|Jessica Biel, with her striking good looks and wide range of talent, has become one of
Hollywood's most sought-out actresses. Her television series acting debut on the WB's #1-rated
show, "7th Heaven", has helped her emerge as a breakout star.
As a child Jessica initially pursued a career as a vocalist, performing in musical theater.
Beginning at age nine, she starred in such productions as "Annie," "The Sound of Music," and
"Beauty and the Beast." A natural beauty, Jessica soon turned to modeling and commercial
work by competing in The International Modeling and Talent Association's Annual Conference
After completing a year and a half of college at Tufts University in Medford Massachusetts,
Jessica plans on going back to school in California for the remainder of her college years. In her
spare time, she is involved with charities such as Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and PETA.
Her hobbies include ballet, soccer, running, yoga and hiking with her dog "East." Jessica
currently resides in Los Angeles.
Born in Ely, Minnesota, and raised in Boulder, Colorado, Jessica Biel has paid her dues in the
Hollywood scene. In 2003 she excited and terrified moviegoers with her portrayal of Erin,
"Leatherface's" greatest nemesis to date, in New Line Cinema's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,
a remake of the famous original. Having finished filming, Blade: Trinity in Vancouver with
Wesley Snipes, Ryan Reynolds, and Kris Kristofferson, she has transported her toned and
trained body of a vampire hunter/killer to Australia to fill the uniform and project the integrity
of one of filmdom's first female jet-fighter pilots in the Columbia/Sony Pictures film, Stealth.
Most recently she can be seen as a murdered princess in "The Illiusionist" with Ed Norton and
testing her mcomedy chops as the legal eagle Alex McDounough in the hilarious "I Now
Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" along side Adam Sandler and Kevin James.
Jessica's film career began at age 14 when she played alongside Peter Fonda in his Golden
Globe-winning performance in Ulee's Gold. Her other film credits include I'll Be Home for
Christmas, Summer Catch, Roger Avary's The Rules of Attraction, and Cellular, which stars
Chris Evans, Kim Basinger, and William H. Macy. Few people know that this powerhouse of
acting talent and versatility has a secret talent that has been put on hold for the past eight years,
but surfaced when she was offered lead roles on Broadway in "Rent" and "Beauty and the
Beast." Demands from her film career took precedence, but hopefully, one of these days soon,
we will get to experience just another aspect of this fascinating young woman.
