Member Monday: Jessica Rockwood
Actor Jessica Rockwood, 32, is one of the most positive women you will ever meet. In the competitive world of film and video, she chooses to cheer on her friends and fellow actors.
“I love making connections through acting and love being supportive to my fellow actors,” says Rockwood. “I never get upset when I lose an audition to a friend. I’m happy for them and encourage them. If you can’t be supportive to fellow actors then you won’t find them supporting you back. I’ve found great relationships with my fellow actors and seeing them succeed is something I enjoy as well as feeling such positive energy from them when they share in my successes.”
Rockwood grew up in Lynn, Massachusetts and began focusing on her acting career after a debilitating injury. That is when Rockwood realized that life was far too short to do anything that you aren’t passionate about, a realization which continues to be a driving force in her life.
When asked what she wished she had known early in her career Rockwood said “I wish I had pushed myself further and done what I wanted for myself instead of what other people wanted me to do. It’s not impossible, it’s just hard work.” However, after working in so many capacities we have a feeling that she certainly puts in the work necessary to be successful!
