Jillian Easton draws audiences in with her sincere and natural performances. Reminiscent of Rachel McAdams and Julia Roberts, with roles ranging from the “free spirited muse” to the “ruby in the rough,” Jillian always brings great vulnerability, empathy, and intelligence to each character. She has a great attitude, a thoughtful “Lilly Tomlin” sense of humor and a keen understanding of what is required of the most compelling portrayals.
Star of the international award-winning indie comedy Fishnet, Jillian began her performing career quite young as a singer. It was in Europe where she began studying acting, taking classes at La Scuola D'Imbarco outside of Florence, Italy while continuing to study music at L'Accademia Musicale di Firenze. Jillian returned from her year abroad accepted into the prestigious South Coast Repertory Professional Intensive where she was cited by program director Karen Hensel as “an excellent, intelligent, intuitive actress, who was unofficially chosen by Producing Director David Emmes as 'best PI student.'” Performing throughout her senior year, she graduated from Sarah Lawrence College with a concentration in Comparative Literature and Performing Arts.
Jillian moved out to Los Angeles to pursue acting full-time. Within two months she was cast in her first film and play. Jillian has since booked over twenty films, including the Lionsgate feature Virus X, as well as the Scy-Fy Channel original movie Mega Piranha. She also can be seen in the two-time Telly Award winning webseries Front Seat Chronicles. On stage, Jillian has performed in five plays/musicals throughout Los Angeles, as well as co-wrote and starred in a two-woman cabaret.
She currently resides in West Hollywood and is kept happily busy with auditions, performing, and continuing her studies at the Beverly Hills Playhouse, Edge Performing Arts Center, and with her vocal coaches Marvalee Cariaga and Rick Podell.
