Jocelyn Panton is a rising Canadian talent and vivacious on-screen presence. Born and raised on the edge of a lake in Abbotsford, British Columbia, she enjoyed an active childhood alongside four rambunctious brothers.
As a child, Jocelyn attended a play and fell in love with the performing arts. With beginnings in singing and dancing, she was inspired to pursue a career in acting. She began to take theatre lessons in high-school, and spent her summers taking improvisation classes. Her dedication to pursuing a career in acting solidified when she graduated from the Broadcast Performing Arts program at Columbia Academy and continued training through both workshops and immersing herself in Vancouver’s colorful arts scene.
Her first professional role came in Chris Columbus’ blockbuster adventure film, Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief. This immediate exposure to the set of a major project invigorated Jocelyn’s call to acting. Since then, Jocelyn has appeared in several hit series, including Bravo’s “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce”, Hallmark’s “Cedar Cove”, Hulu’s “Shut Eye” and most recently The CW’s “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” where she portrays Marilyn Monroe.
Recently, Jocelyn has also appeared in several exciting film projects, including the 2019 reboot of the cult classic, Critters: A New Binge, Lifetime’s Best Friend’s Betrayal and Hallmark’s A Gingerbread Romance.
When she isn’t working, Jocelyn cherishes time with her family and friends. She also enjoys playing the piano and unwinding in the gorgeous nature around her home in Vancouver, British Columbia.
