Jane By Design Cast & Jane By Design Characters
Erica Dasher plays Jane Quimby, the star of this series. She’s described as quirky and stylish, but still in high school. But she get’s a major break when someone mistakes her for someone else (someone older.) Now she can work in the fashion world (her dream life!), as long as she lives this lie.
Andie MacDowell has taken up the role of Gray Chandler Murray, a well-traveled fashion executive. Gray is a busy boss and has no time for anything less than perfection. She’d likely flip if she knew her new assistant Jane was still a high school student!
Here’s Jane’s little family at Donovan Decker.
Here are some of Jane’s best and closest friends at high school. They all look pretty stylish themselves, huh?
Let’s take a close up of Billy Nutter. He’s played by Nick Roux. Billy is Jane’s best friend from childhood, and he’s the one who knows all of her secrets and will help her do anything. But he’s holding onto a secret of his own – it has to do with him and Jane’s nemesis, Lulu. (He’s dating Lulu!) Oh Billy, how could you do this to us? We (assume) she’s such a brat!
David Clayton Rogers plays Jane’s Brother, Ben Quimby. Their father has passed away so he’s quit college to come home and be the parent for Jane.
Meagan Tandy plays Lulu Lulu Pope. She’s the most popular girl at Jane’s school and also Jane’s nemesis. Secretly, Lulu is dating Jane’s friend Billy. Scandal! Lulu has always been really mean to Jane.
There’s another villain in Jane’s life! This time it’s the work villain… India de Beaufort as India Jourdain. She is an associate designer at Donovan Decker and Gray’s former assistant. India doesn’t like Jane and tries to make everything harder for her. Naturally India wants Gray’s job!
Matthew Atkinson stars as Nick Fadden. Every girl has one major crush in HS and this is Jane’s. In fact, she’s like this popular guy for a long time. He’s a jock and has always overlooked Jane, until recently…
Jeremy Jones is played by Rowly Dennis. He’s the ladies man at Donovan Decker, and he happens to like Jane! But will the feeling be mutual?
