As a child, Blalock had a huge interest in surfing and acting which she was able to pay huge attention to as she did not have many friends, which she says was because she could not get along with other kids.
By the time she was in high school, however, Blalock, who described herself as an awkward looking child, grew into a beautiful woman that had the body of a runway model. This propelled her to pursue the career and further led to her leaving home at the age of 17 for Europe and Asia. Jolene Blalock moved across the world to pursue her modeling career, which turned out to be a good decision as she landed numerous gigs before going on to appear on the cover of multiple men’s lifestyle magazines.
While still working as a model, Blalock opted to try her hand in acting. Her high school acting career and the commercial gigs she had done had given her background knowledge to what it might be all about but Blalock still went ahead to sharpen her skills at the Stella Adler Academy and Toronto’s Second City Improv and Second City Los Angeles before going on to appear in Veronica’s Closet (1998) and then Love Boat: The Next Wave (1999).
In the coming years, Blalock appeared in the television movie Jason and the Argonauts (2000) as she also guest appeared in series like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and JAG before catching her big break in Star Trek: Enterprise (2001-2005) where she played the role of Sub-Commander/Commander T’Pol.
