Jessica Brown Findlay is an English actress born on September 14th, 1989. She was born in Berkshire. She was the child of Beverley and Christopher-Brown Findlay. Her father is a financial adviser, and her mother is a teacher’s assistant. She joined in the Furze Platt Senior School in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

Due to her ballet skill, she was invited to dance with Kirov, the resident classical ballet company in Russia at the Royal Opera House at the age of fifteen.
After her senior school completion, she got admissions into various ballet schools, but she chose to get into Arts Educational School because it provides A-level courses in ballet. During her final year of the course, she underwent three operations on her ankles. Unfortunately, the last operation did not go well, and it ended her dancing career.
