OB Jonno Davies (01-10) will soon be back on our screens, in Amazon Prime’s new 10 part blockbuster, Hunters, released on 21st February.
Starring film legend, Al Pacino, in his first TV role since his very first on-screen job as an actor, Hunters tells the story of a diverse band of Nazi hunters living in 1977 New York City, who discover hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials are conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. The eclectic team, led by Pacino, set out on a bloody quest to bring them to justice.
Jonno, who plays recurring character Tobias in the series, spent the whole of last summer filming Hunters in New York. The Big Apple has become his second home since starring in the off-Broadway production of A Clockwork Orange in 2017. His theatre performance impressed the New York Times’ Michael Paulson enough to name Jonno as the only actor in a special feature titled “Tomorrow’s Marquee Names, Now In The Making” about up and coming talent in the US.
Jonno has made appearances in several TV shows and films, including Kingsman: The Secret Service, Casualty, Hollyoaks, Silent Witness and King of Crime. On stage, he played the title role in Dracula at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014 and made his West End stage debut in the Olivier award-nominated comedy Shakespeare In Love.
A former Head Boy of the Prep School, Jonno is thrilled about attending the red carpet premiere of Hunters in Los Angeles on 19th February.
“Getting to share the screen with acting royalty, like Al Pacino, is a dream come true, and to walk the red carpet with them in LA really is the icing on the cake!”.
It was great to hear from Jonno telling us that fellow OB, Max Dyck (08-10), had helped him master the German accent for the role. Another example of OB networking success!
