Who is Jennifer Holland?
Jennifer Holland was born on 9 November 1987, in Chicago, Illinois, USA, and is an actress, probably best known for her work in the television series “American Horror Story”. She was a part of the anthology series in 2012 in the storyline “Asylum”. She’s also known for her role in the series “Sun Records” in 2017, in which she plays Becky Phillips.
The Riches of Jennifer Holland
As of mid-2020, Jennifer Holland’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million, earned through a successful career in acting, in the entertainment industry since 2004, and while most of her work is on television, she’s also had a few feature film projects.
Early Life and Career Beginnings
Growing up, Jennifer had varied interests, and acting was one of them. While she loved the performing arts, she was very interested in several sciences too, particularly in the field of physics. She also loved playing video games, though she was more into the role-playing genre as she could never really connect with fast-paced games such as shooters.
She grew up in Chicago, and sometime during college decided to pursue a career as a professional actress. After completing her studies, she took up auditions, leading to her first television appearance as a guest in “Dante’s Cove”; the show focuses more on the LGBT community, with elements of soap operas and horrors.
It tells the story of a couple who are assailed by various dark forces that want to separate them; it received mixed reviews throughout its run, and continued to air for three seasons before it was canceled. Following that role, she made guest appearances in both “The Experts: Miami” and “Drake and Josh”.
Continued Acting Work
Holland made her feature film debut in 2004, in the horror film “The Sisterhood” which is described as homoerotic, following the lives of two female college roommates. One of them is tasked to discover possible dark forces within the sorority her roommate resides in, leading her to enter a world of the supernatural and the sensual.
The following year, she was cast in “The House of the Dead 2” which is a sequel to 2003’s “House of the Dead”. Both films are based on the video game series of the same name, which was released by Sega during the late 1990s.
In 2008, she worked on the zombie comedy film “Zombie Strippers” which starred Jenna Jameson, Penny Drake and Robert Englund in the story of a dystopian future where strippers who’ve been re-animated as zombies become more popular than human strippers. She then gained a bit of attention the following year, as she was cast in the film “American Pie Presents: The Book of Love”.
The film is a spin-off from the popular “American Pie” franchise, but with only Eugene Levy being retained from the original. The film didn’t fare as well as the original trilogy, with many critics labeling it as something that’s supposed to be straight-to-video.
Rise to Prominence
During the early 2010s, Jennifer was a part of a string of television projects. She made guest appearances in “Days of our Lives”, “Rizzoli & Isles”, and “Bones”, plus several independent film projects.
In 2012 she gained prominence once more, as she was cast in the show “American Horror Story” during its “Asylum” season.
It is an anthology series with each season detailing a new story. “Asylum” was the second season, and is set in 1964 in Massachusetts, and follows the story of patients and staff who are all connected through a mental institution reserved for the criminally insane. The show starred Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Jessica Lange, and Lily Rabe. The show gained positive reviews during its entire run, with many of the cast members being praised for their performances. The show was continued in 2013’s “Coven”, but Jennifer was no longer a part of it, and has now been airing for over nine seasons. The showrunners have expressed a desire to come back to previous seasons to continue their respective stories.
In 2013, Holland made a guest appearance in the television series “The Glades”, which aired on the A&E Network. It starred Matt Passmore and follows the story of a state police detective working within the Florida Everglades community. He was sent there after being shot by a fellow police officer, and hoped to have something similar to a semi-retirement, but discovers that the town he is in is more than meets the eye. The show aired for four seasons before it was abruptly canceled, leaving it on a cliffhanger.
She didn’t make any more acting appearances in the next few years, laying low as she focused on supporting her partner James Gunn’s projects. She is set to make an appearance in the 2021 film “The Suicide Squad”, directed by Gunn – he became set to direct the film after being fired by The Walt Disney Company due to a reaction to some past issues he had. He was later rehired by Disney, though he remains as the director of “The Suicide Squad” as he was always interested in making a film about the team. Her role has not yet been released, though this iteration takes heavy inspiration from the team’s 1980s comics.
Jennifer met and started a relationship with Gunn sometime in 2013. Her boyfriend is best known for his work as the director of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” film series, which has elevated his career significantly, making him one of the highly sought-after directors of recent years. She lives a very straight edge life, as she’s never done drugs or drunk alcohol, preferring not to engage in any vices. She also did a lot of gymnastics when she was younger, one of the reasons she pursued acting as she felt the thrill after a performance. She’s been very supportive of her partner through their time together, even remaining with him during his issue that led to his initial firing from Disney.
