I’m Here With voted Jessica Nelson, Calgary’s sweetest rising star. Jessica just a year ago loved to be behind the camera, and working with technology. She is beautiful from inside out. If you had told Jess that she was going to end up acting and Modeling before she was 18, she would have shook her head and laughed. That all changed when she was cast in Calico in 2014.
Ever since Jessica Nelson was the mere age of five, she had been producing and editing her own self made movies on a hand held camera, usually starring her younger sister, Kristina Nelson. In her elementary years. Jessica participated in many school productions and choir performances over the years. She’s performed at the Calgary Zoo Lights two years in a row and the Sing Festival. It wasn’t until Jessica attended a fine-arts school in junior high, in which she truly discovered her true passion for acting, alongside dancing, singing, sketching and music. Through the next couple years, Jessica worked on school production/animation/tech teams when she had the time around her busy schedule of sports and music. It wasn’t until the middle of 2014 when she had her first break. Jessica filmed her first IMDb credited short, Social Suicide 3 (2014), written and directed by Brandon Watson and Jessica Nelson. Right after the short, she received the chance to co-star in a feature film, in which she portrayed the role of Olivia.
Calico (2014) written/directed/starring/edited by Brandon Watson, brought many new opportunities to her table. Jessica has been spoke modeling photography companies, as well had the chance to meet many well-known actors/directors in the Alberta film industry already. Now in high school, Jessica is continuing her studies in advanced placement honors mathematics and sciences next to her acting and modeling.
