Gillian grew up in Mt. Lebanon, a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She quickly made a name for herself at the Pittsburgh Public Theater, appearing as a perennial contender in the Public’s Shakespeare Monologue Contest. The honor led to her bagging the role of Titania in the production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. She graduated from Mt. Lebanon High School in 2000, after which she moved to New York to study acting at Juilliard. Jacobs made her national acting debut with a recurring role as Adele Congreve on the series The Book of Daniel.
