Beau Jessie Garrett was born on December 28, 1982 in Beverly Hills, California. While Jessie and her sister were growing up in the Santa Monica area, Garrett was an avid amateur equestrian rider. We can definitely picture her in riding breeches (at a legal age, of course). Her fortunes changed when an agent from Elite Modeling Agency stopped her in a mall and encouraged her to try modeling. Just before starting high school, Garrett inked a contract and began her new life as a model.
In addition to her deal with Elite Model Management, Jessie also became affiliated with Vision Los Angeles, "Why Not Model Agency" and "Priscillas Model Management". While the rest of us were working at the mall food court and the local car wash in high school, Garrett was making sick amounts of cash in print modeling, eventually as a face for Guess? in the late 1990s and continuing on with other companies like "CosmoGirl", "Double D Ranch", "American Eagle Outfitters", and "Sisley". Although she enjoyed the work overall, Garrett didn't feel that it was a healthy long-term choice for women, so she decided to expand her career in a different direction.
Looking to break into the acting arena, Beau Jessir Garrett got her first role in 2004 with a guest spot on the TV series "North Shore" (featuring everyone's favorite mean girl Shannen Doherty). Next role was a two-episode stint as Fiona, one of Adrian Grenier's conquests on the hit show "Entourage". Garrett carried the momentum forward with roles on two "Head Cases" starring Chris O'Donnell, and the WB series Rocky Point.
Unfortunately for this girl, "Head Cases" and "Rocky Point" were both canceled early on, but the latter did introduce her to writer-director John Stockwell. He saw something in the young star (we're going go out on a limb and wager that that something was her hotness) and cast her as doomed tourist in Brazil in his 2006 horror film, "Turistas". The cast also featured Josh Duhamel, Melissa George and Olivia Wilde. Garrett held her own against them and followed the movie up with a guest appearance on the TV's "Wildfire" before returning to movies with 2007's dark satire, "Live!".
The summer of 2007 gave Garrett her major role yet in the high-powered superhero sequel, "Fantastic Four: Revenge of the Silver Surfer". In it she played Frankie, a military girl who gets mixed up with "The Human Torch" (Chris Evans). A year later, actress was back on summer screens with a supporting role in the romantic comedy "Made of Honor", top-lined by Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan. She also earned a lead role that year in the dueling pianists drama, "Ivory".
