Biography

Although Jacinda Barrett was born in Australia, her all-American good looks and convincing accent have paved the way for numerous acting roles in the states. Tall and slim, with long honey blonde hair and a freckled, fresh-faced appearance that belied her sophisticated poise, Barrett left her home of Brisbane, Queensland at age 17 to pursue a modeling career on an international level. She hit the big time several years later in 1995 when she was chosen to be one of the seven strangers making up the cast of the fourth installment of MTV's "The Real World," set in London. This proved a major coup, offering the up and comer enviable exposure while the series showcased the ups and downs of her career and personal life. She was named one of People's "The 50 Most Beautiful People in the World" list, and her visibility led to acting work beginning in 1998 when she had a guest role as sorceress Medea on the syndicated series "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys."
