This was unexpected because she wasn’t the original choice – Samantha Logan was first meant to play the lead role, however, after recasts, Jessica got the role.

Jessica is currently filming for “Scream”, an anthology television series in which she has a main role.

Jessica about her role in “Recovery Road”
She’s revealed how the role of Maddie had a big impact on her, opening her eyes when it comes to teen addiction in particular.

She explains how this show can help you see your problems, and help you choose to seek help and advice.
People who inspired her

Her interests besides acting
Jessica claims how she always wanted to become a writer – if she was to choose, she would have tried her best to become a comedy sketcher. She and her friend who she lived with in New York both had the same idea but Jessica became an actress while her friend became a stand-up comedian and has stand-up performances around New York. Humor is something she loves the most, and hopes that someday she might get back to writing comedy sketches. ‘I like humor because—and this is going to sound cheesy—but the world is a very dark place, and we have people that are creating things to make people laugh or it’s just a satire of what’s happening, and I’m always interested in people who can do that so well.’ – this is how Jessica describes humor and her love for it.
