PRUNE: Introduce yourself to our readers
JACKIE: Hey guys, I’m Jackie R. Jacobson, I’m 17 and I’m from Netflixʼs Malibu Rescue!
PRUNE: How did you first get into acting?
JACKIE: I was watching Disney channel when I was little and I always told my mom I wanted to be “on TV.” She finally let me go to an acting class when I was 8 and the rest is history!
PRUNE: What was your first role ever?
JACKIE: My very first role was on Criminal Minds. Sadly, I got murdered in the first 5 minutes of the episode so I didn’t last very long...
PRUNE: You star in Netflixʼs newest series, Malibu Rescue. Talk to us about the show and what viewers can expect.
JACKIE: Following the movie – the series is all about the “Flounders” new lives as real Malibu Junior Rescue. There’s a new crazy and fun adventure in every episode. You’ll be laughing from start to finish, but there are some really sweet and real moments as well. Viewers should expect to fall in love with our team of underdogs and root us on all season.
PRUNE: Talk to us specifically about your character, Dylan. What should viewers know about her?
JACKIE: Dylan always tries to do her best and prove herself as captain material. She’s a bit of a dork and a little bit of a scatter brain, but she means well and will do whatever it takes to help her team succeed. Viewers will see her grow and prove herself from the movie to the series.
PRUNE: If you werenʼt professionally acting, what career would you pursue?
JACKIE: I’m a huge foodie, so I would have loved to be a chef. I’ll attempt to cook or bake anything at home.
PRUNE: - Are you more of a tomboy or girly girl?
JACKIE: I’m definitely more of a girly girl but with two older brothers, I know how to stand my ground.
PRUNE: Who is your dream costar?
JACKIE: I wish I had the chance to work with my favorite actor of all time, Robin Williams. He’s incredible and fascinating to watch. I can’t even imagine how it would have been to work with him.
PRUNE: Describe your fashion style
JACKIE: I like to describe my personal style as edgy yet flirty. One day you will see me in a floral mini dress and the next in an all leather number. I like to wear what makes me feel good and comfortable.
PRUNE: Favorite spring trend?
JACKIE: NEON! Adding a neon top or shoe to any outfit makes it really stand out. I recently bought two neon dresses from Alice and Olivia and I’m counting down the days until I can wear them!
PRUNE: Where can we follow you on social?
