As part of our very popular Island Con Indies platform, we’re thrilled to be welcoming back to the fold JESSICA-JANE STAFFORD! 😁
Although now building a flourishing Independent film career, you might just know her from somewhere else…
Jessica-Jane Stafford is a Sheffield born award-winning actress, best known for her 6 year role on BBC3’S The Real Hustle. Trained at the Lee Strasberg Film and Theatre Institute in New York, Jessica has been acting for over 17 years.
Due to her popularity in The Real Hustle, in 2011, Jess took on a new challenge by entering the Australian outback in ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here’. Her kind nature and infectious personality saw her become a favourite within the camp and also with the general public.
After presenting more shows on BBC3, Jess made a return to acting in 2013, starring in ‘Devils Tower’, in which Stafford played Kate – she received positive reviews for her role and it opened the doors further.
Stafford’s return to acting created a splash and saw her go on to win roles in movies including Doghouse with Danny Dyer, Redwood alongside Buffy star Nicholas Brandon, dark comedy horror Cannibals and Carpet Fitters alongside Alex Zane, and has recently finished filming up and coming movies ‘Order Of Kings: The Dark Kingdom’ – a medieval fantasy drama, as well as horror movie ‘Black Site’ and dark comedy ‘Dead Ringer’.
Jess also enjoyed a successful modelling career working with Rankin, Byron Newman and prolific photographer Bob Carlos Clarke (1950-2006) as his ‘Living Doll’ for exhibition ‘Love Dolls Never Die’. Jess became one of the UK’s top pinups shooting regular magazine covers and was in FHM’s top 100 sexiest women in the world 2009.
Jess landed several successful campaigns including the face and spokesperson for Lynx and posing nude with a bunny rabbit for “No bunny should suffer for beauty” campaign by PETA.
Our project is really kicking off now and we’re proud to be promoting some of the best up-and-coming names in the industry.
