Career:

In May 1994, 14-year-old Jenny Wade made her first appearance on screen in an episode of ABC/CBS sitcom "Step by Step." Five years later, she returned to television on MTV anthology series "Undressed." And after being recruited by director Neil LaBute's to star opposite Aaron Eckhart in his 10-minute film Tumble, the filmmaker offered her an uncredited role in his 2000 comedy film, Nurse Betty, starring Renée Zellweger, Morgan Freeman, Chris Rock and Greg Kinnear.

Following her film debut, Jenny returned to the small screen. She guest starred in an October 2000 episode of the syndicated nonfiction TV program "Arrest & Trial" and a January 2003 episode of the comedy show "8 Simple Rules... for Dating My Teenage Daughter." She also starred in ABC romantic drama movie Naked Hotel (2003), alongside John Corbett.

2005 saw Jenny went back to the big screen, playing Jane Fonda's young replacement in Robert Luketic's romantic comedy film, Monster-in-Law, which also marked Fonda's first film in 15 years. It also stars Jennifer Lopez and Michael Vartan.

That same year, Jenny was also busy filming four other films. She could be seen in Wes Craven's drama/thriller Red Eye (starring Rachel McAdams, Cillian Murphy and Brian Cox), Harold Ramis' neo-noir/comedy-drama based on the novel by Scott Phillips, The Ice Harvest (with John Cusack, Billy Bob Thornton and Connie Nielsen), and John Gulager's horror film Feast (alongside Krista Allen). She also shared the screen with Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Costner and Shirley MacLaine in Rob Reiner's 2005 comedy film, Rumor Has It...

Recently, in 2006, Jenny co-starred with Daryl Hannah, John Patrick Amedori, Lizzy Caplan and Jonathon Trent in Elliott Lester's suspenseful drama, Love Is the Drug. She is currently filming her upcoming films: The Strip, a comedy by writer-director Jameel Khan starring Dave Foley, and No Reservations, Scott Hicks’ remake of the German comedy Mostly Martha starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Aaron Eckhart.
