I’m open on Instagram because I’m that type of person. I feel comfortable being open. If ever I feel nervous about something I’ll quite happily talk to a stranger about it, in a non-creepy way. I find it quite calming. It makes it easier for me to cope with it. I’ve learned that I don’t have to turn it into this huge secret – that makes it worse. So I’m open, it’s not a big deal. It normalises it. For example, if I go into meetings now and I’m open about it nobody ever has anything negative or judgmental to say about it. People are only very supportive about it. It was especially positive working with Kelly Oxford on Pink Skies Ahead. The film attracted a whole cast and crew that related to anxiety.” – Jessica on being open and on living with anxiety.

The story is told with somebody who is coping with it. You see her as being someone who’s somewhat capable. This isn’t somebody who’s falling apart. I want to play flawed women, but in the package of what women actually do, which is put a face on and get on with it. It’s something that’s part of being a woman and something I want to put in the work that I find. It’s so complicated and amazing being a woman and I just want to find that in the roles.” – Jessica on playing Winona in Kelly Oxford’s Pink Skies Ahead movie.
