Where You’ve Seen Jayme From Umbrella Academy

The actor who plays Jayme Hargreeves on the Netflix series The Umbrella Academy is recognizable not just for her other movie and TV roles but also for some aspects of her personal life. The series depicts the titular team of superheroes, who were all adopted as children by Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore). Jayme Hargreeves is a new character introduced in The Umbrella Academy season 3 as a member of a different incarnation of the Hargreeves family of superheroes from a different timeline.


Based on the Dark Horse comics of the same name, The Umbrella Academy made its debut on Netflix in February 2019. As the series has progressed, time-jumping antics have increased the scope of the show, and with this expansion have come more characters added to the story. New heroes, villains, and allies to the members of the Umbrella Academy are introduced across various instances in time, and season 3 saw the debut of a different timeline of superheroes called “The Sparrow Academy.” One of these new heroes, Jayme Hargreeves, is played by an actor whom viewers will recognize from her other media appearances.

Cazzie David Plays Jayme Hargreeves From Umbrella Academy

Cazzie David plays Jayme Hargreeves in The Umbrella Academy season 3. During this season, The Umbrella Academy realizes that their actions in the past — and the events that took place in season 2 — have changed the timeline of their present. When they return to their own time, they are shocked to see that instead of choosing them to be a part of the Umbrella Academy, Reginald Hargreeves has instead picked seven other children to be a part of his team. Dubbed “The Sparrow Academy,” this alternate superhero team includes the venom-spitting Jayme Hargreeves, whose power causes her victims to hallucinate.

David plays Jayme as a sarcastic woman with a sharp wit to match the stinging venom she spits. It’s a goofy power, with two tiny black streams of venom that shoot out to mildly bother an opponent before the hallucinations set in. David’s way of smirking and underselling her powers is a good way to make them seem less absurd. Jayme is odd and unusual as well, and her comments on the ridiculousness of the situation and frustration with the eclectic crew of the Umbrella Academy are consistently funny, never to the point of eye-rolls from the audience, thanks to David’s delivery and commitment to the role.

Where You’ve Seen Cazzie David Before

Cazzie David only appeared in a handful of roles before her performance as Jayme Hargreeves in The Umbrella Academy. In her first on-screen role, Cazzie David played herself in a Hannah Montana episode alongside her famous father, Larry David, and sister Romy. Cazzie David’s other credits include an unnamed role in an episode of CollegeHumor Originals, and she starred in, directed, and wrote the web series Eighty-Sixed.

Cazzie David is perhaps more recognizable by the company she keeps. She dated Pete Davidson (via Buzzfeed), putting her in the tabloids before Ariana Grande became known for dating the comedian. More notably, Cazzie David is the daughter of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm creator Larry David. Fans may have seen the picture of her father posing behind a civil war cannon with full “dad energy” as Cazzie David looks at the camera unimpressed and unamused. She clearly has her father’s knack for comedy, as shown in her role as Jayme Hargreeves in The Umbrella Academy, and there should be more roles to come for the actor given her talent.
