Jessica Louise Origliasso (pron.: // oor-IG-lee-AH-soh; born 25 December 1984) is an Australian singer-songwriter, actress and fashion designer. Born and raised in Albany Creek, Queensland she, alongside twin sister Lisa Origliasso, performed in show business at a young age. Origliasso rose to fame in 2000's when she and her sister formed a pop duo The Veronicas.
Prior to The Veronicas, Origliasso had a small career in acting. In 2001, she had a recurring role in the children's television series Cybergirl as Emerald Buxton. In 2007, she co-designed a fashion line with, her sister, called The Veronicas, aimed at girls aged 7–14, for Target. Origliasso has been endorsed by Nu:U, Calvin Klein, Keds and Estée Lauder
In 2008, nude pictures surfaced that were rumored to be of Jessica on various sites - amongst them fleshbot.com. Within her fanbase there was an initial disbelief that the pictures were real. Then a campaign was organised to support her by baring themselves similarly. Jessica asked them not to because she was worried it would cause people to believe she had incited the pictures.
Jessica and Lisa Origliaso also joined a "Wear it with Pride" campaign to reform same-sex laws in Australia for the 85 legislative changes made in 2010 to overturn discrimination against same-sex couples and their families. The campaign involved them wearing numbered T-shirts representing each legislative change.
In 2010 Jessica was honoured with her sister as Wildlife Warriors of the year for their efforts in publicizing animal protection and conservation on a worldwide scale.
