Jessie Cave studied Illustration and Animation at Kingston University, London, and worked backstage at various theaters before deciding to pursue an acting career. She made her professional acting debut in the role of Stella in the British telefilm Summerhill, based on the controversial and bohemian school in Suffolk.
Cave also gained a place at the prestigious Oxford School of Drama, but before she could attend she learned she won the coveted role of Lavender Brown, Ron Weasley's overzealous and affectionate first girlfriend in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and decided to postpone her enrolment.
In her spare time, Cave writes and draws and has a passion for illustration.
