Life and career
2010–2018: Career beginnings
In 2010, Jackson and her brothers gave an interview for Oprah Winfrey alongside their grandmother Katherine and their cousins about life after her father’s death. She and her brother Prince also accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2010 Grammy Awards on their father’s behalf. She and her brother Prince enrolled at the Buckley School, an exclusive private school in Sherman Oaks, California. There, she participated in flag football, softball and cheerleading.
In 2011, Jackson signed on to star in the children’s fantasy film, Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys, a story adapted from a book written by Dennis Christen. Ultimately, the film was not produced.
Jackson, her two siblings and her grandmother Katherine made plans to put together a documentary film entitled Remembering Michael in remembrance of her deceased father. It had been hoped that costs associated with the making of the project were to be funded via contributing fans through the crowdfunding site FundAnything. However, due to the uproar from the fans and media sparked by this method, Katherine decided to shut down the campaign. In a sneak peek of the documentary, Paris remarked that her father had promised to teach her his famous dance move, the Moonwalk, but never had the chance. Since the shut down of the online campaign, no further updates have been reported concerning this project.
In January 2017, Jackson appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone.
In March 2017, Jackson signed a modeling contract with IMG Models. Also in March, Jackson made her acting debut with a guest starring role on FOX’s Star.
Jackson made her feature film debut in Gringo in 2018.
She and musician/singer Gabriel Glenn formed a musical duo called The Soundflowers and performed their first gig at Canyon Sessions on June 23, 2018, with original songs “Daisy” and “In the Blue”. Jackson sings and plays the ukulele while Glenn also sings and plays acoustic guitar.
On June 24, 2019, the eve of the 10th anniversary of her father’s death, it was confirmed that Jackson will make an appearance in the third season of the VH1 slasher television series Scream.
