Jo Wheatley is an English actress. Although not listed in the episode end credits, she has played a role as an extra in a considerable number of episodes of the ITV crime drama Midsomer Murders.

Jo has never been afraid to take on challenges in life. Cameo roles in TV and film are where she now excels. Every day is an adventure. A childhood determination to work with wild animals led to a long career as a zoo keeper until injuries started to take their toll. Amazing experiences and a cherry, unflappable temperament have produced an appreciation for making the most of life.

Acting has been a part of life from an early age. Non-verbal communication skills are essential for working safely around all sentient beings, be they big cats, great apes and especially humans. These skills transfer into the acting world, especially as a character actress conveying extremes of emotions through facial expression and body language.

Massive live sports and music fan. Can throw herself into anything if needed, not bad at kicking a football about. Absolute demon at quizzes, smiling assassin.

Used acting skills to the max while working as a prison officer at HMP Parkhurst. Switching facial expression from approachable to intimidating to pacifying a speciality.

An archetypal risk taking, impulsive, enthusiastic Aries. Animal obsessed and owner of 3 rescue dogs who occasionally enjoy the spotlight themselves. Over 20 years experience as a zoo keeper until injuries took their toll.

Funky mother of a teenage son and daughter. Regularly embarrass them through TV appearances as increasingly bizarre and risqué character roles.
