On stage, she co-starred as Julia in a revival of "Two Gentlemen of Verona" at the Public Theater's "Shakespeare in the Park" and appeared in "The Vagina Monologues".She lucked into and got to show off her singing chops in the film adaptation of the hit New York musical Rent (2005), when Daphne Rubin-Vega, the original Mimi, became pregnant and was unable to reprise her exotic dancer role.
She is also featured on the Outkast track, "She Lives in My Lap".
For Oliver Stone, she portrayed the duped bride of Colin Farrell's famed B. Macedonian warrior, Alexander (2004) (as in "..Great"), which featured a notoriously violent-tinged nude/sex scene.
Expanding her horizons beyond film, she has always expressed interest in singing.
Off-camera, the still-single Dawson is highly active in political, social and environmental causes and has been involved with such organizations/charities/campaigns as the Lower East Side Girls Club, Global Cool, the O. In October 2008, she lent her voice to the RESPECT!
Campaign, a movement aimed at preventing domestic violence.
I really think that this girl is just about the hottest thing going. I don't know if I have said this before, but I think that if I could spend the night with any one of our girls, it might just be her. I think that she is still tops on my list for a girl that I would like to spend a weekend with. Here she is in her usual leopard print and a t-shirt. when you are this hot it does not matter what you wear... It is the amazing Jessics Dawson and she is looking as good as ever.
She has this perfect milky white skin and then the blazing red hair.. This video was a little out of focus so I did not want to make it a daily post, but there is no way I can keep anything from this girl away from you guys. Well look who is back on the site for some more updates. her red hair, her amazing white skin, her amazing body.. Since then, she has moved into main-stream hits (and misses) and has surprised viewers with her earthy, provocative, uninhibited approach to her roles.Reflecting New York's tougher, tawdrier side as assorted streetwalkers, homeless mothers, drug addicts, etc., her film highlights have included Light It Up (1999), Edward Burns' Sidewalks of New York (2001), Spike Lee's 25th Hour (2002) and Shattered Glass (2003).This stunning and resourceful actress has been primarily a film player thus far.Only recently has she been opening herself up more to doing television (the series Gemini Division (2008), which she executive-produced), and animated voice-overs.Dawson's powerhouse talent stands out the most in edgy, urban filming that dates back to 1995 when she was only sixteen.
