My name is Jacob Cherry, and I am an actor and writer from Sacramento, California, currently living in Los Angeles and studying at UCLA as a Theater (Acting) major.
As a passionate Shakespearean actor, I love breathing contemporary life into classical text.
In more contemporary works, whether I am making audiences laugh or think, I intend to always tell stories in my acting and writing that preach inclusion, diversity, and acceptance of those around us.
What I love about creating art is the chance to collaborate with people who share a sense of purpose. I consider myself a very positive spirit, and I enjoy working with those who possess a sense of enthusiasm for the noble work they do.
Performance has the potential to irrevocably change someone, whether it be something as small and beautiful as brightening their mood on a burdensome day, to forever altering the way they see themselves or the world around them.
I believe the main strength of my performances and writings are in feeling complete empathy for all my characters, and making them as human as possible. I hope that audiences are able to view the world from new perspectives and grow in acceptance of each other, something we desperately need.
