Who is Jessica Amlee?

Born under the water sign of Cancer, on 17 July 1994, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Jesica Amlee is a 25-year-old Canadian film and television actress. No one in her home country could imagine “Heartland”, one of the best family dramas in recent years, without her portrayal of Malory, a character seminal to many of the show’s plotlines. As a part of her role, Jessica had to portray a woman who could never learn how to mind her own business, always getting into trouble for meddling in other people’s lives. Other than “Heartland”, she is known for appearances in other renowned TV series such as “City Rush”, “Darkish Angel”, “Smallville”, “The Twilight Zone” and more. Now a seasoned veteran with significant appearances both on the silver screen and on television, Jessica is one of the most famous Canadian actresses. Her accomplishments at the tender age of 25 are nothing short of impressive, signifying that her future’s so bright that she will need to wear sunglasses.

Early Life and Education: Growing Up in Vancouver

When they had their first daughter, Douglas Amlee and his wife Steffie were immediately aware that the little girl was going to be special. Ever since she started walking, young Jessica harbored an interest in acting and other performing arts. As all they wanted to do was make their daughter happy, Steffie and Douglas fully supported her quest to perfect her acting skills and become a star. The family would spend hours watching various Canadian and American shows, studying the moves of talented actors. It would also seem that art is simply in Jessica’s genes, as famed jazz saxophonist P.J. Jerry was actually her grandfather. With this Juno Award-winning musician as one of her idols, Amlee was ready to do whatever it took to turn her dreams into reality. After graduating from Kanaka Creek Elementary School, she consulted her parents about what to do next. Together, they realized it would be best if Jessica would forego her high school education, with a complete focus on acting. Despite the obvious risk involving her future, the talent that this young lady displayed was a good enough reason for this plan.

Career Beginnings: A Prominent Child Actress

Unlike most of her peers, Jessica was ready to put in work even before she was ten. Thus, her first acting credit dates back to 2001, where she assumed the role of Annie Owen in an episode of “Mysterious Ways”. This allowed her to be noticed by notable producers and directors and resulted in three more roles that same year, in “The Outer Limits”, “Dark Angel” and “Smallville”. With unconditional support from her family, Amlee became more prominent as a child actress, with roles in “Andromeda”, “Just Cause”, “They” and the “Twilight Zone” marking this part of her career. The quality which set her apart from most of her peers at this point was a deep understanding of her own capabilities, which is usually something teenagers have difficulty grasping.

Afterwards, we could see her in “Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2”, “Stargate Atlantis”, “The Dead Zone”, and more than ten other appearances in this time period. It’s also worth mentioning the quality of her performances in “Chestnut: Hero of Central Park” and “Eve and the Fire Horse”. One would think she was close to falling off, but Jessica made heads turn with her skills, resulting in a true breakthrough.

Becoming a True Star: Heartland, Greenhouse Academy and Life Afterwards

In 2007, she was cast as Mallory Wells in the hot new family drama entitled “Heartland”. Based on the book series of the same name by Lauren Brooke, the show follows the life and times of Amy and Loy Flemming, two sisters who experience life with all its highs and lows while living on a remote Canadian ranch.

In this series, 13-year-old Jessica would truly blossom as an actress, in a part which required her to be mischievous, even malicious at times. Despite the impressive number of roles she had assumed by that time, it was as Mallory that Jessica showcased her versatility, and the ability to grow while being in character. Through 2017, she grew up in front of our very eyes, making an undeniable mark on Canadian television. From 2017 to 2018, she played Jackie Sanders in the immensely popular Netflix show “Greenhouse Academy”. There are no indications about her further plans, other than an announced appearance in an episode of “For All Mankind”, which is in post-production as of July 2019. Given the fact that she is only 25-years-old, Jessica surely has plenty left in her tank.

Personal Life: Does Jessica Amlee Have a Boyfriend? Is She Married?

As for her romantic involvements prior to the current one, there is almost no information across all of the credible sources that could accurately describe this part of her life. Up to this point, it has been Jessica’s choice to keep news about her partners almost completely private, and thus she hasn’t yet come forward to address most of these inquiries. At this time, it is known that Jessica’s boyfriend is David Jones Roberts, and though the two have been together for some time, they have tried to keep their relationship under wraps, so that they wouldn’t be harassed by the media and distracted by various rumors. The two haven’t expressed any intentions concerning a potential wedding or starting a family.

Jessica currently resides in Los Angeles, California, but she also spends a lot of time in her hometown of Vancouver. She has one sibling, a brother named Mason. Since 2003, she has been a known philanthropist, with donations to several children’s hospitals on the North American continent.

Body Measurements: How Tall is Jessica Amlee?

Net Worth: How Rich is Jessica Amlee?

Have you ever wondered how affluent Jessica really is? According to credible sources, she has a net worth of approximately $15 million, as of mid-2019, accumulated by starting her career at a very young age and never refusing to challenge herself in terms of acting. It’s likely that most of her revenue comes from her time in “Heartland”, and several other high-profile shows in which she appeared as a child. If she continues to work hard and build her brand, we will most likely see her net worth increase in the foreseeable future.

Social Media Presence

Thanks to the ever expanding grasp that social media has on worldwide audiences, it is in the best interests of most celebrities to keep their fans informed about their activities and thus sustain and potentially increase their ratings and profit. Jessica herself is no stranger to this popular trend, as her dedication to posting updates on her public profiles and engaging with her fans is at an all-time high. Her Twitter account has 13,000 followers , and her Instagram account 170,000 fans.
