Jamie Bernadette Watkins (born December 14, 1987, Kankakee, Illinois) is an American actress and occasional producer. She has appeared in many horror films.
Watkins came to a crossroads in her life when she had the choice to stay in her beloved hometown, settle down and get married, or venture out to Los Angeles where dreams of acting awaited her. She came to the decision to try out Hollywood and left with $600 in her pocket and drove across the country by herself.Her first roles include the thriller Son of Sam and the short Struck (both 2008), co-starring Kelly Preston and Jenna Elfman. In 2009 she had a bigger role besides David Carradine in Absolute Evil. Since 2010 she was seen in more popular movies such as MILF (2010), Axeman (2013), What Now (2015), starring Ice-T, Mortdecai (2015), starring Johnny Depp, Jem and the Holograms (2015), and The Darkness, (2016), starring Kevin Bacon. She also appeared in an episode of The Neighbors. In 2016 she starred in Let's Be Evil and All Girls Weekend. She also played the starring role in I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu (2019).
Watkins was born and raised in Kankakee, Illinois. She is the youngest of nine children, five sisters and four brothers. Her father died four months after her birth, leaving her mother to raise all of the children on her own with very limited means. Watkins dreamed of being on the big screen since she was around five years old. She watched movies repeatedly and acted out the scenes, mimicking the actresses she loved. Watkins began acting in Community Theater productions at about age 10 and did some theater in high school as well. She studied acting at Margie Haber Studios and the Van Mar Academy of Motion Picture and Television Acting.
