Jamie Lynn Sigler

If we had to choose one phrase to describe Jamie-Lynn Sigler, it would have to be a phrase right out of the musical RUTHLESS: ...born to sing and dance! By the age of 3, she had already asked to be enrolled in dancing school. Like all other girls in her kindergarten class, Jamie signed up for all kinds of activities: soccer, arts & crafts, etc. But it was obvious to see that her real passion was performing!

At 7 years old, she expressed the desire to broaden her training and soon added singing and acting lessons as well. She enrolled in a local musical theater class, where she learned how to prepare for auditions. At the same time, she made the Gifted and Talented class in her elementary school. She was always reminded that school was a priority and that if she wanted to continue to audition, she had to be sure that she would be able to juggle her school work and the demands of show biz. Soon she was performing at local theaters on Long Island in lead roles like ANNIE at Hofstra University. A tape of this performance was sent to Lois Miller, of Star Talent Management who soon signed her. Jamie was on her way!

While in the 7th grade, she landed her first professional role as Young Mary/Janey in the musical version of IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE. This was to be a 29-state national tour and it would take 5 months of her school year. It was a very important family decision, since it not only involved Jamie being away at the age of 12, but also it would affect her school work. It turned out to be the most positive experience in her life. Not only did Jamie learn to do independent work, but also learned to use her time wisely and proceeded to read all of the required reading for the remainder of the year.

While maintaining an A average all through high school she has been able to juggle many activities including 5 dance classes a week, singing lessons, student teaching at a local regional theater, commercials, CD ROMS, musical recordings, student films and many theatrical productions including the title role in THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK, Lucy in THE GOODBYE GIRL, and Dorothy in THE WIZARD OF OZ. She also appeared in the film BROOKLYN STATE OF MIND as Young Angie and as Natalie in the film Campfire Stories.

More recently, Jamie has branched out into the music business--Here To Heaven was just released in November of 2001. She was also seen in the touring company of CINDERELLA this past summer.
