On graduating from Doreen Bird College of Performance, in 2014 Jonny had very quick significant success, appearing in Leon Lopez’s film Soft Lad in 2015. He was shortlisted for a BIFA newcomer award for his performance, playing the role of David.
Jonny is probably though best known for playing Paul Coker in EastEnders. Jonny joined the cast in 2015 as the grandson of Les and Pam Coker, who fell in love with Ben Mitchell. Paul was later killed off in an homophobic attack, leaving the BBC soap in 2016.
Verge of Strife
In 2016, after leaving Eastenders, Jonny took an exciting role in the “Verge of Strife” at the Assembly Rooms in George Square. He played the part of the English poet Rupert Brooke, who became notorious in the early 1900s for his idealistic war sonnets and promiscuous behaviour.
Jonny has recently finished a 6 month run in the West End starring as Scott Hastings in the original London cast of Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom. Working for a second time with multi award winning Director/Choreographer Drew McConie (First time in the origonal London cast of In The Heights).
