From the leader of a depression-era motorcycle gang, to a feared and skillful meta-human bounty hunter, and a monster-hunting FBI agent, Jessica Camacho has brought dynamic female characters to life, showcasing her ability to illuminate their strong inner compass, unshakeable drive and sheer determination.
In summer 2019, Camacho will appear on the sci-fi drama series “Another Life,” opposite Katee Sackhoff and Selma Blair. Most recently, Camacho starred in the second season of the action/thriller series “Taken,” based on the internationally renowned blockbuster film franchise. Also, she has appeared in the DC Comics world, and is well known for her recurring role on THE FLASH. Her character Gypsy, a fierce, meta-human from Earth19, is a fan favorite and one of the most notorious bounty hunters in the multiverse.

On the film front, Camacho has been seen in “Think like a Man,” “Veronica Mars” and “Roman J. Israel, Esq.,” opposite Denzel Washington.
Born in Chicago, Camacho got her first taste of acting when she took an acting class at the suggestion of a friend. She instantly fell in love with stepping inside someone else’s shoes and life circumstances, and decided to make the move west. Her move brought her to San Francisco, where she supported herself as a waitress while taking night classes at the renowned American Conservatory Theatre. She went on to work in theater and television in Chicago, where she was able to obtain her Screen Actors Guild membership card before settling in Los Angeles full-time.
When she isn’t on set, Camacho can be found looking for her next adventure. Whether it’s taking a local road trip, or hopping on a plane to explore a remote spot across the globe, discovering new places and cultures is a burgeoning joy of hers. Camacho works with charities that share her passions, which include protecting the planet, helping the needy and forgotten, working with groups that help people develop skills and passions that can change their lives and being a voice for abused and neglected animals.
Camacho currently resides in Los Angeles with her pup, Jules. Her birthday is Nov. 26. Follow her on Twitter and Instagram @jcamacho.
