Biography

Jenna Boyd seems to have been destined for stardom from a young age. When she was just two years old her mother entered her in a modeling search. The agents there told her mother to find an agency to represent her. It didn't take long before she became a child model, featured in TV commercials and print ads, and her agents recommended her parents take her to Los Angeles for auditions. She has not looked back since. In 2001, the first year of her performing career, she appeared on three different TV programs, "The Geena Davis Show," "Titus," and the sitcom"Just Shoot Me." She followed it up the next year with four programs, including forensic crime-drama "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and the acclaimed drama "Six Feet Under." Her first movie roles came the next year, including a major part in the western-thriller "The Missing," which was directed by Ron Howard, and starred Tommy Lee Jones. Although that movie was a financial failure, her performance as the young daughter Dot brought her to the attention of a wider audience, and led to her being cast in another major role, playing a girl hired to help an aging child star experience his lost youth, in the 2003 comedy "Dickie Roberts: Former Childstar," starring David Spade. More recently she appeared on the supernatural drama "Ghost Whisperer" and "Criminal Minds."
