    About me

    ABOUT THEO:

    Theo Jacques is a self-represented performer from the Czech Republic who has become familiar with travel when it comes to acting and music. There is a lot of cultural activity in Czechia, but opportunities outside the country are far more plentiful. The ability to move around has always been part of life.

    Theo's early childhood was complicated and at times difficult, with a stint in a children’s home that came with all of the emotional stress that accompanies such an early childhood experience. This did not however deter him from a profound love of the arts that at first served as an escape. He started by joining his school choir, where his love for singing grew dramatically, leading to concerts and a healthy devotion to music.

    While at grammar school, he was drawn to acting by joining the school‘s drama club and by having roles in student films. This led to his decision to seek a career in the film industry. Initially, he worked as a background actor for many projects in Prague and as a production assistant for companies such as Marvel Studios while learning the mechanics of being on a professional movie set.

    In 2019, Theo jumped into the acting profession full-on, studying with the British Actors Studio and ActingHorse in Prague among others with the help of many organisations and friends that have been sponsoring and helping him throughout the years. COVID hit the world and he continued still by joining various casting databases and platforms such as The Actors Gym, Backstage.com, Mandy.com and more. He is continually attending workshops and classes. Prague Film School offered him a spot at the summer acting course in 2020 where he worked on on-camera technique, Shakespeare, improvisation, dance, and singing. Prague Youth Theatre has also been part of his experience as he successfully completed a LAMDA accredited exam called "Gold Medal Grade 8, Level 3" at "Distinction mark". He also studied the Meisner technique at Prague Playhouse Acting Studio.

    Theo is currently seeking out acting studies in the UK with his lifelong goal to constantly improve his work.

    IN THEO'S OWN WORDS:

    "What attracts me to acting is that I can challenge myself, express my creativity, and discover parts of myself and the world through the role I am given. I love the feeling and complete immersion of becoming someone else and at the same time keeping something of myself, thus developing a specific character. I also love the audience watching the movies relating to the character and finding common ground; realizing that they are not alone in the world and can dive into the world we create - and for a moment - live it with us.“
