Mallory Jansen is an Australian actress, born and raised in Melbourne.
Early Life Edit
Mallory studied drama in New York in 2011, being coached by some of the world's best acting, accent, analysis, method and film teachers at some of the most renowned schools such as Stella Adler and T. Schreiber Studio.
After completing her studies, Mallory returned to Australia where it wasn't long before she scored roles on a string of mini-series hits. They included Channel Nine's Howzat! Kerry Packer's War, Network Ten's Mr & Mrs Murder and Australian Broadcasting Commission's (ABC) Twentysomething. However it was her role playing supermodel Helena Christensen on Channel 7's Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS that proved she was making a name for herself in the Australian TV industry and which also created a flutter of interest for the young actress in Los Angeles.
Mallory made the move over to the US in mid-2013 and only weeks later scored her first recurring role of Caroline Huntington in ABC Family's Young & Hungry, shortly followed by the recurring role of Georgie Farlow in ABC Family's hit show Baby Daddy.
That same year news broke that Mallory was to play the starring role of Madalena in ABC's fresh new comedy Galavant, a musical fairytale with a twist. Written and created by Dan Fogelman ('Crazy, Stupid, Love', 'Tangled', 'Cars') who teamed up with Broadway and award-winning musical team - composer Alan Menken ('The Little Mermaid', 'Aladdin', 'Beauty and the Beast') and lyricist Glenn Slater ('Tangled') - for the four-week comedy extravaganza. Galavant premiered on ABC on Sunday, January 4, 2015 to excellent ratings of 7.9 million viewers, making it TV's top-rated comedy debut since 'Black-ish'.
