From alien to fairytale princess and now a Navy officer’s wife, chameleon actress Jessy Schram hot off the heels of ABC’s hit series “Once Upon a Time” and TNT’s “Falling Skies” comes to ABC’s Fall Thursday night line-up at 8pm on September 27th as “Christine Kendal” the wife of “Sam Kendal” (played by Scott Speedman) on the highly anticipated “Last Resort.” Developed by “The Shield” creator, Shawn Ryan, “Last Resort” focuses on the crew of a nuclear submarine who become fugitives and take over a NATO outpost after refusing to fire their missiles. Schram plays “Christine Kendal” the wife of Navy officer “Sam” who is waiting for her husband to come home but is now forced to defend her husband against accusations of treason and to fight, and possibly compromise herself, to clear his name.
Schram also returned to the 2nd season of Steven Spielberg & TNT’s hit sci-fi drama, “Falling Skies” (Sundays @ 10PM) alongside Noah Wyle and Will Patton which premiered to 4.5 million viewers! Opening in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world incapacitated, the few survivors band together to begin the task of fighting back. Schram co-stars as “Karen Nadler,” the girlfriend of Hal Mason (played by Drew Roy) who was captured by Skitters (the aliens) and is now a malevolent voice for the overlords.
A fairytale princess come to life, Schram stars as “Cinderella/Ashley Boyd” on Sunday’s #1 TV Show and top-rated drama series ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” that was just picked up for a second season, alongside Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, and Robert Carlyle. Cinderella makes a deal with Rumplestiltskin (Carlyle) while in the parallel world Emma (Morrison) comes to the aid of a young pregnant Ashley (Schram) who is trying to escape from Storybooke.
Known for her recurring role as “Hannah Griffith” in Veronica Mars, this Illinois native is a philanthropist at heart. Working with Corazon De Vida, a non-profit organization supporting Baja orphanages, Schram often visits Tijuana on medical missions or to visit at the orphanages. Additionally, a singer/songwriter, Schram often donates her talents at Corazon De Vida fundraisers. Schram also volunteers her time at the Dream Center, a volunteer driven organization that offers rehab for teens and adults, a shelter for victims of human trafficking, a transitional shelter for homeless families and mobile hunger relief and medical programs.
