Jason was born in London, England on Tuesday 24th April 1962. He went to school at the Fox Primary School, in London, Amherst Regional High School, Massachusetts, USA and Hampshire College, Massachusetts, USA (BA in Acting and Directing). Jason's first 14 years were spent growing up like any other kid living in the inner city with dreams of becoming a footballer, pop star or actor.
In 1976 Jason's father got a job teaching poetry and creative writing in New England, USA. Whilst living on the edge of the student campus, he become involved with playing Frisbee. Jason competed around the world in International Frisbee championships where he travelled a lot, got sponsored by AMF Voit and met a lot of interesting folk. However he eventually had to choose between acting and Frisbee - acting won!
Jason's first acting job back in London was playing various parts in a series of plays about art being performed in an art gallery in Chelsea. After several other roles, he landed a major role in a huge beer commercial campaign for Miller Lite after which he became instantly recognisable in the UK.
In 1992 Jason walked into an office in Noel Street, Soho, London. It housed the offices of John & Ros Hubbard, where he met Jim Goddard, the first director of a show called Sharpe's Rifles. The rest, as they say is history.
