|Biography: Even as a child, Jaime Soria had a flair for the dramatic and a kinship with the arts. Her non-stop talking and quick wit saddled her with the nickname "Miss Chatterbox" at the tender age of 5. Once kindergarten began, Jaime's mom, Linda' could look forward to non-stop chatter floating forward from the backseat of the car as Jaime described, in detail, every minute of her day at school. Not wanting to stifle her child's creative energy, or hurt her feelings, Linda struggled to think of a way to quiet her daughter for a few blessed moments. Eventually, she came up with the phrase "Jaime, Mommy's ears are tired right now." Luckily, this did the trick.
Jamie's interest in performing grew as she did. She was able to find many creative outlets for her energy by enrolling in various dance classes and taking up the piano, a passion which continued for 13 years. But while watching Steven Spielberg's "Tiny Toon Adventures", an eight year old Jamie made the decision to become an actress. Watching the very dramatic Babs Bunny (who dreamed of becoming a famous actress herself), Jamie fell in love with the idea of pretending to be other people and performing stories for an audience. If Babs could amuse her cartoon friends with her impressions and pretend games, so could Jamie!
After years of musical performances (Jaime"s extensive list of musical instruments currently includes piano, flute, guitar and bells, and voice: mezzo-soprano), performing skits and shows for loved ones and generally striving to become the constant center of attention, Jaime began studying theatre and film at Ohlone College in Fremont, California where she ultimately received her A.A. degree in Performing Arts. While attending Ohlone College, Jaime won three acting awards: two student-voted awards presented by the Theatre and Dance Alliance and one annual award given by the professors and staff to the Best Actress of the student body. Jaime has been trained in and gained valuable experience in all corners of the entertainment industry including film, television, theater, commercial, industrial, news broadcasting, and print venues. She has most recently wrapped an industrial project for Hitachi starring Mr. T and taken on the role of the "Waitress" in the Feature Film "Delusion". Keep an eye out for her many upcoming projects!
