AUS­TRALIAN model turned ac­tor Mal­lory Jansen is a star on the rise in Hol­ly­wood.

The 26- year- old ( pic­tured) had barely touched down in Los An­ge­les with hus­band Si­mon Phan last year be­fore she landed her first TV gig in Baby Daddy, and has been work­ing solidly since.

“I ex­pected to come over here and slog it out for a bit longer, but I’ve been quite blessed,” she said.

“I can’t be­lieve a year ago I was study­ing act­ing, so it’s been re­ally great to have a new home and call LA home; it seems sur­real re­ally.”

Her latest role is play­ing the con­ceited Queen Madalena in hit US mu­si­cal com­edy se­ries Gala­vant.

“It’s great dress­ing up, and be­ing able to be a queen ev­ery day is pretty fun,” she said.
