1Glazy stare and big smile
2Red hair and large hazel eyes
1The other day, I noticed I'd arranged my spices in alphabetical order when I was on the phone, without even realizing, and when I was a kid I was constantly cleaning and organizing things - my toys, my sister's cosmetics.
2My mom was a big 'Smurfs' fan, so she would force me to watch every Saturday morning. I had no choice in the matter. I would jump downstairs on Saturday morning, 'Hurray, cartoons!' and she would say, 'Smurfs! That's what you're watching.'
3I was so focused at 21, maybe to my own detriment because I didn't allow myself to have fun. I was constantly looking for the next audition and working to pay the bills.
4I was really across-the-board, like a nutcase. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life, so I just did everything. I was even part of FHA, Future Homemakers of America. How lost was I?
5I did work at a mall in college - I think retail/customer service is just one of the most hideous jobs in the world. So I always try to be extra nice when I go into a store. But malls are part of our culture, if you watched any teen comedy in the '80s. it's clear that malls are where we live!
6Growing up I played piano and I sang at a lot of weddings; I grew up in a very small town, a little coal-mining town in Virginia called Grundy. And my family was very sing-songy at home.
7This morning I was laughing at my cat who was running up the stairs and slipped, and pretended like it didn't happen.
8My husband calls me a ginger every single day of my life, so that I'm completely used to it, and I've come to see it as a term of endearment.
9I don't remember my dreams. I'm one of those weird people. I know there are tricks and things you can do, but I never remember my dreams.
10I did math in school, obviously. And I loved all my math teachers.
11I definitely know that I'm quirky. I know that I'm different. Red hair definitely made me different growing up.
12I was a big fan of The Smurfs (1981) growing up, even though by default - my mom used to force me to watch because she was a "Smurfs" fan.
13I feel really content in my 30s actually. I don't feel like the wisest person in the world but I definitely don't worry or stress like I used to.
1Gave birth to her 1st child at age 37, a son named Jude Jones on August 21, 2016. Child's father is her husband, Adam Campbell.
2After moving to Los Angeles, California she joined the Knightsbridge Theatre Company where she performed in several stage plays working with them for nearly three years.
3After receiving her B.S. in Performing Arts from Radford University, she completed an apprenticeship with B-Street Theatre in Sacramento, California.
4Jayma's all-time favorite television show is The Golden Girls (1985). She has the boxed set and watches it all the time.
5Has appeared on two major network television series, Heroes (2006) and Ugly Betty (2006), within the same the year with the same character name, "Charlie".
