Jones first found fame in daytime on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, where she played Megan Dennison from 1997-2000. She also received two Daytime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series for her performances on Y&R. In 2004, she joined the cast of B&B as Dr. Bridget Forrester, taking over for Jennifer Finnigan. She remained on the CBS sudser until 2012, though she has returned periodically since then for brief guest appearances. In January of 2016, Jones returned to daytime again to play Kristina’s former professor Parker Forsythe on GH. After her initial run, she returned for a couple more appearances in the summer, then came back for her latest storyline in August of 2017.
Outside of daytime, fans will recognize Jones from her role as Merlotte’s waitress Daphne Landry in season two of HBO’s supernatural drama TRUE BLOOD. She has also starred in a number of Lifetime movies, including A Teacher’s Crime, Dead at 17, Secrets From Her Past, A Sister’s Revenge, and The Secret Sex Life of a Single Mom.
In real life, Jones is happily married to her husband, Joel, Henricks, and in May of 2016, the couple welcomed their son, Hayden. Henricks already has a little boy, Huck, from a previous relationship. And what better way to celebrate Jones’ big day than with a beautiful photo gallery full of adorable shots of little Hayden’s first year!
