Jessica Dardarian was born in Folsom, CA, a suburb outside of Sacramento in 1995. Her mother is a homemaker and her father is an entrepreneur for tool making. She also has a sister who is two years her senior. At about three years of age, she was diagnosed as having autism spectrum disorder and felt different from other people around her. She attended a couple different schools for her special needs and ended up attending a small private school within the Sacramento region. That was where she started learning American Sign Langauge (ASL) and fell in love with the language. Even though she loved learning ASL, she always wanted to become an actress, since she was young by watching "Mary Poppins," "Funny Girl," the MGM musicals of the 1940's - 1950's, and the Disney Renaissance.
At thirteen, she got bit by the acting bug and started doing a myriad of show within the Sacramento community theatre region, like "Aladdin," "Alice in Wonderland," and "Into the Woods," to name a few. She even attended the prestigious theatre camp, Stagedoor Manor in Upstate New York for a summer.
Some of her most recent credits include "Lady Hyde," "Emmanuelle in Sin City," and "Decisions," to name a few and is slated to star in "She Knows Feratu," an erotic horror film that is tentatively planned on being released in the summer of 2023.
She is not only autistic, but identifies as pansexual/genderfluid/genderqueer/non-binary and goes by she/they pronouns.
