Jane Park Smith
Ms. America 2007-08

 

An actress, model, author, martial artist, speaker, former Ms. America, and foodie, Jane's diversified TV credits include 24, The Cape, Rizzoli & Isles, Reno911, Bones, and most recently recurred, guest-starring in FOX’s latest drama "Gang Related" as Korean mob boss Su-Jin. Her films include ''Street Warrior'', ''Quarantine'', and ''Bring It On.” Coming soon, she brings Raven to life in the film ''Scream at the Devil,'' which fleshes out the gripping realities of schizophrenia and Mina in “Heartbreak” in which she becomes a champion pro-billiards player fighting for her son's welfare. “Heartbreak” is close to her heart as it is inspired by real events with redemptive overtones. She also just wrapped her first action feature as sadistic fight specialist Tess in "Boone: the Bounty Hunter."

Available on Amazon, her inspirational non-fiction book, Rocky the Rescue, gives 90% of proceeds of each book to animal rescue and other charities. Married since 2006, the couple lives with their set-trained canine actor Rocky Bear Smith in Los Angeles. She relishes finding fine foods and treats in between her other creative ventures...barely sweet dark chocolate being a must!
