She Worked as a Teaching Assistant Before Becoming an Actor
After leaving university, Jessie began to spend her days teaching special needs children. In a roundtable interview, the actor told POPSUGAR that she'd been well aware of the Shadow and Bone franchise before joining the cast, thanks to her students. "Before becoming an actor, I dropped out of university, and I was working as a teaching assistant in a secondary school. This was the age group that Shadow and Bone is very popular with, and I remember lots of my students reading the books."
