She’s a Catch 

Trishauna Clarke, runner-up in the 2012 Miss Jamaica World contest, has landed a recurring role in the new ABC television series The Catch.

The drama, which stars Mireille Enos and Peter Krause, premiered on March 24 and, according to Neilsen data, drew an estimated 5.85 million viewers.

The Jamaica Observer caught up with Clarke last weekend. She spoke about her character and how she got involved in

The Catch.

“Tasha is a well-kept woman who is educated but not currently working. I am dating a high-profiler (Teddy Seavers) who always strives to give me the world. I play a vital part in the storyline because I make Teddy realise the damage he is doing to himself and our relationship,” she explained.

Clarke credits her management for helping her snare the role. She recalled getting the ‘sides’ one day before going into to audition.

Born in Kingston, Clarke finished second to Deanna Robins in Miss Jamaica four years ago. She has been acting since five years old while a pupil of Stella Maris Preparatory.

Her first acting gig then was a Nestlè Milk television commercial. Recent credits include commercials for Gatorade, Lexus (Super Bowl), and Puma Jam with Usain Bolt.

Clarke, who resides in Hollywood, California, studied at the University Of Miami where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Later at Florida Atlantic University, she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology.

She took acting lessons in Florida and Los Angeles, attending the Imagined Life Acting School.

In addition to The Catch, she is busy with other projects.

“I recently wrapped a movie, No More Mr Nice Guy, that will be coming out the end of this year, and also the feature film Greater, which is a true story. It will be in theatres this summer.”
