When you think of Amy Jackson, you may not immediately associate her with the north of England. Instead, she is known primarily for her work in Indian cinema. In a recent interview at the Red Sea Film Festival studio, the British actress and model shared insights into her journey and what lies ahead for her career after a five-year hiatus.
At the tender age of 16, Jackson made her debut in the world of Indian cinema. Reflecting on her early experiences, she stated, “When you’re that young, you embrace it. I fully embraced that world; it was amazing.” Her portrayal of Saturn Girl in the popular CBS series Supergirl was especially memorable and remains one of her favorite roles to date.
Affinity for Sci-Fi and Adventure
With a taste for the extraordinary, Jackson expressed her fascination with aliens, space, and parallel universes. She enthusiastically shared her willingness to don a cape or venture into outer space for future roles. Her genuine passion for the unknown sets her apart and opens up possibilities for unique and exciting projects in the future.
Jackson experienced a significant decrease in screen time over the past five years, owing to various factors including the global pandemic and her responsibilities as a parent. However, she is poised to make a comeback. Currently, two Bollywood films are in post-production, with another project lined up. The latter project is a U.S. series set to begin filming in the first quarter of next year.
In Reliance’s upcoming sports action film “Crakk – Jeetegaa Toh Jiyegaa!,” Jackson portrays a Europol agent. The movie follows the journey of a man from the slums of Mumbai to the underground world of extreme sports. She also stars in “Mission Chapter I” alongside Arjun Vijay, playing the role of a British guard at London’s Wandsworth prison. This film promises a thrilling blend of action and suspense, featuring a daring escape attempt.
Amy Jackson’s evolution from a British actress to an acclaimed star in Indian cinema showcases her versatility and passion for the craft. Through her roles, she has captivated audiences with her talent and commitment. As she revives her career with upcoming projects and diverse roles, fans can anticipate the resurgence of a talented and captivating performer. The upcoming releases of the Bollywood films and the U.S. series will undoubtedly demonstrate Jackson’s ability to adapt and excel in different genres, further solidifying her place in the world of international cinema.
