About Jill Marie Jones
Jill Marie Jones stars as Toni, the drop-dead gorgeous real estate agent with a comically overblown lust for money in the hit comedy series Girlfriends. The series is a production of Grammnet Productions and Happy Camper Productions in association with Paramount Television Production Division.
Jones, who landed the role as Toni while a relative newcomer to Hollywood, considers her role on Girlfriends to be her first "big break." Jones won the part following an exhaustive search for the right combination of comic timing, killer looks and intelligence. Prior to this series, she worked as a model and began studying with acting coach John Kirby. Jones also guest-starred on the Saturday morning teen series "City Guys."
A former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader and Dallas Mavericks Dancer, Jones has displayed her dancing skills and athletic prowess as a featured performer on "Monday Night Football" and "The Miss Texas Pageant." Jones also traveled the world as a dancer with the USO and has entertained U.S. troops stationed in Egypt, Korea, Japan and Israel.
An avid sportswoman, Jones enjoys basketball, volleyball, track, rollerskating and rollerblading.
