Role Jody Long
When her childhood home is put up for sale, young journalist Tamara Drewe leaves the hustle and bustle of London for the small, sleepy Dorset town in which she was brought up. While re-acclimatizing to country life, however, her feelings for her old teenage flame Ben start to reawaken.
Jessica plays local schoolgirl Jody Long, who, along with her partner-in-crime Casey Shaw (Charlotte Christie), sets about engineering a private meeting with Ben, who happens to be the subject of their teenage crushes.
