Jordan Christine Knapp was born in Sacramento, California to Starla Knapp,
a financial aid director, and Greg Knapp, a NFL football coach.
She was raised in San Francisco, Atlanta, Oakland, Seattle and Houston, but has found her biggest home to be on camera and on stage.
She refused to sit still throughout her childhood as she ran between
rehearsals for dance teams, cheer squads, choral groups and theatre troupes.
Knapp graduated from the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting for Film in 2016. Upon completion of her degree she has acted in many award-winning short and feature length films.
Knapp was named "Best Actress" at the 2019 Catalina Film Festival for her performance in "8" (2019) and presented with the Vanguard Award for "Best Actress in a Feature Film" at the 2023 Scotland International Festival of Cinema for her performance in "Tomorrow" (2023).
Knapp stays active on stage by co-running an LA-based theatre company,
Raccoon's Milk, and performing improv regularly with
the Penny Stinkers Improv Co.
A lover of languages (she proficiently speaks Spanish and Portuguese), cooking and one-liners, Knapp now resides in Los Angeles.
