Jessamine Hughes is 17 and lives in Nottingham, where she has trained over the years with YARD at the New Art Exchange, The Nottingham Playhouse and The Arts Theatre. She is of Eastern European (Romanian), British and Australian descent.
Her arrestingly sensitive, natural acting is coupled with a mature approach to her work and an unassuming attitude towards her skills and talents.
She is an elite level athlete – a middle distance runner and multi-eventer – and accomplished in other sports such as climbing, cycling, open water swimming and skiing. She has a moving, beautiful voice and loved using it in her school’s Oliver! production as much as she is now, as lead singer and keyboard player in her band.
Jessamine loves screen work as well as presenting and modelling, which she has already done for a few brands and companies – most recently for ASICS, featuring in the lead sports brand’s 2022 online commercial and photographic ads campaign.
She has experience in immersive and interactive performances for young children and enjoys using her Romanian and French language skills and array of accents, from various UK, US and Australian to French and Eastern European.
Jessamine has bases in London, Suffolk and Devon as well as in Bucharest, Sofia and Oslo. She holds both UK and EU passports.
