Born and raised in Langkawi, Jesseca is one of Mediacorp’s Seven Princesses – a bevy of young actresses who rose to fame in the early 2000s, which includes Jeanette Aw, Rui En, Joanne Peh and Felicia Chin. A former beauty queen and model, Jesseca was talent-scouted by a Mediacorp producer in 2004, who offered her a role in popular swimming drama The Champion.

The rest, as they say, is history: Jesseca went on to win Most Popular Newcomer at the 2005 Star Awards for her role in family drama Portrait Of Home, and starred in hit series like Secrets For Sale, The Oath and feature film Lost And Found, opposite Taiwanese stars Xiao Xiao Bin and James Wen. An ambassador for Mazda and homegrown beauty brand Estetica, she also stars in this month’s Channel 8 psychological drama Mind Matters, where she plays a tailor who is obsessed with cleanliness.
