Career

Beginning of Jane March Career

March grew up in her native London in a middle-class family who had been attracted to the fascinating world of fashion and glamour since she was a child.

At the early age of 14 in her high school, Jane signed up for a local fashion contest, “Become a Model,” and she ended up winning that beauty contest. 

After success at the beauty contest in high school, Jane signed a contract with a fashion company “Storm Model Management.”

Since then, she started using her stage name as “March.” She appeared in numerous print commercials and slowly build a platform for herself at an early age.

The very next day, she had a cover shoot for “Just Seventeen” magazine, where she grabbed the attention of the famous Frech director Jean-Jacques Annaud’s wife. 

Soon she was chosen as a lead actress for the film “The Lover” in 1992, based on a semi-autobiographical novel by the French novelist Marguerite Duras.

As Jane was only 17 years old while shooting the film, and the movie was released when she was 18, viewers thought that the movie scenes were real, but in fact, the movie producer had used five different doubles to casting in the sex scenes in the film which is revealed years after the movie was released.

The public used to call her the nickname Sinner from Pinner, which led her to mental trauma, and she was away from the public domain after that incident.

To recover from that incident, she was away for a weekend in Seychelles, where she found herself back and came back to work.

As Annaud faked the truth of such scenes in her first movie, she faced a rupture in her relationship for years and was even annoyed with her response to Jean-Jacques.

After her return to public life, she co-starred with Bruce Wiliams in The erotic thriller movie “Color of Night” in the year 1994. 

Though the movie didn’t enjoy much success at the box office, it did quite well in the home video market and was listed in one of the top 20 most-rented movies in the United States in 1995.

On June 14, 1993, the actor and co-producer married in an 11-minute-long ceremony. Bruce Willis and Demi Moore were served as the best man and the maid of honor at their wedding, respectively. 

During their wedding, Jane was 20 years old while her then-husband Zozzora was 35. After the marriage, Zozzora insisted she works in the film where he appeared as a co-producer.

But Zozzora’s working only as a B-production producer drastically hindered Jane’s career, and March confessed that she never got a chance to live up to her potential with her first husband.

The couple always had a very argumentative relationship and separated in 1999; however, their marriage finally ended when the two divorced in 2001.
