When we think of the beautiful and talented actresses from Pennsylvania, names like Grace Kelly, Sharon Stone, Amanda Seyfried, and Demi Moore come to mind.  Lately, eyes and ears have been on Jenn Gotzon who's been earning her prestige upon the silver screen and rank amongst the greats.  Her versatile abilities as a performer built serious star power and public interest in recent years.  This blonde, blue-eyed enchantress has honed her skills to pursue one big dream:  to inspire and impact audiences through the protagonist roles she plays in films.  While many may not know it, she's been accomplishing this dream since she began her journey at a very young age.

Jenn was a high honors graduate at Northampton Area High School where she was very active in many student programs, and athletics.  At the age of 15, she began acting and modeling through Chartreuse Talent Management.  Eventually, Jenn won the Rising Star National Scholastic Pageant, later competed for Miss America, and made it to the state level in 2000.  She furthered her career as an actress while studying at Northampton Community College and The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts' Summer Program. Eventually, she made it to California and got roles in various independent films.  As good things would come in time, Jenn landed her breakthrough role as President Nixon's daughter in Ron Howard's Frost Nixon. People began seeing the potential that the amazing actress really had.  "Jenn is young & beautiful with the ability to express emotion way beyond her years,"  said Oscar-nominated Patty McCormack during an interview at the film's opening night.  She even bagged the runner-up spot on IMDb's star meter (just behind Chris Hemsworth) possibly because she's that great at her craft or cause she's mighty gorgeous... likely both. And as we have continued to see since, Jenn's fan base has grown just as the roles she's been landing.

Among several new productions in the works, Alone Yet Not Alone is Jenn's newest of 2013.  Jenn plays the role of Lydia in the historical yet sentimental film about two young sisters abducted from their home by a hostile Native American tribe, and all the while keep it together in high faith with the words of a family hymn: Alone Yet Not Alone.  Now if you're a history fanatic, the film is based on a true story about a family during the 1750's when English colonies suffered the atrocities of war.  Whether history thrills you or not, movies with historical primacy hit the popularity charts big time in 2012 with Argo (winner of best motion picture/drama), Lincoln (best motion picture/drama nominee), Zero Dark Thirty (best picture/drama nominee), and The ImpossibleAlone Yet Not Alone just might be the apex of 2013 history flicks, and Jenn's role is sure to be a fine addition to the movie's formula.  You can see further details and a great trailer at

With Alone Yet Not Alone already out, several other films in production, and a tall list of other work under her belt, Jenn has grown remarkably as a person and star; you can bet that her hard work and generosity is inspiring and impacting followers all over. We can't wait to see more of Jenn later this year and in the years to come!
