Deadly Beauty: Horror’s Scream Queens and Rising Talent: Jazmine Colleen
“I was born in Santiago, Chile and yes I am full 100% Chileana, to where I came to the beautiful U.S. where I spent the first few years in San Jose then to small town of Oakdale. Let’s say it’s one of those stories where a band geek girl with the braces and didn’t make the Cheerleading squad, that no one looked at or who was interested in, became one of the newest biggest upcoming performers in the Central Valley, (I was a late bloomer) to the biggest block parties locally to night clubs from Sacramento to Fresno. Now I have been introduced to a new level of entertainment: acting. Now this is my first film, so please don’t be to hard on me but this film opened my eyes to how much more I want to be involved even if it’s the smallest role. The experience with the crew and having director Paul Ragsdale helping me through it and it was an experience I will always remember. Streets of Vengeance will really get you on the edge of your seat.”*
Location: Home base for me would be Central Valley California where I grew up in the Cowboy Capital of the World, not the best place to grow up, but what do you expect from a small town.”
1. How did you get into the industry?
I kinda fell into this industry! I started out as a Professional Dancer for nightclubs, block parties, festivals, etc. Then I started modeling on the side to help my Dance career and then Boom my friend Anthony Toomata, actor from Cinco de Mayo suggested me to Paul Ragsdale and Angie De Alba for Streets of Vengeance film. This is my first on screen film and it was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to do something like this again.
2. What Scream Queen inspired you most?
Wow, that’s a difficult one. It would be a toss up between Jamie Lee Curtis in Halloween and Prom Night and Neve Campbell in Scream, one of the all time horror flicks of my generation, but I can’t keep from the classic Jamie Lee.
3. What are the next couple projects you are working on?
As for future projects, I will be working on Modesto’s biggest block party, X Fest which will have an estimated 10k people this year. I will be performing on stage as a Dancer. I will also be working on another Indie film called Internal Struggles with Director Definne Un-Tame and am always taking bookings.
