July 12, 2013 - PRLog -- With the great success of the hit Disney Channel show “Jessie”, Jennifer Veal took some time out of her busy schedule to talk to CASTINGHUB about what’s she’s doing next. With the episodes from the second season of her TV show already aired, Jennifer is not slowing down. She told CASTINGHUB that she has gotten interested into writing and is collaborating with YouTube sensation Lucas Cruikshank for a new show.
Born in Coventry, England, Jennifer always knew that she wanted to be an actress saying, “I love the buzz you get from working with people who’ve been in the industry for such a long time and just making people laugh is such a wonderful feeling.” She made her West End debut at Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at The London Palladium at the age of 11 and secured a spot at the Sylvia Young Theatre School in London a year later. Today she continues to keep working and doing what she loves.
Her role as Nanny Agatha in Jessie is a fan favorite. She is an unattractive, arrogant British nanny who frequently locks horns with Jessie and the Ross children. Agatha has a twin sister, Angela (also played by Jennifer) who is even more dishonest and tries to steal Jessie's job, but the kids and Jessie stand up to her and she goes back to England.
In the interview, Jennifer adds, “I moved halfway around the world, to be honest, to pursue my dream. I think it’s wonderful that you [CASTINGHUB] give these kids from outside of Los Angeles, New York and Chicago other opportunities that they wouldn’t necessarily get and I think that’s wonderful.” CASTINGHUB is glad to see that Jennifer’s career is flourishing and that she can continue to do what she loves.
