"When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid."
Hi! I'm Jazzy Ellis.
I am a SAG Award-winning stunt actor for film and TV with over 75 credits under my belt, and I am a member of the TV Academy (Emmys). Wow!—that was an impressive sentence, but you know what? I am nowhere near the finish line—ha!—as if there were a finish line. My goal is to always improve my craft and to show continued progress in my career as a performer, while guiding others who are on similar journeys. I also wish to inspire ambitious womxn in all industries and in all walks of life to pursue their wildest dreams and to seek their most exciting adventures.
I got to be interviewed by some really great folks over the years. Here are some of my favorites:
