Joined the British Stunt Register in 1982
Jason is a highly experienced UK Action Director/ UK Stunt Co-ordinator.
After attending Morley Drama College, Jason worked as an actor in film & TV - appearing in A Bridge Too Far and as Roger Peacock in International Velvet. Later, Jason decided to join the Stunt Register in 1982 having obtained 6 qualifications to gold medal standard.
Jason attended The National Film School, training as a documentary director where he made a 20 minute short about a vet practice.
Jason has written and directed many action sequences working closely with actors such as Cillian Murphy, Kim Basinger, and Richard Harris.
As a skilled and competent Horse Master, Jason specialises in sourcing horses worldwide and coaching principal actors to ride.
Jason is one of the few multi skilled Action Directors / Stunt Co-ordinators. Whether it’s having the vision to orchestrate a large set piece, arrange a realistic fight sequence or work as a Horse Master – you're definitely in safe and capable hands!
While working as a Stunt Co-ordinator, Jason designed a range of Special Action Manikins to replace the old stunt dummies – which he felt needed to be more realistic and reactional. While working on the first series of Peaky Blinders as both the Stunt Co-ordinator and Horse Master, Jason introduced the manikins which were used to great effect with Cillian Murphy and to replace Arthur for the hanging scene.
Jason is passionate and committed to safety in the Film & TV industry.
"I specialise and enjoy working closely with actors - enabling them to perform their own physical action safely"
