Falling for acting at 7 after watching a production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat", Jessica (Michelle) Chastain then attended the Juilliard School and became a member of its Drama Division's Group 32, thanks to a scholarship provided by the late Robin Williams. During her time studying in the institution, she was actively involved in several theatrical productions and student film projects. After graduating she left her hometown New York for California and started auditioning for roles. Landing her TV debut as Carolyn Stoddard on "Dark Shadows", the feature unfortunately was never aired.
