Biography

A vivacious blonde presence on daytime and primetime television for over a decade, Emmy nominee Jessica Collins established herself as a popular player on the soap opera "Loving" (ABC, 1983-1995) before breaking into feature work, like "Catch Me If You Can" (2002), as well as episodic television, such as "Tru Calling" (Fox, 2003-2005). Though frequently cast for her physical appeal, Collins sought out and often succeeded at more challenging roles, like her drug addict character on "Tru Calling," which led to more work on television and the occasional film part. But attempts to mint Collins as a primetime star on "Unscripted" (HBO, 2005) and "Scoundrels" (CBS, 2010) met with failure, spurring her to delve into a second career as a chef while returning to daytime on "The Young and the Restless" (CBS, 1973- ). The steady work on the venerable soap and her growing popularity as a celebrity chef not only suited Collins' ambitions, but also minted her as a much-loved figure in two very distinct mediums.
