It is not every day one learns of a structural engineer in Hollywood as an actress. But having taken an interest in performing arts since she was a child, studying structural engineering at the City College of New York was just a momentary diversion in her ultimate dream.

Before she graduated, she fed her love for dance at the National Dance Institute and, after graduation, became a print model. During her time as a print model, she worked with several of the biggest names in the fashion and cosmetics business, from L’Oréal Paris to Dark & Lovely, SoftSheen-Carson, and other companies like QVC and Essence Magazine. Undeniably, Jade Eshete was a success as a model.

She quickly gained mainstream recognition through appearances in the science-fiction show; Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.

Jade Eshete Has a Growing, Yet, Impressive Filmography

But it was after graduation that things went into a higher gear for the Brooklyn-born actress. She made her first on-screen appearance in the short film, Brooklove, playing the character, Mia.

That same year, after appearing in the two shows, Jade Eshete got her big break via the BBC America TV series, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, playing the character, Farah Black across 17 episodes of the show between 2016 and 2017.

Her performance in the show led to more appearances for Jade in other projects, playing more pivotal roles such as in Bruce!!!!, It’s Bruno and in Showtime hit show, Billions, where she plays the character, Lauren Turner.

Other credits to her name include Ramy, Materna, and Really Love. The Materna movie, released in 2020, is an indie movie written and produced by Jade. The film had three nominations at the Tribeca Film Festival, winning two of them.

It certainly has nothing with her looks either. A former model with a height of 5 feet 4 inches, she is undoubtedly an attractive woman. It would appear that she is focusing more on her developing career.

In that past, however, she revealed having a crush on a man named Jason Gong in high school. Other than that, there is no sign of a relationship on the horizon for the actress.
