Jayne Wisener (born 19 May 1987) is an actress and singer from Northern Ireland. She is best known for playing Johanna in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. She also briefly played Lauren Harris in The Inbetweeners.


Née à Ballymoney et ayant grandi à Coleraine, Jayne a suivi les cours de Coleraine High School, école réservée aux filles. Puis elle a suivi des cours d'art dramatique à la Royal Scottish College of Music and Drama. En 2005, elle représente la région d'Antrim dans le célèbre concours Rose of Tralee. Elle a aussi joué pour le Musical Theatre 4 Youth, et apparu dans Falling.

Alors qu'elle jouait dans une version adolescente de West Side Story au Millennium Forum à Derry, elle est repérée par un découvreur de talents qui la fait auditionner pour Sweeney Todd. A seulement 19 ans, elle semblait trop âgée pour jouer Johanna (qui doit avoir 16 ans dans le film); ce à quoi elle a répondu par un envoi de photos non professionnelles sans maquillage pour prouver qu'elle paraissait beaucoup plus jeune au naturel. ("e-mailed them some pictures of [herself] without make-up. Usually looking young does no favours at all but [she was] quite pleased this time.")

Elle fait ses débuts sur les planches dans la comédie musicale anglaise Parade, au Donmar Warehouse en 2007.

En 2009, on la retrouve dans le clip Bullets, réalisé par Hello Charlie et extrait de l'album Controlling Crowds du groupe Archive.

In 1846, a barber named Benjamin Barker arrives in London, accompanied by sailor Anthony Hope ("No Place Like London"). Fifteen years earlier, he had been falsely convicted and sentenced to penal transportation from London by the corrupt Judge Turpin, who had lusted after Barker's wife Lucy ("The Barber and His Wife"). Barker adopts the alias "Sweeney Todd" and returns to his old Fleet Street shop, situated above Mrs. Nellie Lovett's meat pie shop ("The Worst Pies in London"). From her, he learns that Turpin raped Lucy, who then poisoned herself with arsenic. The couple's daughter, Johanna, is now Turpin's ward, and, like her mother before her, the object of Turpin's lust ("Poor Thing"). Todd vows revenge, and re-opens his barber shop after Mrs. Lovett returns his straight razors to him ("My Friends"). While roaming London, Anthony becomes enamored of Johanna, but is caught by Turpin and driven away by his corrupt associate, Beadle Bamford ("Green Finch and Linnet Bird", "Alms! Alms!", "Johanna").
