Mini Bio (1)

British actress Sasha Jackson is primarily based in Los Angeles and travels worldwide for work commitments. Sasha has an EB1 Green Card in recognition of her talent and body of work. Sasha has trained with some of LA's most respected and renowned acting coaches, among them: Ivana Chubbuck (as a Masterclass member), Andrew Magarian, Taylor Sheridan and Warner Loughlin and has had intensive one-to-one dialect coaching with the master of voices, Bob Corff, which has given her a US accent that is widely regarded among the casting community as "flawless". She has also perfected numerous other accents and is a skilled mimic, which further increases her suitability to fill a wide range of characters of various nationalities. Through her professional training in weapons and martial arts as the lead female in both Jarhead 3: The Siege (2016), The Perfect Weapon (2016) and "Snapshot", Sasha is fast gaining a strong reputation as an action heroine whilst being equally comfortable using her comedic timing in roles for Fuller House (2016) and The Royals (2015). Sasha, who has proven herself to be a versatile and talented actor in a wide variety of roles and genres, relishes learning new physical skills for projects and, indeed, embraces the challenges that such roles bring, including surfing the huge winter waves in South Africa for Blue Crush 2 (2011) and learning multiple dance disciplines and styles for the lead in a dance movie. Sasha, who competitively represented the South of England in High Board Diving and who is also a former District Trampolining champion, has already had a diverse career encompassing projects which saw her take the lead in several successful independent feature films, UK television series as an actress, presenter and herself as well as commercials, modeling assignments, as a Government-backed singer and also as the "face" and Worldwide Ambassador of two companies in the UK and Dubai.

Personal Quotes (10)

I was always interested in law at school; it was a great outlet to argue but not make anyone angry!
Most of the roles that I go for are Americans, so the first thing I had to do was pin down the American accent - which is obviously in 'Blue Crush 2.'
I live a fantastic life; I have fantastic friends - I stay out of the Hollywood stuff as much as I can because it's so much fun that you don't want to go down that path; you just want to work.
I cleanse, tone and moisturize twice a day. I exfoliate once a week and carry makeup wipes in the car for freshening up.
TV is like high school because you go into these series, and the people that work there have been doing it for seven years, like 'One Tree Hill,' so you are going into what is already a family - if you are accepted by that family, then it's fantastic fun.
I put things in perspective and trust that everything is in its right place, be grateful that I'm healthy. Then throw on a cap and some killer red lipstick and gloss, that always seems to do the trick.
My hair is very fine, so I use Tigi Bed Head Small Talk before I blow dry for volume, and I'm a firm believer in Tigi Rockaholic dry shampoo to keep volume throughout the day.
I love unique things that not everyone has. I believe its all about how you wear an outfit, not how much it costs or where it's from. Elegance is the key.
It's one of the main things that I love about my job. You are never playing yourself, so I really love that I get to be someone else, play a different character and take on that persona, but I also have to take on their qualifications.
I make sure that I laugh as much as possible, as it's the best exercise, and if I'm really feeling the need to do some exercise, I'll go out with my best girls and dance the night away.
