Actress and model Jasmine Waltz was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and had to overcome an extremely difficult childhood in order to be a successful entertainer. To her credit, Waltz is a fairly resilient young lady who had to cope with a lot of traumatic experiences and problems at such a young age. Her father had committed suicide and she was often abandoned by her mother.
There were other people in her life that reached out to her and made things more bearable during her childhood. Still their efforts were not enough to keep this young lady from being a troubled individual. Also, the young girl had to live in and out of homeless shelters and group homes with her mother whenever she was around.
During her teenage years Waltz got involved in some type of crime (it’s not clear about the type of crime that she had committed) that landed her in a maximum security prison for girls. She was released after serving a two year sentence. After she was set free from jail she decided to change the course of her life. Waltz still did not have a stable life because she traveled to about eight different cities before she settled into Miami, Florida.
Once she was in Miami she started to find work in commercials and as a model. She also enrolled at the University of Performing arts and worked in a night club to help pay her way through school. About four years later she went to Los Angeles and auditioned for television commercials. She also was able to land work with modeling agencies. Eventually, Waltz was able to go work in movies and her first role was that of a video store clerk in the movie Bad Boy II. Waltz is one actress that has over come a lot of adversity and drama in her life in order to establish a career in Hollywood.
