Jade West is a smart, beautiful, talented, sixteen year old girl, and she knows it.
She doesn't bother pretending to be something she's not and hates people who do. This may seem strange considering that she is an actress. There is however, a difference between the two. Jade firmly believed that acting is about life and about bringing the character, who before was simply words on a page, into reality. Breathing life into a character is the job of the actor, providing themselves as mediums so that their story can be told.
People who pretend to be something that they are not in real life were pathetic to her.
