Name: Paris Jefferson
Place of birth: England


Paris Jefferson first appeared in the XENA episode, Amphipolis Under Siege. I was lucky enough to meet her recently, and she was born in England, and moved to Australia as a child, where she grew up. She appeared memorably in a VW advert as a just divorced girl, to the tune of The Bluebells 'Young at Heart', I can vaguely remember it....

Looking at her resume, seemes like she started out in Autralia, and with a few British shows later on. She was in a Sherlock Holmes episode (The Eligible Bachelor) and a Poirot TV film (Hickory Dickory Dock). Paris is now based in LA, and involved in a number of Theatre projects.

She was in a series of plays called The Greeks for several months, just before being cast as Athena, which probably helped get her the role. Although not very tall, Paris projected a very good sense of authority as Athena.

Since making her last foray into the Xenaverse, Paris has devoted most of her time to screenwriting projects. She recently finished scripting a short film for actress Lea Thompson and has another movie project in the works. As a member of the independent theatre group The Impulse Company, Paris has also assisted with the development of a new play called 'Round Robin', which made its debut in Europe this past November.
