Saturday Scream Queen: Jennifer Lee Wiggins
Tomboyish military brat Jennifer Lee Wiggins was born on a U.S. military base in Thailand. As a teen, she became interested in a career in law enforcement, and she got so far as earning a BS in Criminal Justice and proving herself to be talented with handguns and at martial arts.
But after she spent some time on the set of a Japanese television show, she fell in love with acting and the entertainment business. Leaving the path she had hoped would some day lead to a career with the FBI, Wiggins moved to Los Angeles for a career in make-believe.
After a small number of bit-parts, Wiggins emerged as a leading lady for The Asylum's modern-day exploitation films like "Shapeshifter", "King of the Lost World" (both in 2005), and "I Am Omega" (2007).
But no asylum could hold her, and she's appeared in horror films from other production outlets as well, including the SyFy Original Picture "Bone Eater" (2007), "Murder Inside Me" and "Bled" (both in 2009), as well as small parts on television series "Life" and "House".
Wiggins's next horror project is "Growl", a werewolf film starring Katee Sackhoff that is will be released some time in 2013.
