“What’s your name? It’s Anne Egerma!” – A Little Night Music

Her name is Jessie Buckley, and she is the Anne Egerma that we know from Stephen Sondheim’s movie. A multi-award winner, she boasts her AIMS Best Actress award for portraying Julie Jordan in Carousel. But what do we know about the girl that goes by the name Jessie Buckley?

She was born on the 28th of December, 1989 in Killarney. Her mother was already a vocal coach at the Ursuline Secondary School. She grew to be inspired by her mother’s profession. Buckley joined the Royal Irish Academy to learn harp, clarinet, and piano. While she attended the Association of Irish Musical Societies, she was recognized for her acting skills. Following that, her parents encouraged her to joined Drama School in London. It was just before she auditioned for BBC’s talent competition, I’d Do Anything. Jessie revealed that her participation on the talent show was partly because two drama schools rejected her.

Jessie Buckley started her acting career as a competitor in I’d Do Anything. She came in second place during the show. She followed by giving her debut performance in Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music.

It wasn’t until September 2008 that the world heard the voice of Jessie Buckley. She sang a solo song entitled I Don’t Know How To Love Him and Light At The End Of The Tunnel. She performed along with talented Niamh Perry, Rachel Tucker, and Keisha Banson.

That was one of the breakthroughs in her career. From her performance, she drew attention to her exceptional vocal skills. She was offered a performance at RTE Concert Orchestra alongside Aoife Mulholland.

Jessie emerged as a prominent actress in 2013. Her portrayal of Miranda in The Tempest at Shakespeare’s Globe was one of the best. While directors kept offering her roles and parts in their films, Jessie would stick to good scripts. Such a style would also lead her to play Emily Strong in Shades Of Love and as the lead Moll Huntingdon in Beast.

BBC Television featured a lot of series like War and Peace, Taboo, The Last Post, and The Woman In White. Jessie aced her roles and portrayed various characters. She was tagged as a versatile actress, able to shift from comedy to intense tragedy in just seconds!

Jessie considered keeping it low profile when it comes to her personal life. She previously dated her co-star James Norton. The couple were spotted together on many occasions with many pictures taken by paparazzi. However, the two broke apart two years after. In 2019, she is single in the eyes of the media, but rumors point to the arrival of another knight in shining armor!

Jessie is from Ireland and an example that Irish people are behind some of the great work in the media industry. Not only Irish people, but the Irish Culture has inspired the creation of songs, artworks, and even games! Irish-themed slots, for example, are favorites in the casino world. Games like Rainbow Riches Slot and Irish Gold Slot provide entertainment to new and expert players. Did you know that you can play this game at Kitty Bingo, the UK-based online bingo site? You can experience the entertaining gameplay on mobile, tablet, or desktop devices whenever you want. How about trying it? You will come across the splendor of the Irish!
