Born in Toronto to a South African-Jewish family, Jamie discovered her passion for performing at the tender age of 6. Starting on stage, she appeared in a number of theatre productions that brought her out of her shell and into the spotlight. But it soon became clear that film and television was where she really needed to be, and her love for acting blossomed into a lengthy resume of television and film credits 10 years in the making.
Alongside acting, Jamie’s passions extend to filmmaking as well. Her strengths as a writer inspired her to begin screenwriting and now, two years later, she will be debuting her skills both behind and in front of the camera in her upcoming short film, Reflection.
