Jessica Clark (born 21 April 1985) is a British model and actress. Clark grew up in London; she is of Irish, Indian, and Nigerian descent. At 16, she won a national modeling competition, and signed with Models 1. Choosing initially to combine modeling with her studies, Clark attended the London School of Economics as a law undergraduate with the intention of pursuing a law career. However, the success of her modeling career led her to leave the program after 18 months, and move first to Paris and then a year later to New York City.
