Jess Ciancio is an Australian actor, writer and comedian. The daughter of Italian migrants, she grew up split between two cultures, from which she draws much of her comedic inspiration.
She wrote her first big project in 2021, a comedy web series about the Melbourne Coffee scene called "Hot Skinny Latte", which was part of the official selection at the 2022 London International Web and Shorts Festival. Jess was also a semi-finalist for “best female performance”.
Her theatre accolades include Melbourne International Comedy Festival shows "2 Animals (That don't traditionally get along)" and "Scary Goats Tour".
Her recent work includes her role as Sigrid, in the Screen Australia comedy "The Followers" and her role as Erin in the Indie Dark Comedy feature "The Organist".
