Biography » theater opera and movie personalities » jolene blalock


Although Jolene proved to be a born surfer while growing up in California, she decided to pursue an acting career. Born and raised in California, Jolene’s father would take her and her brothers to the water to surf, in what became a regular family sport. She made her debut in 1998, in a bit part in the comedy Veronica’s Closet, and The Love Boat: The Next Wave a year later.


Jolene got her big break when she was cast as Medea in the NBC miniseries, Jason and the Argonauts in 2000, co-starring Jason London and Natasha Henstridge.


2000 was a big year for the natural blonde turned brunette, who appeared in an episode of G vs E, a couple of episodes of D.C., and a guest spot on C.S.I.. She also appeared in the military drama JAG, as the only excuse to tear your eyes away from Catherine Bell.


Jolene hit the big time when she was cast as Subcommander T’Pol in the installment of the Star Trek franchise, Enterprise. With the success that Jeri Ryan brought to the show as Seven of Nine, Jolene is sure to make every man a Trekker.


The part forces her to wear pointy devil ears, a wig and a catsuit (yes!), and incidentally, she was going to turn down the role at first.


Jolene will next appear in the made-for-TV movie, On the Edge, along with Alyssa Milano, as well as the miniseries, Diamond Hunters.
