Jessica Biel - Details


Born in Ely, Minnesota, and raised in Boulder, Colorado, Jessica Biel has paid her dues in the Hollywood scene. A break-out star as Mary Camden on the WB's highest rated show, "7th Heaven" (1996), Jessica still manages to make a few appearances per season, even though she has left the show, in the midst of an exploding film career. Last fall she excited and terrified movie-goers with her portrayal of "Leatherface's" greatest nemesis to date, as Erin in New Line Cinema's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), its remake of the famous original. Having finished filming, Blade: Trinity (2004), in Vancouver with Wesley Snipes, 'Ryan Reynolds and Kris Kristofferson, she has recently transported her intensely-cut and trained body of a vampire hunter/killer to Australia to fill the uniform and project the integrity of one of film's first female jet-fighter pilots in Columbia/Sony Pictures new film, Stealth (2005), starring Josh Lucas, Jamie Foxx and S'am Shepherd' , with director 'Rob Cohen .

Jessica's film career began at age 14 when she played alongside 'Peter Fonda' in his Golden Globe-winning performance in Ulee's Gold (1997). Her other film credits include, I'll Be Home for Christmas (1998), Summer Catch (2001), Roger Avary's The Rules of Attraction (2002) and the recently completed film Cellular (2004), which stars Chris Evans, Kim Basinger and William H. Macy' .

Very 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 last fall when she was offered to lead roles on Broadway in "Rent" and "Beauty and the Beast." Demands from the film world took precedence, but hopefully, one of these days soon, we will get to experience just another aspect of this fascinating young woman.
