In this increasingly popular market, Jonathan has proven himself as an authentic go-to for producers, directors and writers, specifically when portraying the extremely complex and compelling character of Jesus Christ. Previously, he donned the sandals of the character of Christ in several other films (including “The Two Thieves,” a multiple award-winner); for an International, touring multimedia project about the life of St. Faustina and for live performances. In addition to working on “The Chosen,” Jonathan is voicing several video games. When not acting, he is busy making music and playing with various bands. He recently wrote a single that was released in Europe for an original album he co-produced with Donna McCaul.
