Jonathan graduated from York University's theatre program in 1989 with a BFA (Hons.) and immediately began working in film and television. After minor roles in episodic television like Twilight Zone, Road To Avonlea and The Hitchhiker, he scored his first lead role in the CBC's blockbuster mini-series, Conspiracy of Silence. A huge hit in Canada, seen by over 2 million viewers, Conspiracy became an international hit when it was sold to the BBC in England and NBC in the U.S. Jonathan has since gone on to perform in over 60 film and television productions, including Jason X with Peter Mensah, Cruel Intentions II with Amy Adams, The Counterfeit Contessa with Tea Leoni, The Color of Justice with F.Murray Abraham, and Resurrection with Christopher Lambert. Most recently Jonathan has worked with Dustin Hoffman and Natalie Portman in Mr. Magorium's Wonder Imporium, and with Daniel Craig in Jim Sheridan's Dream House. Jonathan's reputation as one of the busiest actors in film and television in Canada has been augmented by an extensive voice-over career as well. In a span of 25 years Jonathan has voiced well over 1500 radio and television commercials and created characters for several cartoons, including Link in The Legend of Zelda and Troy in Beverly Hill Teens. Jonathan and his wife Victoria have 3 children.
