Jessica “Jessy” Schram is an actress and musician probably best known for her roles on the shows “Falling Skies” and “Once Upon a Time.” Most recently, she guested on the show “Mad Men.”
Jessy Schram said of her career, “I’m the one where you’re thinking, ‘I know I’ve seen her. I would have no idea where.’” She knew since she was about five years old that she wanted to be an actor. “I always put on my own plays and filmed my own commercials and TV spots with our VHS recorder.”
When she was 10, Jessy Schram was signed by a Chicago agency for acting and modeling. “I have to credit my mom in a lot of that. I had asked her if I could be on ‘real’ TV, and she was responsible for getting me an agent. And through that it was really a team effort in the sense that I always wanted to do it. But when you’re only like 12 years old, you can’t drive yourself…so my mom was my partner in crime.”
As for the jobs she’s had over the years, she said, “I’ve always liked the jobs I took; I tend to like manual labor. My mom and dad own a printing company, so growing up I would always stack shirts in the warehouse.”
Jessy Schram landed national commercials. “I pretty much learned through commercials.” After she graduated from high school, and at the age of 18, she moved to Los Angeles and landed in a variety of roles, including parts on “Veronica Mars,” “Medium” and “CSI: Miami.” She said, “Every project has been so different in the way that you learn and what you learn from people.”

To her fans, she said she is filled with gratitude. “It’s such a blessing to hear that you’ve touched somebody who has enjoyed your work.” Jessy Schram is currently single and resides in Los Angeles, California.
