PremierLeague-News.Com - Jessica Laine has enjoyed a varied career, including starring as Jenny Lee in the first three series of Call the Midwife
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! You might know her best as Jenny Lee from the BBC One series Call the Midwife, but actress Jessica Laine has appeared in some of the most celebrated stage and TV shows of the last decade. During series two of the immensely popular BBC One crime drama, Line of Duty, Jessica, playing DC Georgia Trotman, met a grisly demise. DC Trotman and DC Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) got too close to the action during an investigation, resulting in a tragic ending. The two were ambushed by a man disguised as a nurse, with DC Arnott getting knocked out. The man threw poor DC Trotman out of the window of the hospital ward as she tried to protect the witness. Jessica's first screen credits were an appearance in a 2009 episode of Garrow's Law and a small role in the 2010 film Robin Hood, direct by Ridley Scott. She starred as the lead character Jenny Lee in the first three series of the BBC One drama Call the Midwife. On March 9, 2014, it was announced that Jessica was leaving the show at the end of series 3 to pursue a career in film in the United States, much to the disappointment of many ardent fans. Jessica has played at the National Theatre in Mike Bartlett's Earthquakes in London as teenage wild-child Jasmine and then as a secretary in the revival of Clifford Odets's Rocket to the Moon. She has also appeared in Ghosts and Punk Rock, for which she won the Manchester Evening News Award for Best Supporting Actress. In 2017, Raine played Alison Laithwaite in the BBC One drama The Last Post, which she has described as "My favourite character I’ve played so far, ever.

This was seen as a very different role to her 'Midwife' character. Her role in the TV adaptation of the Patrick Melrose novels is also a world away from Jessica's Call the Midwife days. The critically-acclaimed Sky drama stars Benedict Cumberbatch and chronicles the immensely tragic and darkly comic life of its title character, loosely based on the author, Edward St Aubyn's life. Jessica's last credit on IMDB is the fantasy film Carmilla and we can't wait to see her on our screens again.
