Jessica Sutton has done well for herself in her career to this point. The South African native has made an impact in Hollywood. Her notable roles in the Freeform series Motherland: Fort Salem, the wildly popular Netflix movie The Kissing Booth and one of my personal recent favorites, Escape Room. Now, Jessica stars alongside Megan Fox on Rogue.
I was fortunate to have a chance to speak to Jessica about working on Rogue in her home territory of South Africa, shooting the film. Her experience working with Megan Fox. How she made her way from South Africa to Hollywood. All that and more.
I had a blast chatting with Jessica. She full of energy and very personable. Ok, so I had a feeling she was flirting with me a bit during the interview! Was she? I hope that’s true. She’s incredibly beautiful, super talented and sweet. Let’s be honest here, clearly I have a crush on her, haha.
It was fun hearing about her experience working on Rogue in South Africa, where she’s from and where she was Zooming (I think that’s a term now) me from. I can imagine how cool that be to work on a big movie in your familiar surroundings.
She had praise for Megan Fox and the advice she received from Megan. I also found it notable how she mentioned about talking to Megan about dealing with fame. If Jessica continues on her trajectory, she can very well end up having to deal with that sort of level of fame.
Jessica has done really well around with her career. Establishing herself in the industry, coming all the way from South Africa, that’s a heck of a feat in itself. I’ve enjoyed her work in Freeform’s Motherland: For Salem. She’s terrific in that show. Jessica was in the first The Kissing Booth. She had a smaller role in Escape Room, one of better recent horror thrillers. She’s certainly an actress to be on the lookout for.
I’m glad I had a chance to speak to Jessica and have a great fun conversation.
