For anyone who has ever moved to a new place, you know how difficult it can be. Well, model Jamie Leigh Thornton didn’t just move and need to adjust to a few small things, because she packed up her bags and left the bluegrass of Kentucky for the bright lights of Los Angeles to pursue her modeling and acting career. Talk about a culture shock, right?
As a fresh face in Hollywood, I wanted to talk with the 22-year-old Jamie Leigh — who is a dead ringer for Abigail Ratchford, in my personal opinion — to see how she’s holding up! So I reached out and asked her to describe the dating scene in L.A., some of the differences she’s seeing and, since her and I are both graduates of the University of Kentucky, I had to know how she felt about Kentucky basketball.
There will always be hot Instagram models out there, but Jamie Leigh Thornton seems to want to do even more than just modeling, so taking her talents to Los Angeles was a natural first step. As an All-American beauty who has a degree in political science, Jamie Leigh has the brains, beauty and drive to become the next “it” gal.
