About Jodi BALFOUR

Moving from the intimate, familiar acting community of Cape Town to the disparate and competitive show business-world of Los Angeles has been testing for South African actor Jodi Balfour – but also ‘incredibly inspiring and exciting and satisfying’. Taking the leap has seen her land roles in a range of acclaimed productions, including playing Jackie Kennedy in The Crown, and starring in For All Mankind and Ted Lasso on Apple TV+. She’s even found time to start her own coffee shop and bakery in Vancouver. We spoke to Jodi about creative life in LA, the entertainment community, connecting with local culture, and her favorite American phrase.
