Jenna Mattison started her career in Chicago appearing on television and radio. She blossomed within the theatre community as a teenager, playing Catherine in Arthur Miller's "A View From the Bridge". After extensive training, including appearances in such renowned local theaters as the Steppenwolf Theatre, Jenna left Chicago and headed for Los Angeles.

It wasn't long after her arrival in L.A. that she began landing film and television roles, guest-starring on Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990), Party of Five (1994) and The Fighting Fitzgeralds (2001). A writer/producer as well, Jenna founded Cheshire Smile Productions, bringing to life her feature film Fish Without a Bicycle (2003), a festival-winning coming-of-age comedy directed by Brian Austin Green. The film was reviewed by such publications as "The New York Times", "The Los Angeles Times" and the "Hollywood Reporter", being described as "a revelation and a breath of fresh air", "equal parts Sandra Bullock and Julia Roberts", "Mattison has the movie star ability to hold the screen with her blazing red hair and radiant smile". "Fish" is now available on Netflix.

She then returned to her theatre roots to rave reviews in an off-Broadway run of the critically acclaimed comedy "Fluffy Bunnies in a Field of Daisies" and was reviewed as "The glue that held the production together". Jenna continues to appear in other films, such as her starring role as Summer in Drew Ann Rosenberg's Alex in Wonder (2001) opposite Alison Lohman and Danny Masterson, and the independent movie Hip! Edgy! Quirky! (2002), a comedy about the Hollywood lifestyle with Phyllis Diller. She appeared in The Naked Run (2002), a political satire opposite Maxine Bahns and Richard Tyson.

Jenna has also signed on to "Brenda Starr Reporter", produced by Tribune, Classic Media and Constance M.

Another project in development at Lawrence Bender's company "A Band Apart Is "The Stable", a gritty television series with Mattison starring and writing alongside Scott Lobdell, famed Marvel comics writer and creator of "Ball & Chain" and "Hell Hole". Another television pilot in development at the Warner Bros. company Last Straw Is another Mattison original dramedy "Liza Radley", being executive produced by Anthony LaPaglia.
