Jamie began her acting career at the ripe young age of six. When she realized that the live studio audience was applauding for her, she turned to her mom and said “That’s for me? I want more!” Mind you, this was her first acting job ever which just so happened to be on the set of Saved By the Bell: The College Years when Zack was still pining after Kelly and Kelly got hot for Professor Lasky. Had Jamie not started acting when she did, her parents were convinced she would have won a Gold medal as a gymnast, as her skills on the uneven bars were undoubtedly the best in her age category, bar none. Instead, she traded in her balance beam for the screen.
From that day on Jamie has consistently been working, appearing in several feature films (including Blockbuster hit Dante’s Peak) and numerous television shows from playing young Fran Drescher on The Nanny to Silas’ college girlfriend on Weeds. Though working on sets was a full time job for Jamie, she still managed to make time for school and excel academically throughout her childhood and adolescence. She was one of thirty students to be accepted into the transfer program at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television in 2009 in which she received her B.A. in Theater/Acting, graduating cum laude.
Jamie is also an avid dancer and singer. Having taken years of ballet, pointe, jazz and hip hop, Jamie still dreams of the day in which she gets to portray a dancer. As for singing, this petite woman has some pipes, likening herself to a female version of Bon Jovi. (Wanted (Dead or Alive) is her favorite karaoke song.)
In addition to acting, Jamie is a die-hard fan of E.T.: The Extraterrestrial, any kind of cheese and of course, Bryan Cranston.
