Since then, George has directed a number of short films, working with top industry talent and gaining support from Warner Brothers, Technicolor, Framestore and BAFTA winning creatives. He has just wrapped his debut feature film BLACK DOG, which he co-wrote at 18, with AVATAR’s Jamie Flatters. BLACK DOG is executive produced by David Parfitt (SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE), with international sales handled by Independent. BLACK DOG also stars Flatters, Nicholas Pinnock, Paul Kaye, Ruby Stokes, Hattie Morahan and Amrita Acharia.
During the pandemic, George had his debut acting co-lead, shirtless and terrified, opposite Jude Law in HBO/Marc Munden’s THE THIRD DAY: AUTUMN. He has since played a lead (FRANCIS II) in Justin Haythe/Lionsgate’s upcoming series THE SERPENT QUEEN opposite Samantha Morton, and a lead in Sky/Nick Love’s upcoming gangster show A TOWN CALLED MALICE, with Martha Plimpton, Dougray Scott, and Jason Flemyng.
“Londoner George Jaques is an impressive quadruple threat as writer, director, producer and actor.” – Ben Dalton, Screen International
