Jenny Bordain (born June 10, 1985) was an American child actress in the 1990's. In the 1997 Florida cast of Les Miserables, Jenny portrayed the character of Young Éponine. She was twelve years old at the time. This production lasted from the beginning of June to the last day of December of that year. She is also vaguely known for her roles in The Lion King (which she first played in as a child and returned to in her early twenties) and her last stage sighting in Chicago.
Her final sighting was in the musical Chicago, in 2007. After this, Jenny would leave acting and enter orchestra instead, as she knew to play the flute and the clarinet. Jenny now works playing music for Broadway musicals.
