Seasoned in theatre, film, and TV, I'm an extensively-trained and versatile actor, coach, published and award-winning playwright, screenwriter, producer, and animal lover who'll help make your read pop and offer "soft" coaching. My WeAudition clients are getting pins, callbacks, and bookings on shows such as Law & Order, And Just Like That, and in independent films. I've recently appeared in the films "The Big Pitch" and "The Big Gun," and onstage in "The Shadow Box."
I love helping actors work their talents so their craft and unique personality shine through. In the last four years I've shot over 25 diverse co-star roles with Reel Arc, NY, and have written over 125 tailor-made scripts for their actors. www.jonspano.com. www.imdb.me/jonspano
