In March 2019, it became known that actress Jessica Stroup, not having time to rest from one cinematic work, immediately took up the next. This time she is involved in the drama series “Heart of Life” by Ann Fletcher. By the way, the filming of a serial film about brothers and sisters who are in different worlds, but have a common father, the creators were inspired by the song of the same name by John Mayer (Mayer).
Childhood and youth
At the end of the second autumn month of 1986, on the 23rd, in the American city of Anderson, where many professional athletes – baseball players, football players and basketball players – come from, the vice president of MUFG Union Bank Don and his wife Judy Stroup had a second child. The family clearly respected the letter D – the eldest son was named Dave, and the youngest daughter – Jessica Lee. By the way, Emilia Clarke, the future star of Game of Thrones, was born on the same day in London .
According to the celebrity, from childhood she grew up surrounded by boys and therefore could stand up for herself, learned to fight to the end and love horror films. Also in an interview, Jess said that by the 9th grade she managed to change 9 schools due to frequent moves. As a result, in 2004, she got a certificate of secondary education from Providence High School. Then the University of Georgia invited the girl to his place, providing a scholarship, but she refused, choosing a career.
On the set of the spin-off series Beverly Hills 90210 in 2008, the American had an affair with her colleague Dustin Milligan. The couple stayed in a relationship for a little less than two years – the paparazzi noticed Jess without a lover at the Breakthrough of the Year awards ceremony in August 2010.
Now the woman prefers to hide the details of her personal life – on her Instagram you can find many photos with family, friends and colleagues, but pictures with a possible chosen one are not published. But on social networks, the star of television series does not hesitate to seem funny, for example, sitting on a tree in a swimsuit and comparing himself to a monkey.
Stroup has repeatedly admitted that she is a big fan of volleyball, loves all sorts of smells, in men she is most attracted to her hair, and in food – salad with quinoa or arugula with chicken or shrimp.
Jessica’s first appearance on the set was in the youth “Netaka” in 2005, where the young beauty flashed in the episode “Road Trip”. Then she appeared in the “Death Pack”. In 2006, the aspiring actress got a supporting role in Pray for Tomorrow, and the main role the next year in the second part of The Hills Have Eyes.
In addition to full-length films, the artist’s filmography includes many TV series – “The Reaper”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “True Blood”, “Followers” and, of course, the long-running “90210: The New Generation”. Participation in the latter earned Stroup the Young Hollywood Awards.
By the way, before plunging headlong into the cinema, Jess tried herself as a model (height 173 cm and weight 55 kg allowed), listening to the instructions of her mother, who had in the past the title of “Miss North Carolina”.
