Jonas Chernick

Jonas has been acting since the age of seven when he started taking classes at the Manitoba Theatre for Young People (formerly Actor's Showcase). He graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Arts in theatre and film studies in 1995 and was a founding member of The Conspiracy Network, a theatre troupe which made its debut at the 1996 Winnipeg Fringe Festival with In Vitro Stimulation or The Great Canadian Way. Other theatre credits include Cote Saint Joe (Winnipeg Jewish Theatre/Persephone Theatre, Saskatoon) and Incompletance (Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, Toronto).

Jonas's film credits include an Ontario Media Development Corporation-funded short film You Might Be The Youngest, Miramax's Paid in Full, Regent Entertainment's Nostradamus and A Woman is a Helluva Thing, UPN's Life in a Day and Roswell: The Aliens Attack, Sean Garrity's short film How Much for a Half Kilo and an appearance in Guy Maddin's cult classic Careful. He has been featured on the YTV television series The Adventures of Shirley Holmes and Showtime's Queer as Folk. Jonas is currently working on the feature film A Wilderness Station, directed by Anne Wheeler.

Jonas has been an integral part of INERTIA since the script was written. He first met writer/director Sean Garrity during the filming of How Much for a Half Kilo and the two have worked together ever since. When Jonas heard Sean was interested in making a film based on actors' improvisations, he was immediately drawn to the project.

Jonas recently moved from Winnipeg to Toronto, which he now calls home.
