Jurnee Smollett Biography

As a biography, Jurnee Smollett was born on October 1, 1986 in New York City, so her age is 21. She has four brothers and a sister whose names are Jazz, Jocqui, Jake, Jojo and Jussie. So it appears her parents had a theme going on. All six of them have acted professionally.

Jurnee began acting at age 5 with a role in “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper”. When she was 7, a fellow crew member from “On Our Own” died of AIDS, and she has since become very involved in the cause. Jurnee is also on the Board of Directors of Artists for a New South Africa.

Smollett has been staying on the right track, unlike many child stars these days. There are rumors that she might be trying to start a music career.
