Jessica Alba’s career in the entertainment industry formally began when she showed an interest in acting at the age of five. She convinced her mother to take her to an acting competition in Beverly Hills when she was eleven years old, and there she won the top prize—a year’s worth of free acting classes.
Nine months after signing with an agent, she began her acting career. She had her debut small-scale acting role as Gail in the 1994 film Camp Nowhere. Her job was initially supposed to last for two weeks, but it was extended to two months when another actress backed out.
Jessica has previously appeared in television commercials for J. C. Penney and Nintendo. After dabbling in independent film, she appeared as the vain Jessica in three episodes of the Nickelodeon comedy series The Secret World of Alex Mack in 1994.
For the first two seasons of the 1995 television series Flipper, she portrayed Maya. Jessica’s swimming skills, which she honed under her mother’s guidance as a lifeguard, helped her well in the Australian movie Flipper.
