Amy Jackson Facts
Jackson’s role as Amy Wilkinson in Bollywood movie Madrasapattinam was her first-ever attempt at acting. Like, ever.
The first film sold out for six straight weeks at the Indian box office. We know, because we tried to get tickets.
Amy once swam with sharks to raise money for The Children’s Variety Club.
Why We Love Amy Jackson
Isle Of Wight-er Amy got her big break when she won Miss Teen World 2008; a contract with a modelling agency was part of her prize, and after seeing her pics on the model agency’s website, a big-deal Bollywood producer got in touch to see if she’d be interested in starring in his next movie. That film – entitled Madrasapattinam, about a British Governor’s daughter (Amy) in 1947 India – was a huuuge success – it was basically India’s Titanic – and made Amy the huge Bollywood star that she is today. Kind of a weird and random success story, but a success story nonetheless.
In 2010, Amy took time out from being Bollywood’s favourite Brit to appear in FHM’s Lingerie Special, for which we will be forever – forever and ever – grateful.
