Jenn was recently featured in Constellation Magazine! Read the interview below, or at the source here.

Jaclyn Bethany: Hi, Jenn! Where did you grow up, and where are you currently based?
Jenn Murray: I grew up in Belfast, in Northern Ireland. I went to drama school in Dublin and then I moved to London. I spend a lot of time in Los Angeles and I love New York, but I am based in London at the moment.

JB: How did you get into acting? Was performing always a part of your childhood? 
JM: I loved to play dress-up as a child in my home. I would do impersonations to make my family laugh. I enjoyed drama in school, but I was quite shy, never putting myself forward for school plays. In school acting seemed to be about the loudest people in the room, which I was not. I knew as a teenager that I would love to be an actor. But that was all it was: a sentence, an idea. However, when I was 18 and filling in my UCAS forms I had to ask myself a serious question: Was I really going to try to be an actor, and if so, how? I deferred a place at university to keep my parents at peace and in my gap year, I auditioned for drama schools. With the offer on the table, it was easier to convince my parents that I was serious about acting.

JB: Who are some performers you admired growing up and why?
JM: Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson, Holly Hunter, Joe Pesci, Goldie Hawn and Daniel Day Lewis.  In my house, we regularly watched Sleepless in Seattle, Moonstruck, The Firm, My Cousin Vinny…. watching films was an event in my house. I remember if I was unwell or upset over something at school, I could watch Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan and everything would feel better.

Jenn was recently interviewed by The Times; you can sign up for an account for free to read the interview here. The interviewer focuses on money/financial things and asks Jenn if she’s profligate or frugal, and Jenn states she’s more of a minimalist and travels too much to accumulate a lot of things. When asked what her biggest splurge was, she says she bought a vintage chair for £400 (almost $500US) and then had to carry it home. She also admits she got expensive items from a celebrity gifting suite for free (like makeup, perfume, and electronics) and gave it all away to charity.
