Jeanene Fox: Bahamian Actress, Supermodel Lands Role in Another Italian Film
Bahamian actress Jeanene Fox has landed a role in another Italian mini-series.
Ms. Fox is in the midst of building a stellar acting career in Europe. Her casting as an investigative reporter in the mini-series, The Bodyguard, marks the second notable role she has earned in Italy. She also appeared recently in the Italian feature comedy, AmeriQua.
In The Bodyguard, Ms. Fox plays a member of an investigative News Team from Los Angeles that travels to the island of Malta to report on a complex murder case. Tension soon rises as the team uncovers many truths that have serious implications for the island’s justice system. Eventually, they are forced to hire a bodyguard to protect them as they reveal the truth about the case.
About Jeanene: As a smart but waif thin schoolgirl attending Nassau’s Kingsway Academy, the once shy Jeanene was often taunted with the nickname “Bean-Pole Jeanene” – a moniker she would ultimately wear proudly when those legs that spanned for days and striking appearance – catapulted her into international success.Jeanene is a stunningly splendid mix of her native Bahamian father and Italian-Canadian mother (who was a former world champion medal-winning athlete and Olympic high jumper in the 1964 Tokyo Olympics).
A gifted athlete like her mother and brother (her eldest siblings Rick Fox a three-time World Champion Los Angeles Lakers NBA basketball player) – Jeanene excelled in many sports including softball, swimming and track and field – the family room’s shelves quickly crowded with her awards and trophies. However, friends thought Jeanene far too feminine too pursue a career in sports – but as luck would have it, she wouldn’t have to.
