Dynamic Canadian actor Jennifer Spence is taking the small screen by storm with appearances on some of television’s top shows. Jennifer is currently shooting the new Shaw Media series “Continuum”; a one-hour drama-action series about a policewoman from 2077 who travels back in time and teams up with a present day cop to track down escaped convicts from her future. The series features an impressive cast, with stars including Rachel Nichols (Criminal Minds, Alias), Victor Webster (Castle, Melrose Place), and director Jon Cassar (24, The Kennedys) at the helm.
Jennifer plays the recurring role of Betty Robertson, a cop and IT specialist, on the new show. The series is currently in production in Vancouver and is set to air on Showcase in the late spring.
Jennifer’s other upcoming television appearances include guest starring roles in the Emmy-nominated AMC mystery-drama “The Killing”, and FOX’s new popular drama-action series “Alcatraz”. Her exciting roles on both of these shows will be seen in the spring.
Most recently, the versatile actor was seen as Jean Holiday in the CW series “Supernatural”. Her recent episode saw Jennifer in the role of a quirky shift manager of Plucky Pennywhistle’s Magical Menagerie who comes under investigation for murder.
No stranger to a busy performing schedule, Jennifer has been balancing film and television roles throughout her successful career. Her recent television roles include Logo’s comedy series “Exes and Ohs” and the multiple award-winning Syfy series “Stargate Universe” for which she was nominated for a Leo Award for Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series two years in a row.
The acting bug bit Jennifer at the early age of seven while performing as an orphan in a summer camp production of ‘Annie’ belting out ‘It’s a Hard Knock Life’. After being told repeatedly how challenging the world of showbiz could be, Jennifer spent her high-school years trying to imagine what career path she could choose and still have the same passion she had for acting. It was after performing in a production of ‘The Crucible’ that she could no longer imagine a life without it, and because of this, we have come to know and love her as one of Canada’s stars to watch.
