Trivia

Her twin sister is a journalist in Toronto.

In 1995, Jill Hennessy, who was playing Claire Kincaid on Law & Order, made a couple of crossover appearances as Kincaid on Homicide: Life on the Street. During the filming of one of these crossovers, the production schedules of both shows overlapped. As a result, her twin sister Jacqueline was recruited to play Kincaid in some courtroom scenes filmed for the Law & Order episode "Corpus Delicti."
