Actor / Performer
Theo Jacques is a self-represented performer from the Czech Republic.

Angiolillo’s “Working with Actors” at FAMU, Brian Caspe’s Prague Playhouse Acting Studio, Prague Film School’s workshop, ActingHorse’s and Actors Studio’s On-Camera acting courses, and the Prague Youth Theatre, where he got his LAMDA accredited gold medal.
Besides working with and learning from different professionals, Theo’s also an ambitious self-learner. From various sources, he draws inspiration and necessary information in order to prepare, and work on his roles in short films (Triumvirate, How We Remember, Okamžik, i.e.), independent films/TV prod. (Czechia (Wo)Men) and theatre plays (Fright Night - The Prague Horrortheater, Periclés - Prague Shakespeare Company).
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 choose to portray. I enjoy analyzing other people's behavior, learning new skills, and I love the feeling and complete immersion of becoming a specific and believable character.
I love the audience relating to the story and character and finding common ground; realizing that they're not alone and can dive into the world we create. Acting serves me as a form of expression of my own experience as well as an escape from it."
