Born and raised in San Diego, Jolene Blalock left home at the early age of 17 to model in Europe and Asia. Modeling brought her to Los Angeles in 1998 and after booking a few commercials, she became interested in acting.
Jolene is one of those unique actors that walks into a room and you immediately know is a star. Her mysticism, along with the fact that this incredibly stunning Southern California native can truly act is giving her a chance that very few actors have – make a living doing what they truly love.
From what we’ve seen of Jolene Blalock from interviews and online, she is an animated and lively woman. Her obvious delight about what she is discussing is shown by her friendly eyes, beautiful smile and carefree attitude. She is someone that’s truly fascinating to listen to, and stare at!, who comes across naturally on the camera. Talented, intelligent and attractive, Blalock has the uncanny ability to capture the eyes of her audience.
Blalock can currently be seen on the new Star Trek series Enterprise as Science Officer, Sub-Commander T’Pol, the strict yet sensual Vulcan. It was a role that she nearly passed up three times before reading the script. Blalock admits, “Had I passed on this…it would’ve been the dumbest move of my life. Talk about regrets! I’m so fortunate to be chosen for this part.” As a Trek fan herself, she fit perfectly in the series.
Date of Birth: 5th March 1975.
