I’m Jimena. I’m a Mexican-British actor residing in the UK.
One thing I love is traveling, and after having studied at Casa del Teatro in Mexico City, I moved to wonderful Saskatchewan, (surviving freezing temperatures of -35) where I completed a 3 year BA in Drama. Growing up in a 25 million people city I thought I had gone mad living somewhere so remote. It was mad indeed but I was in love with a Canadian man and thought freezing to death for him was worth it.
Despite things not quite working out in the love department back then, those years in the Canadian prairies had the most positive impact in my life. I now live in England with my little family of two: my British husband and my 5 year old boy. Life has drastically changed since becoming a mum and I absolutely love it. Hmm, scratch ‘absolutely’ (to keep it real).
When I’m not acting, you may find me planning my next exotic holiday I can’t afford, attempting to finish that book I started 3 years ago, trying not to make a fool of myself at the gym, playing the ukulele (sort of), writing , blogging, clowning, praying, FaceTiming, , home-schooling, listening to classical music, singing, going to the theatre, crying my heart out with my mum friends, walking outdoors and making crafts. When I’m not doing any of that, you are likely to find me playing and/or most definitely going slightly mental with my wonderfully energetic little man.
Thank you for your interest in my hopefully entertaining mum-thespian journey.
