Jacquie looks familiar, it may be because you caught her singing
and dancing while wearing a Foghorn Leghorn prosthetic costume
at Valencia's storied Six Flags Magic Mountain in the mid- 90's.
Other rent-paying endeavors include working as Visual Effects
Producer for Sony Picture Imageworks (where she was promoted
relentlessly, despite her best efforts) on such movies as "Contact;"
"Paulie:A Parrot's Tale;" "The Ninth Gate",
"Stuart Little", "Stuart Little 2", "Spider-man",
"Riding in Cars with Boys" and "The Haunted Mansion"
and most recently, Ridley Scott's "Body of Lies".
In 2002 she was the Producer of Imageworks' first in-house animated
short film :"The ChubbChubbs" which went on to win
the 2002 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film.
If she sounds familiar, it's because you've heard her mellifluous
tones in gobs of commercials and voice-overs, or possibly on
your answering machine guilting you to come see her in the theater.
She wrote and produced and starred in the theater production
of "Jax of All Trades", a glorious celebration of
her career in the arts, and her excavation of that rich vein
of wealth, the American Stage. One reviewer of that particular
production claimed that he would gladly listen to her read the
phone book. Other roles on stage include Eliza Doolittle in
"My Fair Lady" and Mary the Cop in the all female
version of "The Odd Couple" on the hallowed boards
of the Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas. She also appeared as Dinah in
“Steven Berkoff''s "Brighton Beach Scumbags" at the
Lillian Theater in Hollywood opposite the legendary “Ron Bottitta”.
is currently focusing her energy on her production company,
"Reel Vox, Inc." She wrote and produced her first
short film, 'Wear Something Nice” for which she was nominated
for Best Actress at the 2005 Methodfest. Jacquie had the pleasure
of working with Miguel Arteta in his film “The Good Girl” and
Todd Phillips film “Old School.” Her voice over work with the
Dreamworks Feature Animation group inspired a couple of key
roles in “Shrek”, “Shrek2” and recently “Shrek The Third.” Her
TV appearances include the last episode of the “The Practice",
“The George Lopez Show", “Pepper Dennis”, “Vanished” and
the last scene with Mandy Patinkin on "Criminal Minds".
Although 3 of the 5 shows were yanked from the airwaves shortly
after Jacquie’s involvement, the Producers, her Manager and
her Therapist have assured her that it was through no fault
of hers. She has managed to overcome her guilt and managed to
be cast in some substantial films in 2006, Oceans 13, The Great
Buck Howard and Beowulf, all due out in 2007. 2008 starts off
with a bang shooting Robert Zemeckis' remake of "A Christmas
Carol" starring Jim Carey as Scrooge and the release of
"Winged Creatures" with an all-star cast headed up
by Forest Whitaker.
Barnbrook hopes her success will someday lead to her being cast
as an angel in her Elementary School Christmas play, and not
being, once again, forced into the role of the fucking Narrator.
