Welcome to my site. My name is Jeanie, AKA
Jeanie Jefferies. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I moved
to the Midwest in September of 1993. When I left the Burgh
that fall, 5 movies were being produced there!
I had always been a spooky/thriller movie fan. Loved the Twilight
Zone series. Then enjoyed the Chiller Theater shows.
I began modeling in 1969, and actually did live TV commercials
for the agency I joined and performed in spots on Studio Wrestling
and Chiller Theater too.
Before long, I was working in radio as the
96 "KXCall Girl", ( Pittsburghs WTAE FM station)
, and that is how I got to know Tom Savini and George Romero.
I will share that story another time soon.
It was such great fun to be working as both Actress and Make-Up
Artist for their films "Dawn of the Dead" and "Knightriders"
with George Romero and his super crew and cast members.
Briefly, my background also includes Special Effects Make-Up,
Consulting, Casting Director, Producing/Directing, and tons of
Industrial Shows, Radio Spots, TV Commercials, and Video Conferences.
I am also in the "Scream Queens", "Fantasy Girls"
and "Dawn of the Dead" trading card sets as well as
appearing as "Just Imagine Jeanie" in Questar Magazine.
That too was a lot of fun!! (another cool story for later).
Currently I am writing a book and living in the Midwest with
my husband, our Newfoundland Zoe, Bristol our Maine Coon cat,
4 Doves and a fish aquarium.
Thanks for visiting my new site - Since I know that many of you
are interested in my work on the movies, I'll be adding new information
regularly about both of the George Romero films I worked on,
"Dawn of the Dead" and "Knightriders". I
have a lot of photos to share and a number of other interesting
things in my archives; there are even a few of my own creations
to share with you too. READ MORE
