Jolie Jenkins played FBI agent "Leyla Harrison" on The X-Files from 2001-2002. Born March 7, 1974, Jenkins dreamed of becoming an actress from an early age, and The X-Files would give her the opportunity of a lifetime. 

After her two-episode stint on The X-Files, Jolie Jenkins would go on to star in a number of successful series.
