JESS FENTON
Working in the television industry for 10 years and growing up in it for 20 years before that, this path was inevitable. An AFTRS alum with two Graduate Certificates under her belt, Jess is the definition of a movie buff and after torturing her friends with her opinions for years, they're now out there for public consumption. By day, Jess is an employee at Channel 9 travelling the country and the globe working on the Today Show, News, NRL, The Footy Show and the 2012 London Olympics, among others, but by night she's either hauled up inside a cinema (her home away from home) or rubbing shoulders with movie stars and movie makers on red carpets.

TOP 3 ARTISTS: Damien Rice, Ed Sheeran, Sam Cooke
TOP 3 MOVIES: Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Stranger Than Fiction, Juno
BEST CONCERT: Peter Gabriel in Verona, Italy - 2010
FIRST MEMORY OF A FILM: When I was 5 I was with my family sitting front row at a screening of Dirty Dancing facing the audience. I turned around once the movie started and suddenly felt overwhelmed with the desire to be up there on that screen.
