Biography

Jonathan Gregory Brandis was born to Mary and Greg Brandis, in Danbury, Connecticut, on 13 April 1976. He was discovered by a next-door ad agent and began acting on TV adverts at an early age. He starred in films ranging from accompanying Chuck Norris in Sidekicks to playing a girl in The Ladybugs with Rodney Dangerfield. Jonathan managed to find a niche in the US teen magazine market and became the teen actor whose picture was printed in the greatest number of teeny-bop magazine covers. He became a national star for the US teenagers in the 1990s and even had his personal advice column in the BOP magazine.

This popularity made him a part of the Steven Spielberg produced TV science-fiction series SeaQuest DSV and although it came nowhere people expected it would come to, the series survived for 3 seasons, and from the beginning of the second season, Jonathan Brandis was the leading force of this science-fiction series. It came to an end when everything seemed to be improving with a new cast and a new combination of scripts and even a new name for the show, SeaQuest 2032. An episode in the second series is written by Jonathan Brandis and he was about to direct an episode when the show was axed. Ever since SeaQuest, he is either in low-budget and mostly made-for-TV film or has small parts in big productions as Ride With the Devil. ~ Cem Karadeli

Jonathan Gregory Brandis was born on April 13, 1976 in the small town of Danbury, Connecticut to parents Greg and Mary Brandis. Jon, an only child, was named for a "cool" guy his father knew while he worked as a bus driver.

   Jon's career in acting and show business would begin at the age of two, when his mother Mary took him to New York City where he got his first job on a Buster Brown Shoes poster. From this moment on, Jon worked as a model in print ads as well as commercials. This work paid off and Jon received a part on the soap One Life to Live at the age of six. Jon and his family packed up and moved to Los Angeles when he was 9 years-old so that he could further pursue his acting career in film and television. Shortly after the move, he won a part on the series Poor Little Rich Girl, which starred Charlie's Angels beauty Farrah Fawcett.
