Jessica Leigh Morris
Actress- New York/Los Angeles
Jessica Leigh Morris is a bi-coastal actress originally hailing from Pittsburgh, PA. Growing up on musicals, Jessica credits her career in the performing arts to Ms. Kathy Bates and her performance in the 1999 TV movie Annie which truly inspired Jessica at the young age of five. From then on she would perform original and self-written plays and musicals in her basement enlisting the help of her unwilling younger siblings. Such hits included Planet Macaroni and The Orphanage. Her middle school and high school years were filled with theatre experience where she played roles such as "Party Guest #1" in A Christmas Carol and "Usher" in her high school production of Annie (a true disappointment since she had been prepping for the role of Ms. Hannigan for years). Accepting that her dance skills were severely lacking, Jessica applied for acting programs at colleges and was accepted to New York University. She graduated from NYU with a BFA in Drama after studying at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting and Stonestreet Studios. Jessica is a bicoastal actress and can work as a local hire on both coasts!
