She was the star of the Freeform television series – Recovery Road – which also starred her Skins co-star Sebastian de Souza. The series followed Maddie (played by Jessica Sula) a teenage drug user and party girl who does not see a problem with her lifestyle. When she is confronted about it by her school guidance counsellor, she is forced to chose between being expelled or entering rehab. Maddie chooses rehab and has to move to a sober living facility in order to get help. At the facility, she lives with other recovering addicts who she befriends despite the difficulties they face during their recovery.

Recovery Road is based on Blake Nelson’s young adult novel of the same name. Sadly, it got cancelled after one season.

3. Almost Didn’t Make The Cut

When auditioning for Skins, she thought she wasn’t going to make it because she had been quite timid in the group scene that the producers had asked her to perform. However, her timidness impressed the producers that they cast her as Grace on the show. Grace, in the show, was the daughter of the headmaster of Roundview College, David Blood. She was known to be quiet, idealistic, imaginative, endearing, level-headed and sometimes naive.

Jessica can probably tell many stories about her time on Skins; however, one of the more popular stories is about the time she was almost arrested by real police officers while filming a shoplifting scene for the show at the Bristol shopping centre. The production crew had to intervene to prevent her arrest.

4. Gay Or Straight? 

Not a lot is known about her personal life as she has taken great strides to ensure that the details remain private. However, this does not stop people from speculating about her sexuality.

For all intents and purposes (until she comes out to say otherwise), it is believed that Jessica is straight. However, while there have been rumours about her possible boyfriends, she has never confirmed any of the speculated relationships – choosing to keep her personal life out of the tabloids and gossip blogs.

5. Godless

Jessica was cast as Louise Hobbs a violinist and love interest for one the main characters in Godless. The movie also starred another Skins alum, Jack O’Connell – although Jessica and Jack never shared scenes on Skins (they weren’t even in the same seasons).

The limited series, Godless, tells the story of a criminal – Frank Griffin (played by Jeff Daniels) and his gang of outlaws as they go on a pursuit of vengeance against Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell), a former member who betrayed their gang.

Even though Jessica had limited time on screen during the show, her performance was definitely impressive.
