Jonathan Roumie is a professional Actor & Voice-Over Artist who has spent several years working in virtually every area of film, tv, theater and voice, both in the mainstream media as well as the Faith-based genre.
In this increasingly popular market, Jonathan has proven himself as an authentic go-to for Producers, Directors and Writers, specifically when portraying the extremely complex and compelling character of Jesus Christ. He is currently playing Jesus in the first multi-season series about the life of Christ called "The Chosen", which is the highest crowdfunded media project of all time. Previously, he donned the sandals of the character of Christ in several other films (including "The Two Thieves", a multiple award-winner); for an International, touring multi-media project about the life of St. Faustina and for live performances.
In Fall 2016, Jonathan was honored with an ecclesiastical knighthood through the International Order of OSMTH, Switzerland and in 2017 elevated to Chaplain. He is currently active in several ministries in his home parish, resides on the Board of Directors for Catholics in Media Associates and heads up a Faith-based Entertainment ministry out of Beverly Hills, CA, serving the Greater Los Angeles area.
