Jonas Nay - Deutschland 83

Well as I'm sure most in the UK are aware Deutschland 83 is currently being shown on Channel 4 in a primetime slot, so virtually impossible to miss the main character as the trailer and the series is being shown and talked about a lot, so lets go into a bit of details about him.

Jonas Nay attended Johanneum zu Lübeck, a Gymnasium with a music specialism, with other members of the band he also played in. Because of his interest in theater, Nay replied to a newspaper ad looking for an actor casting in 2004.

He landed a starring role in the German children's and youth series Vier gegen Z on North-German TV station NDR, with the Hollywood actor Udo Kier, who played a villain. In the first two seasons of the television series, Nay acted under the pseudonym Jonas Friedebom, and he played the character Otti Sörensen. In the following years, he played minor roles in several television productions on German television stations ARD and ZDF.

After graduation, he played the lead role in the TV series Home Video, a drama about a young boy who is bullied by his classmates. The production was honored at the 2011 German Television Awards as the best TV movie. Nay was awarded the prize at the German Television Awards, and was given the 2012 Grimme-Preis Award. This work was followed by other leading roles in television films. In 2012, Nay participated in the last scene of the Hamburg investigator "Cenk Batu", Crime Scene: The Ballad of Cenk and Valerie, about a distraught serial killer who is killed by his mother in effect. For his role as the son of a schizophrenic in the 2013 movie Hirngespinster, he was awarded the Bavarian Film Award in 2013 as "Best Newcomer." Jonas Nay opted for Zivildienst, rather than military service, working with the handicapped; he went on to look at film scoring.

He founded the band Concerted with other students in Johanneum, in which he sang, played guitar and piano, and wrote the lyrics. The band worked on music for the Stephan Rick film The Good Neighbour in January 2013. The result was the forming of the new band Northern Lights.

Several days after meeting with this manager he was introduced to Los Angeles managers (Hines and Hunt entertainment) scouting local talent in the area.
