A big break in the rising stars career was when she was 12 years old and Biel attended The International Modeling and Talent Association conference in Los Angeles, where she was heavily scouted by modeling and talent agencies. After two years of many auditions and showcases, Biel was selected as the 2nd oldest child (Mary Camden) in the soon to be hit show 7th Heaven.
Jessica Biel was front and center on mainstream television on 7th Heaven from seasons 1-8 and recurring again for season 10. This total span of time with 7th Heaven lasted from 1996 until 2006, right before the show stopped airing. This is definitely a huge stepping stone for Jessica Biel as she then went on to star in many more shows and even motion pictures.
Without missing a beat in 1997 after the discontinuing of 7th Heaven, Biel hit the ground running and landed a significant role as Peter Fonda’s granddaughter in the film Ulee’s Gold.
