WORDS BY JONAS BLOQUET
“At the age of 14, I wanted to work in the police as a crime scientist. I think I watched to much TV and was influenced by the Miami Experts. A year later, I played in my first film as the lead and as a teenager missing 2 months of school to be treated as a young prince, let’s just say that I fell in love with it. I quickly understood that it wouldn’t be that easy to be a working actor but it was to late, I was hooked on the art of acting.
However, acting was not enough, I want to tell stories and for that I have to write ON my own.
So for 5 years, my dream was to produce the films I wrote, directed and played in. But as I grow older, I realise that it’s not what I do that makes me happy but who I do it with. I have the chance to be surrounded by many friends and dear ones who love and support me and if in 20 years, those people are still in my life, I’ll do just fine.”
