Meet our newest Hollywood Rising Star, Jacqui Holland, a bright blue eyed girl from Cincinnati who has found her way into the entertainment world.
Jacqui Holland is not your typical girl, though she has beautiful innocent Hollywood star looks, she admits she has a little dark and twisted mind, and loves to play psychopaths and killers in films. You may have seen her in My Best Friend’s Girl (2008) opposite Kate Hudson, or How I Met Your Mother, Desperate Housewives, and you can look forward to her future works currently in post production on films such as Lotto, Monsters in the Woods, Teeth & Blood, and War of the Dragon, and many more.
Not only is she a talented actress, she is also a writer, standup comic, and a producer as she recently launched her own Hollywood production company called MindFuc Films, where she can channel her dark side and produce more horror and thriller flicks. She is also a frequent judge of comedy selections at the Burbank International Film Festival.
When asked what she thinks of Hollywood, this is what she said, “It’s a tough place. Casting couches still exist. It’s really what you make of it. You have to create your own success and team of people to work with, so you don’t ever have to get trapped in horrible situations where you’re told what you have to do to be successful. The best part of the business is when you get the call that you just got a role, or as a producer that you got all the money to start production. It’s a high that can’t be beat. The worst part is the rejection…There’s a lot of it.”
Despite the Hollywood stigma, Jacqui Holland is still a real girl next door who loves to wear ripped jeans and flannel shirts while hanging at home, and who admittedly never loses herself in the business. She’s a truly creative woman whose mind never stops, and we’re excited to see what she creates with her new production company. After all she is our newest Hollywood Rising Star, and we want to see her shine.
