Jackie remembers herself as being very shy the first time she went on set, "It was a Venus Film Production titled Divine Love and I had to play the role of Kate, the protagonist. I didn’t believe I did too good. I fumbled but many people did not notice it." Despite her nerves the first timer said she succeeded in impressing everyone.
