Jillian Barrie was born in New York, New York and grew up between Princeton, New Jersey and Parkland, Florida. With a profound love of storytelling, she began her professional acting career at just eighteen, quickly adapting to the industry with work on Amazon Prime's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and MTV's "Three Months". She moved on to star in a number of indie films, including the multi-award winning thriller "Silhouette" by Lucca Vieria and "I Like My Coffee Cold" by Gabriela Guavera. Most recently, Jillian was featured in Netflix's "Strangers" and is currently starring in Nobody Animation's pilot series "Spaced Out". When she is not on set, Jillian loves watching horror movies, taking frequent Disney trips and spending time with her dog, Daisy.
Jillian has been a fan of "Grease" since childhood, and always felt a strong connection to the character of Frenchy. Both bubbly, clumsy and a little bit ditzy - Jillian actually dropped out of beauty school as well! She is beyond thrilled to step into the shoes of one of her favorite characters and bring a new wave of diversity and culture into both Frenchy and "Grease 305."
