Jocelyn became interested in acting thanks to her father, who arranged for her to appear in some of the movies he has directed, so while attending high school, Jocelyn was practicing acting, and appearing in most school plays.
Ron and Cheryl gave their children middle names based on where they were conceived – Jocelyn and her twin sister in New York City at the Carlyle Hotel while their eldest sister was conceived in Dallas, however, their brother Reed was supposed to receive ‘Volvo’ as his middle name but as Ron did not see this as something convenient, he decided he would name him after a street in London called Cross.
