Meet Jaicy Elliot!


Nov 13, 2019

Meet Jaicy Elliot! You probably know her as Dr. Taryn Helm on Grey’s Anatomy, the hit show has kept us intrigued from season one!

We had a fantastic time getting to know her on our photo shoot in the Hollywood Hills! She was lovely, fun to be around, and has a great sense of style! We got a change to know her better by asking her some of our exclusive questions.

Tell us about your most recent project?

I’m currently filming my third season of Grey’s Anatomy. We shoot for nine months so I usually use my time to travel when I’m not working.

What inspires you to do what you do?

People around me. I get inspiration from people’s stories and emotions. I also find creativity by seeing other artists’ work. I’m always curious about how people around me live their lives and I use that in everything I do. 
What is your favorite free time thing to do? (don’t put singing if you’re a singer or acting if you’re an actor etc.)

I love to cook for my family and friends, to go to the theatre and dance it out!

What would be your idea of a perfect day?

A perfect day for would start with a workout. I would also definitely want to work in the morning. I would then have lunch with my friends, drink coffee on a patio somewhere and play cards for a bit, before going in for some kind of self care (massage, hair appointment, manicure) and then finish with dinner and a show. Not too much right? I like to be busy! 
Three people—dead or alive, real or fictional—that you’d like to invite to dinner?

I would love to make dinner for Oprah, Cleopatra and Einstein. 

Dream concert ticket (any band, any decade)?

I would have loved to attend the first Woodstock. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t! 

Favorite movie?

My favorite movie is La Veritée si je Mens, a French movie that is my family’s favorite. 

Karaoke anthem?

I have never done Karaoke, I’m waiting for the right opportunity to try it. And then perhaps it would ‘Life on Mars’ by Bowie, that song is everything.

Favorite artist?

I am obsessed with Joni Mitchell, she is such an impeccable writer…her songs are so profound and beautiful and her voice is so distinct. I have so much respect for her as an artist.  Also, Egon Schiele. I studied his drawings in college and have loved his work ever since. 

Last fashion item purchased?

I just bought some really cool cowboy boots. I have wanted them for ages and just finally found them! I’m very proud. 
If you could only eat one thing from now on, what would it be?

Roasted vegetables! Always and forever! 
If you could give your younger self advice (knowing what you know now what would it be?

Don’t worry so much about trying to control everything, it will all work itself out. Also, trust yourself.
Tell us a secret/ Fun fact about yourself?

I love real estate. I spend too much time on apps looking at houses or apartments to buy or rent, without actually buying or renting anything. I have a secret passion for that stuff.
What does Popular mean to you?

Popular for me means that people want to be around you and for me that comes with self-love and confidence. If you like to hang out with you, people will too. 
Can you tell us about any other upcoming projects?

For now, I’m loving being on Grey’s. It’s been such a great experience, I’m learning so much and love growing within this family.
