Jody Rae Thompson (born 13 August 1976) is a Canadian actress working in film and television.
Thompson was born in Vancouver, British Columbia to an English father, Ray Thompson, the lead singer of the garage rock band The Wiggy Symphony, and a German mother. Thompson is married to Canadian filmmaker Bruce Marchfelder, and the couple have three children and two German Shepherd Schutzhunds.
She is most widely known for her regularly recurring character Devon Moore on the USA network’s television series The 4400, but she is also recognized as the warrior queen Azura in the 2007 television series Flash Gordon and in other recurring television roles including Blade: The Series, Terminal City, and Cold Squad. She has numerous television guest star appearances, including roles on Freedom (TV series), Andromeda, Stargate, Smallville and Supernatural.
She acted in leading and starring roles in feature films and MOW’s like Perfect Little Angels, Fear of Flying, also Mission to Mars, Shanghai Noon, 2012 and many others. She has co-starred with Eric McCormack in X-Files producer Bob Goodwin's independent film Alien Trespass and starred in 30 Days of Night: Dark Days.
She is the President of the International Filmmakers Institute – a production company dedicated to the creation of film and video artworks that endeavor to relieve social injustice and advance a message of hope, mercy and reconciliation.
She just completed producing a documentary film, Montaña de Luz. It is a heartfelt story about a Honduran orphanage that cares for children living with HIV. The film was an Official Selection at the Rhode Island International Film Festival and is a 2008 Winner of the Heartland Film Festival's Crystal Heart Award (an award which "honors filmmakers whose work explores the human journey by artistically expressing hope and respect for the positive values of life").
She has also been recognized internationally for a short experimental film that she wrote and directed. The film was funded by The Canada Council for the Arts and is an impressionistic portrayal of a young girl's recovery from childhood trauma, "a silent film that speaks through a series of post-structuralist and surrealist signifiers in conversation."
