Not everyone is successful when they try to delve into other careers that are far from their immediate place of influence. But with determination and a little bit of luck, Jessica Green was able to create success in this regard. The Aussie-born supermodel was able to add actress to her title when she starred as Kiki in the Aussie TV series, Alien Surfer Girl.
The model cum actress, who has had modelling contracts with the likes of Nike as well as Billabong, Cellini, and other Australian brands, hasn’t had a long acting career but is already getting looks to feature in big movie franchises. Most recently, she joined the main cast of The CW’s series, The Outpost.
Who is Jessica Green and How Old is She?
Jessica was born in Tasmania, Australia, on February 11, 1993. While her father’s identity is not known, her mother is Cherine Green. Cherine works as Jessica’s manager through their management company, Green Management. She has a brother named Tyler who also works as a model. Tyler once dated Paris Jackson, daughter of the infamous King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
As the story goes, the actress recalls always wanting to be a model from the time she was exposed to the world of sports and entertainment. Her passion for modelling started at the age of 3 after her family relocated to Queensland in 1996.
Jessica Green eventually started modelling when she turned 14. Two years later, she came out tops in a modelling contest that saw her land an agent for the first time. She has since gone ahead to achieve supermodel status by Australian standards and is very popular in her native land.
Throughout her modelling career, Green has featured in ad campaigns for Billabong, Nike, Triumph, 2Chillies Swimwear, and Lisa Blue Swimwear among others. She is also the official face of Australian brands like Goddess Hair, Swim Show Australia, and Schwarzkopf.
Besides her traditional modelling collaborations, Jessica Green is also an effective social media influencer. Her Instagram page is full of endorsements and advertisements for the likes of Mossy Australia, Daniel Wellington Watches, BondiBoost, Status Society, Doll Swimwear and more.
Jessica Green got her first acting role in the Aussie sci-fi series Lighting Point in 2012. She was just 19 at the time. The model was initially sceptical when her agent proposed the idea of branching into acting but eventually agreed to give it a try. Her first audition was said to be nothing short of a disaster as she tried out for the role of Kiki on Lighting Point. She recalls that her audition was really awkward and that she forgot her lines.
Green had completely forgotten about the audition when she received a call one day on her way back from a modelling job. It was the casting team and they informed her that she would get another chance to audition if she worked to improve her acting skills. She subsequently went under an acting coach and after a few rehearsal sessions, she was given the chance at a second audition, which led her to get the lead role of Kiki.
Since then, Green has bagged several TV and movie roles. She was Laura in Dirty, Clean & In Between (2017); Lexx in Ash vs Evil Dead (2018); and Cleopatra in the docu-series, Roman Empire (2018) among others.
As a model, brand ambassador and actress, most of Jessica Green’s work has occurred in her native country. Her face is a delight to millions of Australians and brands across the country. She spends most of her time shuttling between Australia and the United States as she juggles her career as an actress and a model.
