A native of Michigan, Jonny Lewis started acting at age 45 in New York City after being invited to a theatre audition “just to watch.” Though he had never acted before, nor had any desire to be an actor, when none of the other actors quite fit the bill, Jonny was asked to try out, and got the part. After doing three plays Off-Off-Broadway in lead roles, he moved to Los Angeles, where he did 150 student and indie films in 8 years. (About a fourth of which are listed on IMDb.)
Won “Best Actor in a Short Film” for the first film he ever did. It was Cleve Lamison’s “The Story”, shot in 2002, and the award was presented in 2004.

He wrote and directed a couple of short films in Spanish while living in Tijuana. He dabbles in Japanese, both because he has family in Japan and also the written characters fascinate him.
