She actually registered as an actress when she was seven, appearing in a few local commercials in the beginning and also signed on for independent films. Eventually, her younger brother followed suit, as he also became interested in an acting career.

A holiday special was also filmed and released for early 2020. The show has received mixed reviews, though it remains to be seen if it will continue in the long run.
Thanks to her popularity in the Netflix series, more people got to know Jackson and started following her on different platforms, especially on social media. Not all of the attention was positive, however, as she received a lot of criticism, especially for her character’s hair – she wore something of a wig, and as the criticism grew, she felt the need to address the issue. She also said she was very uncomfortable wearing the wig for the premiere, but it had to be done because her hair was badly damaged from the preparation before they started filming.
However, the hair would later be used for storyline purposes, making it all good.

They were often bullied by the police, who didn’t seem to believe her father’s social status.
Talia is single and she has not been involved in romantic relationships known to the public. She’s still young at 19 years old and focused on developing her career, so it’s unlikely we’ll hear from a boyfriend until sometime in the future. In her free time, she enjoys working with various charitable organizations. She is an advocate for animal rescue, be it marine animals, farm animals, or pets such as dogs. She has also worked with the Global Lyme Alliance to raise awareness of Lyme disease and raise funds for its treatment.
