Rogue Cinema Sleepover Girl – December 2011
All about Sandra-Jessica:
Location: New Brunswick
Some of my favorite things: The beach, mangos, sushi, Thai food, the outdoors, Great Pyrenees and horses.
Most people would be surprised to know that I: am a total farm girl.
Hobbies / special skills: Walking my dogs and riding horses.
Number of years acting / modeling: 15+
Favorite genre(s) and or film(s): My favourite genres are: film Noirs. Independents. Comedies. Musicals. Action. Westerns. I will watch anything as long as it has a good story to it. I like films that are real. I’m not big on science fiction but I will still watch some of it.
Acting / modeling gigs that I’m the most proud of: I don’t really have that one gig that I am most proud of. I am proud of all my work. Every gig I do requires a lot of work and it is always so much different from one to another, it is almost uncomparable. I love what I do so I guess that makes me proud. 🙂
What I look for in a potential acting or modeling job: Professionalism! A great team. A good script with of course a great director or photographer. Life is too short to stress out, especially at work when you love your job, so a great environment is a definite. BUT I can work with anyone, after working on sets for years you become numb to the negativity. 🙂

Sandra-Jessica Couturier was born March 30, 1976 and raised in Edmundston, New Brunswick to Joan Couturier and Fernand LeBrun. Couturier has always been inspired by Arts. At 6, she joined The St-John’s Valley Dancers Troup where she performed and toured with the troop as one of the main dancers. Her parents separated when she was 13 years old. After the divorce her mother decided to go live with her sisters in Northern California and took her daughter with her. Couturier, who always was really interested in acting, decided to join her local Theatre group where she starred in The Wizard of Oz as Dorothy 2 years in a row. She decided to return to Canada to be able to graduate with her family and friends. Happy to be back home, she decided to join The Main Street Dancers where she toured the Canadian East coast for 3 years.
She then decided it was time for a change and was accepted in Police Techniques in Rimouski, Quebec. After working as a police officer for 6 months Couturier decided it wasn’t what she really wanted and moved to Ottawa, Ontario to pursue her dancing career. She performed in two Gap commercials as a dancer. To be able to perfect her career she went to night school at Ottawa University to improve her English skills.
Looking for more of a challenge, she moved to Vancouver where she started working as a background actor in feature films, TV shows and commercials. She is featured in many shows and films, such as True Calling, The L Word, Dead like Me also Miracle, Paycheck, Scooby too, Chronicles of Riddick, Walking Tall,White Chicks, etc. Couturier has worked on many independent films in the Vancouver& LA area as the lead/principal . Couturier attended New Image for The Arts of Performing full time where she graduated with the Arts of performing diploma in 2006. In her spare time Couturier enters 24 & 48 hour and Crazy 8’s film fests as she enjoys working with anyone and is very passionate about her career. She is very versatile and fearless.
