Jamie Clayton: From Make-Up Artist to Actress and Advocate

Uncover the inspiring story of Jamie Clayton, a talented make-up artist turned actress who broke barriers and made history in the entertainment industry.

Jamie Clayton – Her Story

Once upon a time, on 15 January 1978, Jamie was assigned male at birth. She grew up in sunny San Diego, CA with her parents. Her dad, Howard, was a defense attorney, and her mom, Shelley, was an event planner.

Jamie always had a passion for make-up, and at 19, she jetted off to New York to pursue her dream of becoming a make-up artist and to start her transition. She even landed a gig on VH1’s first makeover show, TRANSform Me, in 2010, where she co-hosted and worked her make-up magic.

But Jamie didn’t stop there. Oh no, she went on to launch her acting career the following year, snagging a lead role in the third season of HBO’s Hung. She then starred in the interactive web-series Dirty Work and was cast as Carla Favers in Are We There Yet?

Talk about a boss lady!
