LarJayne made her acting debut in the play Oklahoma, her Senior year of High School. Unfortunately, small town suburbia couldn’t contain her energy and spirit that drives her, so she split a year later and bounced around between NY and parts of the mid-west. Because her Mom was hell-bent against her pursuing an acting career, she hopped from job – job looking for her niche, trying her best to find something her Mom approved of.
Eventually, she hit the highway for South Florida, and eventually formed and operated two small businesses simultaneously, while working part-time, backstage, at two community theaters.
After years of feeling unfulfilled she decided that it was time to follow her heart. So she called it quits with her small businesses and in 2006, transplanted herself in Los Angeles to pursue acting after pitstops in Las Vegas & San Francisco.
Although she does not consider herself a writer but loves the process, she wrote her first script, a sketch comedy titled 'Meno-Blaster', which was one of 4 winners on We Make Movies Sketch Comedy night and was then filmed at the YouTube Studios.
LarJayne stays active in acting workshops and networking, developing and sharpening her skills, adding to her little bag of acting tricks that she can pull from at any given moment.
Besides having been cast as Officer Gladys, in CineMotion 1st Entertainment's 'I Love Your Moves', she also crewed with the boutique production company as pre-production & casting assistant, On-set as PA, and runner. In their previous film was Art Department & Prop Assistant and a Runner. This has given her a greater perspective of the production process and has a great respect for the crew members behind the production.
