Jackey Neyman Jones

Jackey Neyman Jones is an actress and painter known mostly for playing Debbie in “Manos The Hands of Fate”.

Jackey’s living as an artist began with the creation of custom hand painted silk clothing in 1985 and in 1990 transitioned into a twenty five year career as a master faux finisher for high end clients in Northern California and Western Oregon. Her art today covers a broad spectrum of medium and materials from fabric to reclaiming bygone relics to gourd art to canvas, and any other idea that sparks an interest.

Jackey’s claim to fame is her distinct honor of being Debbie, the child star of Manos: The Hands of Fate, often referred to as “The Worst Movie Ever Made”. Her father played the evil polygamist Master and he, as an artist created much of the “look” of Manos. Even her mom and dog were fully invested in the making of this iconic film.

She describes herself as one of the very few surviving cast or crew members and the only one willing to talk about the movie, while she engages whole heartedly with fans at various venues she has released her book with co-author Laura Mazzuca Toops and with publisher Bear Manor Media to bring the behind the scenes Manos story to print in her book “Growing Up With Manos The Hands of Fate”.
