Jonny Owen is an award-winning actor, writer and filmmaker. Originally starting off his professional career in music, his many talents have allowed him to enjoy success in other areas including TV and film. He left his band, The Pocket Devils, to pursue a career in acting, writing and producing; appearing in and producing a number of successful and memorable television projects, winning a few awards along the way including a Welsh Bafta.
Perhaps Jonny's most popular work to date was creating and writing the comedy ‘Svengali', which started life as a web series on Youtube. It grew quite a cult following with special guest appearances from Boy George, Carl Barat and Alan McGee. It was inevitably made into a feature film starring Owen and a number of the UK’s leading actors including Vicky McClure, Martin Freeman, Matt Berry, Maxine Peake with a stunning performance by Alan McGee playing himself.
Owen has always shown a huge passion for football and during filming and producing he maintained a career of sorts as a football writer, writing for leading broadsheets and contributing to various sports programmes. His vast knowledge on the game and its history inspired him to retell the story of Brian Clough’s unimaginable achievements in ‘I Believe in Miracles’.
