Career

Jacobson was born on 2 August 1949 in Copenhagen, Denmark. She moved to the United Kingdom in the early 1970s, studying at the London Film School c. 1971, and developing a curious Copenhagen/Cockney accent along the way. Represented by Barrie Stacey Promotions during her British acting career, she appeared in John Jesnor Lindsay's film The Hot Girls (1974), a fake exposé of the modelling world. More mainstream work included guest appearances in The Sweeney and The Goodies, and roles in Carry On Behind (1975) and several other British sex comedies. Jacobson was also active on stage appearing in a touring production of Hair in 1974, and in the stage farce Pyjama Tops (c. 1973) where co-stars included Fiona Richmond, Jess Conrad and Lucienne Camille.

Aside from her acting career Jacobson was also the managing director of a clothing firm, and worked in the music industry managing a band called Ix. After a role in 1979's The World Is Full of Married Men, she left acting to pursue work in the music industry full-time, and then worked for Harvey Goldsmith.
