Early LifeEdit

Jess Woodworth was born on February 17, 1996 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Moving to the United States when she was three years old, she was raised in Las Vegas, before moving to Los Angeles. She became accustomed to a career in entertainment at an early age, as her parents were a professional acrobatic dance team who performed internationally. Pieterse was homeschooled and graduated at 14. She soon met with an agent who quickly signed her to an acting and modeling contract. Pieterse got her start in the business at the age of four, when she began working on commercials and print work. Pieterse has done numerous television commercials, including long-running national spots for Nesquick and Firestone.


At six years old, Jess got various parts in Nesquick & Firestone commercials. Jess stopped acting for them and decided to go big, with permission of her parents, of course. At age nine, she got her first major role as "Serena" in Outcast, making her the youngest cast member. Unfortunatley, the show was canceled during it's mid-season hiatus in 2015.

On July 21, 2015, she signed to the After Dark Network.
