“Trish” | Blindspotting
All Eyes on Blindspotting
Growing up in Southern California, Jaylen Barron knew from a young age she wanted to be an actress. As part of a multicultural family, she took great pride in her African American and Latina heritage. She was dismayed to find very few actors that looked like her onscreen. Driven by a desire to make a change, Barron decided that she wanted to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
Barron's first foray on the small screen came when she was cast as Melanie on Disney’s “Shake It Up”. Shortly after, she recurred on Nickelodeon's “See Dad Run” as Emily’s best friend Mary, as well as “Good Luck Charlie” as Lauren Dabney, the love interest of Gabe Duncan. Other memorable appearances include guest spots on “Bones” and “Those Who Can’t”. Though these were some of her very first performances, her talent did not go unnoticed and earned her four Young Artist Awards nominations. Her big break came when she landed a heavily recurring role on Showtime’s Emmy®-winning drama series “Shameless”.
