Joelle is a professional actress, singer-songwriter and media creator. Joelle started creating music and videos as a child, becoming an internationally recognised alopecia awareness campaigner by the time she was 13. In 2019, Joelle directed and performed in her first short film Cover Up, featuring original sound recordings composed by Oscar-nominated songwriter Diane Warren. Joelle made her feature film debut in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune (2021), plays the character ‘Joelle’ in Paul Feig’s Netflix film The School for Good and Evil (2022) and the role of ‘Vipsania’ in season two of MGM+ and Sky’s TV drama Domina (2023).

Joelle has had alopecia since the age of 8 and became an ambassador for Alopecia UK at the age of 15.

Joelle says: “I became an ambassador for Alopecia UK because I didn’t have a positive role model to inspire me when I was growing up. I want to help pave the way for the next generation and show others that alopecia shouldn't stop you.”
