Born and raised in Sydney, Jessica-Belle (J.B) was trained in singing and dance from a young age. Jessica-Belle was accepted into the Actors Centre Australia Full-Time Course after her high school education at Rosebay Secondary College. She participated in their strong Drama course and her HSC individual piece, adapted from Yates’Revolutionary Road, received a nomination for Onstage and the highest individual mark of the state (2010).
Playing Lady Macbeth in Joseph Uchitel’s adaptation of Macbeth (2012) and Martha in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolfin Theatre USA 2 (2013), directed by Rodney Fisher, were definite highlights from her time in the course. With a keen desire for playwriting and future collaborations with her ensemble, Jessica-Belle hopes to work in theatre, film, and many a Shakespeare play.
