Her Role

One day, Jess was being weighed at the hospital when on that same day the Teletubbies Producer was looking for smiley, giggling babies to use for the sun when the show first aired. They put a mirror and camera in front of Jess while she was sat in a highchair. She watched her dad and laughed at him, as he was playing with toy cars. Unfortunately, her role ended in 2001. There is now a Teletubbies reboot with a new sun face, Berry
