Early Life and Education

Jessie Buckley was born on December 28, 1989 in Killarney, Ireland to Tim and Marina. She has three younger sisters as well as a younger brother. As a youth, Buckley went to Ursuline Secondary School, an all-girls convent school where her mother works as a vocal coach. There, she performed in various school productions, often playing male roles such as Tony in "West Side Story" and Freddie in "Chess." Buckley went on to attend the Royal Irish Academy of Music, where she played clarinet, harp, and piano and was a member of the Tipperary Millennium Orchestra. During the summer, she attended workshops organized by the Association of Irish Musical Societies.

Career Beginnings

Buckley began her career in 2008 as a contestant on the BBC television talent show "I'd Do Anything," which was designed to find a new, unknown actor to play Nancy in a West End revival of the musical "Oliver!" Ultimately, Buckley finished in second place. Later in the year, she performed at the Andrew Lloyd Webber's Birthday in the Park show in London's Hyde Park. Although Buckley was soon given the opportunity to understudy Nancy in "Oliver!," she declined the offer to appear instead in a revival of the musical "A Little Night Music" at the Menier Chocolate Factory. The show eventually transferred to the West End before closing in the summer of 2009.

In early 2013, Buckley graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. That summer, she appeared in productions of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" and Samuel Adamson's "Gabriel." Later in 2013, Buckley starred opposite Jude Law in a West End production of "Henry V." The following year, she acted for the first time on television in an episode of the British detective series "Endeavour."
