Jonno Davies has been named as one of “Tomorrow’s Marquee Names, Now In The Making” by Michael Paulson in The New York Times, one of the world’s best known publications.
Paulson’s article states: “This British actor was just out of drama school, attending the Edinburgh fringe festival and eager to see the buzzy stage adaptation of “A Clockwork Orange,” even though he had never watched the film or read the book. It was sold out. “I was quite gutted,” Mr. Davies said. But he sent a video of himself to the casting director and won the lead role for a one-week production in Norway. A week in Singapore followed, then five in London; between shows, he started a company leading Shakespeare workshops in schools. Now Mr. Davies, 25, who grew up in Milton Keynes, England, is making his New York stage debut. “I don’t play him as a villain, but as a very troubled young man who is trying to cure the world,” he said of the sociopathic Alex, played on film by Malcolm McDowell. “It’s up to the audience to make judgements, not me.”
