Jacqueline Steiger grew up acting because she was bored in school and her mom figured giving her new scripts to read every day would keep her entertained. On the sets of movies like Matilda and Dennis the Menace Strikes Again she learned about things like “line of sight” and “dailies” but was never able to distinguish all those people running around in black (her favorite was the guy with all the rolls of tape). She had the privilege of working with some of the best people in the business, and is grateful that she got to do all her own stunts. What 9-year-old doesn’t want to be able to fly?

She took time off from acting in order to finish school, graduating summa cum laude from UCLA with a BA in Linguistics and Anthropology and a minor in LGBT studies, cementing her place in nerd-dom forever. Her degree allows her to pick up accents easily, as well as explain why “food” and “foot” don’t rhyme. She also went to Carnegie Hall with the decorated El Camino College Women’s Choir. Now that she’s back in the business full speed ahead, Jacqueline enjoys creating her own content and being a general dork. Check out her video page for some of her recent stuff!
When she’s not acting, writing, or singing, Jacqueline enjoys all things sci-fi/fantasy, video game, baking, and crochet. She works at San Diego Comic-con every summer. When asked to prove her “nerd cred”, she explains (while pointing out that boys are never asked to prove their “nerd cred”) that when she went to the Star Wars exhibit at the California Science Center, she was disappointed. All the models said things like “this is the Millennium Falcon. It was piloted by Han Solo”. NOT “this is the Millennium Falcon. It’s a Corellian YT-1300 freighter that was piloted by Han Solo after he won it from Lando Calrissian in a sabacc game in which he cheated.”
