Jasmine Jobson has a knack for turning plot twists and roles into award-winning and powerful performances. Dressed in head-to-toe Prada and waltzing around the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel for her Schön! 45 feature, you wouldn’t know Jobson had just returned from a trip to the Dominican Republic. It’s a vacation that, after some time working fearlessly on several projects, was much-deserved. “At this point, I don’t even think the sky is the limit anymore. I feel like I can go further than that… metaphorically speaking,” she laughs. “It’s been a beautiful experience.”
After nabbing two BAFTA nominations and a Best Emerging Talent Movie Video and Screen Award for her work in Top Boy, Jobson has seen her career grow with her. It’s a crazy thought for a girl who always longed to be on the stage. “It all started from Walt Disney movies: Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Mary Poppins… You name it, I’ve sung it,” Jobson says, touching on her childhood spent at a local performing arts club.
Looking ahead, Jobson has her sights on ITVX’s Platform 7 where she plays the lead role of Lisa. “It’s a psychological thriller, definitely something that’s gonna keep people on their toes,” she explains. “I’m excited to watch it because I’m playing a completely different character. You get to see more of my vulnerable side, which I love.” Without a doubt, Jobson’s ascent is truly written in the stars.
Platform 7 airs on ITVX this winter.
