It’s been an absolute pleasure attending the 2019 Cannes Film Festival - thank you for having me!
SEMI-FINALIST and OFFICIAL SELECTION @ Anaheim International Film Festival and Short to the Point Festival
…more love and 2 more Official Selections from the international festival circuit for my little nugget of a short-film, which I wrote, shot and edited from the heart and the gut.
I am deeply grateful to the ANAHEIM International Film Festival (USA) for selecting me as a semi-finalist, and to SHORT to the Point Festival (Romania) for including me in their Official festival line-up in the category “Smartphone Short-Film”.
Thank you! :) J x
What a joy! My micro-short “180 km/empty” has just won its first award! I received an Honorable Mention at FLASH FILM FESTIVAL Berlin and am chuffed to bits about this!
“180 km/empty” was a totally spontaneous, no-budget labour of love - a story I just had to tell and which I decided to go about in an absolutely minimalistic fashion - no frills, no CGI, just me, the story, and my smartphone. ;-)
Chuffed to bits to share that the German dubbed version of SPIKE LEE’S award-winning feature “BLACKKKLANSMAN” has been nominated for the DEUTSCHER SYNCHRONPREIS, the German dubbing award in the category “BEST DRAMA”.

It was a joy to be working as a voice actress on this project and I am very grateful to have been part of such a talented team at Interopa Synchron Berlin. Thank you!
It was an honour and a joy to atttend the 2019 Victress Awards in Berlin. Thank you to Sonja Fusati for the invitation. I was left deeply inspired by the many outstanding, brilliantly talented and (com)passionate women who were honoured that night!
I am SO happy for the creative team behind Amazon Prime’s comedy series “Der Lack ist ab”. They will be awarded this year’s Austrian ROMY AWARD in the category “Best Digital Format”. Congrats to creators Kai WIESINGER, Bettina ZIMMERMANN and the team at PHANTOMFILM!
It was such a pleasure to be involved in this fab series as an actress, so I couldn’t be happier! :)))
Beyond excited: my latest offering “180 km/empty” has been selected for the OFFICIAL COMPETITION at the BERLIN FLASH FILM FESTIVAL. This festival has a specific focus on short storytelling forms and micro-shorts - so I am absolutely delighted to have been selected!
ABOUT “180 km/empty”:
All it takes is beautiful fake smile to hide an injured soul. In under 2 minutes, 180 km/empty follows a woman’s journey from her high-achieving smile into the reality of her burn-out.

Make sure to check out excerpts of this sweet little romcom via my official international demo-reel!
Why did I become an actress? So that I can dress up in fancy historical costumes, such as this gorgeous “Tootsie”-style outfit complete with shoulderpads and big glasses, and play fierce female characters who hustle hard! ;-)
No, seriously: it was so much fun playing a 1980s newsreader for acclaimed German crime series “Die Spezialisten” (Ufa Fiction / ZDF) - if you haven’t watched it yet, you can catch my episode (“Nazigold”) on the iplayer until the 23rd of April 2019: https://www.zdf.de/serien/die-spezialisten-im-namen-der-opfer/nazigold-104.html
It’s so much fun to play a baddie…. especially as a woman! I’m delighted to share a few behind the scenes snaps of me getting into character to play an evil commander in bold scifi thriller “The Electric Dream”!
I don’t want to spoil anything, so keep an eye on this page, and I hope to be back with updates once this baby’s is out in the world and about to be shown! J x
What a joy and absolute honour: my 99-second short-film “180 km/empty” was shortlisted at the prestigious 99-Fire-Film-Awards - Germany’s biggest short-film competition, which runs in parallel to the Berlin International Film Festival! This is just beyond amazing and I am grateful to the jury who selected my entry out of more than 3000 submissions!
WOW. I am speechless - and chuffed to bits. My little Hammersmith romance about two love-struck, workaholic barristers has made the OFFICIAL SELECTION at the Los Angeles Indie ShortFest!
Thank you so much for the jury and for this lovely opportunity to share my story! It feels like a beautiful next step, after my script for “mom + dad” was previously nominated at the FUNNY WOMEN AWARDS LONDON in February 2018.
Ah, the joys of the showreel - I seriously love this part, and am chuffed to bits to be able to share a glimpse of my work as an international actress. My new showreel is online: fun, snappy, multilingual, dark, romantic, and everything in between. :) Happy viewing! :)
THANK YOU and DANKE to the GERMAN FILM ACADEMY for inviting me to this fantastic awards ceremony dedicated to young up and coming filmmakers and talent in the German-speaking market. It was such a joy and I genuinely enjoyed all my encounters and conversations that night!
