Jennifer Landa is an actress, host, and self-proclaimed geek. Just like that alien in Spaceballs, Jennifer came out of the womb singing and dancing. Throughout high school and college, she honed her acting skills at South Coast Repertory’s Young Conservatory and at UC Irvine’s School of Drama. While in college, Jennifer was bestowed the honor of portraying “Princess Jasmine” at Disneyland. Her 5 year reign in Adventureland was magical beyond belief and she’d love to tell you all her Disney secrets but she sold her soul to Mickey Mouse.
Jennifer eventually left her magic carpet behind and moved to the big city of Los Angeles. She quickly landed a job at E! Entertainment Television as a Production Assistant. After a year, Jennifer ascended the production ranks to Associate Producer. As an AP she conducted interviews with celebrities like Zooey Deschanel and wrote & produced segments for the Style Network. She also worked with the Associated Press for their coverage of the Oscars. Although she loved covering all things pop culture, Jennifer left to pursue her dream of being a server actress.
As an actress she has appeared on shows like ABC’s Better Off Ted (as a clueless magician’s assistant) and MTV’s Awkward. She has also appeared in numerous national commercials including Hebrew National, McDonalds, Toyota, T-Mobile, Ace Hardware, and Bud Light (Superbowl ad). You can currently see (and hear) Jennifer in a national Kmart commercial & radio campaign.
Jennifer’s lifelong love of Star Wars has inspired her many YouTube videos. Whether she’s searching for J.J. Abrams or creating a Sarlacc Pit Bundt Cake, the Force is strong with her and her videos. And at Star Wars Celebration VI in 2012, Jennifer was an on-camera host for StarWars.com. An avid crafter, Jennifer enjoys turning vintage Star Wars toys into jewelry and creating costumes out of non-traditional materials. Her Miss Death Star and Millennium Falcon cosplays have been featured on countless blogs and websites and in the pages of Entertainment Weekly.
Jennifer is a proud Latina, Southern California native, and an alumna of Second City LA. She’s also a contributor for The Official Star Wars Blog. In her spare time she karaokes around Koreatown and dresses her dog up in ridiculous costumes. She swears he loves it.
