1. I know you, but some people may not.
So could you please introduce yourself to the world?
"I’m Jack, I’m a 19 year old actor with a love for all things art related."
2. What was your first job in the entertainment industry?
Also, what did you do before that?
"My first job in the industry is quite a hard one to answer as I’ve sort of been doing it since I was a baby, so I’m not entirely sure what the first one was, through modelling and small singing gigs right up until present day I haven’t really stopped, which is such a blessing."
3. Did you study acting before getting into the industry?
"I was at a performing arts school from age 10 to 14, where we studied theatre and screen acting, I then left to go to a college that focused heavily on working behind the camera, doing subjects like editing, cinematography, film studies etc. I then realised how much I missed diving into characters and the aspects of performing, so I left at 16 and went to a drama school in north London where I really found my feet and realised I wanted to dedicate my life to what I love doing the most. I think it’s so important to continue education with something like acting, if you think you know it all, you definitely don’t."
4. If you could work with anyone you'd want,
who would that person be and why?
"From a young age I had a fascination with Tarantinos style of directing, how fearless and unpredictable it was. It would be a dream come true to work alongside him one day. But sadly he only has a few more films left in him. Fingers crossed they’re looking to cast a young English boy."
5. What does a normal day in your life looks like?
"A normal day for me would have to be spending time at the family house with my girlfriend and all her dogs. Lots of tea, and come 9 o’clock we switch on the karaoke machine, pull out the drinks, and scream out some Billy Joel."
6. If you could, what would be the one advice
you would want to give to your younger self?
"The advice I would give to my younger self is that if you’re doing what you love, and you’re surrounded by good people, you’re already in the happiest place you can be. Don’t strive for success or set unrealistic goals, strive to maintain a steady happiness. Stop thinking about the future all the time."
7. What is one of the best advice that you've got?
Who was the person that gave it to you?
"Surround yourself with great people. Learn from other people's successes and failures.
Go with your gut in life and you won’t regret a thing - the dad"
8. What is your biggest accomplishment so far?
"Late last year I was given the opportunity to play my first leading role in a feature film, alongside some of my favourite actors.
The whole shoot was an absolute joy and I left the project feeling so fulfilled."
9. If you could book any role in the next years to come,
what would that dream role be?
"Dream roles. I’ve always wanted to play the characters with huge internal struggles, something to really sink my teeth into, the more work the better."
10. Is there anything you can disclose about any new project?
"There will be a few films of mine coming out towards the end of this year and the beginning of next year. No dates confirmed yet. But all of the films are charming, and when I get the go ahead they will be plastered all over my Instagram, I’m sure."
11. What is the best part about life on set?
"On set I have mastered the art of being able to fall asleep absolutely anywhere. Plastic chair? No problem. Stone floor? I’m out like a light. There’s so much waiting around during filming, it’s important to keep energy high and these cat naps are the source of my powers."
12. n the end, is there anything you'd like to say to the people who support you?
"The messages of support have been absolutely incredible, and it’s so nice to hear such lovely feedback about something you’ve been a part of. I’m lucky enough to have a great support group of family and friends whom I simply couldn’t live without. I love you all."
