Jessica was featured in several independent films. She branched out into television in 1994 with a recurring role in Nickelodeon's popular comedy series "The Hidden World of Alex Mac." She played an insufferable young snob, devoted to making life miserable for the title character, a girl with magical powers. That same year, she won the role of Maya in "Flipper" and filmed the pilot for the series. Jessica spent 1995 shooting the first season's episodes in Australia.

A n avid swimmer and PADI-certified scuba diver, she is delighted to be doing a show which allows her to play with dolphins and participate in her favorite sports.
