Jennifer Veal was born in Coventry, and began dancing at the age of five. She played the role of "Baby June" in Gypsy at the Warwick Arts Centre, Coventry aged 10. At 11 she made her West End debut in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at The London Palladium, working with stars such as Michael Ball and Wayne Sleep and at 12 was offered a place at the Sylvia Young Theatre School, London. Although this meant living away from home on weekdays, she pursued her dream and has never looked back. She has worked with Elton John & Tim Healy (opening cast of Billy Elliot) and Il Divo (Royal Variety Performance 2005) to name but a few. At present she stars in Disney Channel UK's As The Bell Rings as "Lucy". Veal has a recurring role on Disney Channel Original Series Jessie.
When I was in school, I'm in an industry where I started young. I was like 11. Kids would try to intimidate me for being a child actor. It was bizarre to kids who didn't do what I do and I'm going off and I'm in the public eye at such a young age. Some people aren't particularly nice about that, you know? Jealousy. A lot of jealousy is involved because there are a lot of perks in what I do. I think that you just grow with it and learn with it.
