JESSICA MATTEN
Actress and producer

The long silhouette of the young woman stood out from a small group in front of the immense doors of the Picasso museum. Lovely like a “Jessica” (Chastain, Lange, Biel, Alba), leaning over a map of Paris, she was waiting for a taxi which quickly grabbed her and took her far from the Marais district.

However, we had time to talk and photograph this Jessica to ask her if she was a model. To which, with a bright smile and without false modesty, the young woman replied: “I am an actress. ".

In fact, Jessica Matten - that's her name - appears in Frontier, the Netflix series where she plays alongside Jason Momoa as well as in Empty Man (Disney/Fox studios). Producer of the series Tribal, she also plays a recurring role in Burden of Truth.

Furthermore, she belongs to a mixed race lineage, resulting from a mix between native Indians and French Canadians. One of his ancestors, Cuthbert Grant, is a rebel hero who distinguished himself at the famous Battle of Seven Oaks (Battle of the Seven Oaks, in 1816), against the Canadian government for the rights of the native peoples.

In Paris, the Canadian came to see the land of her ancestors. By finishing in style, le Marais.
