Mini Bio (1)
A California native, Jon Maxwell is a classically trained actor whose mother once said has been performing "since [he] could open his damn mouth."
Jon Maxwell exhibited his creative and artistic abilities very early in his life. In primary school he participated regularly in plays and sang every morning in the school choir. In the 3rd grade he studied Greek mythology and Latin which gave him a tremendous advantage in understanding language. His first paid acting role came at the age of 11 when he joined an ensemble cast at his local community theater. In his teenage years, Jon attended an arts "magnet school" which allowed him to specialize in subjects such as theater, dance, movement, drawing, sculpture, and film. In his senior year, he played Reverend Samuel Parris in a production of Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" -- a role which garnered him the Best Actor award for that year. Jon also holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and worked as a software engineer for several years.
Jon was recently featured as a hostage in the Oscar-nominated feature film American Sniper. Last year he landed his first co-star role on Lifetime's Killer Kids and has appeared in a multitude of television commercials airing both nationally and regionally. In addition to his background as a dramatic actor, Jon has also studied sketch writing and improv with Upright Citizen's Brigade.
