Jason Bentley Jones - Officer Auxeter
Jason Bentley Jones has been practicing the Stanislavsky System for many years but cannot seem to
master the first requirement: 'Being born into a wealthy family that has a lock on the textile market'.
Instead, Jason would be best described as a "Meat and Potatoes" Actor. An actor that realizes that his
job is to help make a story come to life and appear real. "Just surrender to and become someone else - without
ever doing it. Think as, move as and respond as the character. Basically, it's like any other job. You
stand where you are told to stand and say what you are told to say, much like Wall Street Brokers, Sales
persons and Corporate Lawyers ...only, when you're an Actor, nobody gets hurt (Lawyer, at podium: "There
is no such thing as a Cancer Cluster").
Jason attended Temple University and studied acting under the direction of such dynamic teachers as Edward
Norton 3rd, Michael Sandals and David Wilson LeQuan. He frequently studies archival footage.
Jason has worked on various independent films and industrial projects and looks forward to a long relationship
with LIBERTY BELL FILMS.
