Jonathan Pinto-Rocha trained for two years as an actor at Éponyme, the Paris Theatre School, is a self-taught singer and musician, and since 2011 has played the Genie of the Lamp in Jean-Philippe Daguerre’s Aladdin. He performs in some of the French capital’s most prestigious theatres (e.g. Théâtres des Variétés, Palais Royal, Gymnase) and throughout France. His natural acting ability and his passion for singing meant that he landed the role of Papageno in The Magic Flute, musically adapted for the theatre by Petr Ruzicka and directed by Jean-Philippe Daguerre at the Théâtre des Variétés in 2014. In 2011, he appeared in the short film Casse Gueule, produced by Clément Gonzalez, that won the special jury prize for the cast, the audience prize and the prize for best film at the festivals 48 Heures Film Project Paris and P’tit Clap Levallois. It was here that he met Simon Astier who offered him a role in season three of the series Hero Corp in 2013. In 2012, he participated once more in the 48 Heures Film Project festival, in Clément Gonzalez’s short film, Du Sable Dans Les Pompes, which won the audience prize and the prize for best cast. Since December 2015 he has played the dance master and Covielle in Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme, directed by Jean-Philippe Daguerre at Théâtre Michel, Paris.
