Mini Bio (1)

Mallory Jansen is an Australian-British actress, born and raised in Melbourne. She recently starred in FOX's ballet themed dramedy series "The Big Leap" from 20th Television Studio and producers Liz Heldens (Friday Night Lights), Sue Nagle (Pam & Tommy), and Jason Winer (Modern Family). Mallory studied drama in New York at Stella Adler and T. Schreiber Studios, being coached by some of the world's best acting, accent, analysis, method and film teachers. After completing her studies, Mallory returned to Australia where she quickly scored roles on a string of mini- series hits. However, it was her role playing supermodel Helena Christensen on "Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS" that made a name for her in Australian TV. Upon moving to Los Angeles she immediately landed a recurring role in Freeform's "Young & Hungry", shortly followed by another recurring role on Freeform's hit show "Baby Daddy". Mallory then went on to play the starring role of Madalena in ABC's medieval musical comedy series "Galavant", written and created by Dan Fogelman (This Is Us). The series featured live musical performances by Mallory from award-winning composer and Broadway legend, Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast). Jansen garnered critical acclaim for her portrayal of the sharp-tongued and hilariously evil Queen. After wrapping the second season of "Galavant", Mallory landed a lead role in ABC's large scale drama "Triangle", as well as the fourth season of ABC's hit series "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Over the course of the season, she portrayed three different roles, including the iconic Marvel comic book character, Madame Hydra. Other TV appearances include "This Is Us", "American Housewife", and the recurring role of Special Agent Margo James in Mark Wahlberg's action-packed drama "Shooter" on USA Network.

Personal Quotes (21)

I would like to spend Christmas in different countries all over the world. I love seeing how different cultures celebrate the holidays in their own unique ways.
I love doing eyes - my signature look is a cat eye. I think it's so feminine, and it reminds me of old Hollywood.
I love the smell of a real Christmas tree - also, my mum's Christmas pudding with brandy sauce.
I've never had a cold Christmas, as I always spend it back home in Australia.
It's funny because when I'm outside Australia, I never get to do my Australian accent in anything. It's always a Danish accent or an English accent or an American accent.
Growing up, I was always in my high school musicals and everything, but I kind of stopped doing all that when I finished school and acting became my main priority.
Most days, I still feel like I need to be wearing mascara, eyeliner, have my eyebrows done, have on bronzer - the whole thing! I may as well do it all.
I was doing those roles on ABC Family late in the year, and at the same time, I was auditioning for 'Galavant.' But 'Galavant' was quite a wide casting call. I wasn't recommended or anything. It just kind of happened.
I used to know all the lyrics to all the songs from 'The Phantom of the Opera.'
Growing up, I was in all the musicals and everything... I'd come home from school and bash out a few Whitney Houston songs.
If I'm going to the gym or the shops to get food, then I don't need to do anything - I'll just put on a pair of sunnies, and that's enough.
Jimmy Grants is my first stop every time I go home to Australia. They make the best souvlakis you have ever tasted.
I have admired David Bromley's work for years. He possesses such a wild and vivid imagination and really sees the beauty in everything.
Rome is possibly my favorite city in the world. I have such fond memories there - most of them food related.
Doing comedy is one of the best gifts in life.
You honestly can't go wrong with All Saints. I live in their leather!
My dad likes to recite the story of 'Pablo the Donkey' before dinner to teach us the real meaning of Christmas. Every year, it's the same; every year, we cringe!
My parents would always tell you that I was the crazy princess growing up. I was a drama queen.
I think every woman in their life wants to give a good face smack.
To be honest, I grew up with Alan Menken's music.
Long hair, for me, is actually less maintenance. I went through a phase when I was kid where I wanted a pixie cut. At the time I thought it looked awesome, but I look back and I looked like such a dork! When I have short hair, I feel like I have to blow dry it, or it doesn't sit properly.
