"An incredibly versatile actor to work with who develops a role perfectly to the vision of his director"

"I love working with Jon, he is a great example of a diligent and intelligent actor. I've never seen Jon settle for average, he does not need a reason to push beyond what's expected"
Writer/Director - Floris Rameakers (Sleeping Dogs)
"Jon is a delight to work with. Very professional and one of the most hard working actors around. I would cast him again without hesitation. A real gem and a wonderful acting talent."
Born in Hull in '66 Jon showed a natural flare for performing from an early age. Cast as Romeo in a school play at 11 he was hooked but, as a working class northern lad the 'Trade' came 1st so Jon began an apprenticeship with British Aerospace at 16. He found an outlet for his creativity with the outstanding HULL TRUCK YOUTH THEATRE. Then in '89 he won a full grant and a place at a leading drama school and at 22, he `quit the day job`. Graduating in 92' he spent many years refining his skills in theatre playing exciting leads such as D'Artagnan (The Three Musketeers) and Alex (A Clockwork Orange). Jon turned his eye to film work in 2009 and with a new edgier (and hairier) 'look' landing the iconic role of DIGGS in DEAD END, and then, his TRAIN STOPPING DEATHEATER in HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS. Jon is now also Model and is loving his new adventures on the convention circuit. X Team JC
Testimonials from a few Writers/Directors I've worked with recently.
"Working with Jon was a really pleasurable experience. His dedication to his character and the project as a whole went above and beyond. Jon's performance and understanding of his role within the environment of the film was everything I could have asked for"
Writer/Director - Melanie Light (The Herd)
"The first thing that strikes you about Jon is his appearance. He's tall, handsome and has an appealing intensity that makes you want to find out more. Then you get to know him a bit and you realise that despite some of the thrillingly dark roles he's played, he's one of the sweetest guys you'll ever meet. But none of this distracts you from the fact that he's the most dedicated, professional, courteous and distinctive of actors. You'll want to work with him again and again. I do."
