Jack Loy: Bodyguard Bound for the States

Award-winning British actor Jack Loy is used to attracting attention.

The 6’4” performer, known to worldwide audiences for his acclaimed work in ‘Jenifa’s Diary’ and the recent British crime flick ‘King of Crime’, nevertheless embodies the humility of someone shorter in both resume and height.

Such is the integrity of this artist though, that, while a towering presence on both screen and in real life, Jack is more concerned with leaving anyone with whom his work comes in contact feeling better for the experience. 

“I think one of the best things about acting is that you get the opportunity to entertain people.”

The trained thespian, of part Indian heritage, goes a little further.

This might be by bringing a smile to their faces and an opportunity to escape ‘real life’ or it could be something that inspires new ideas and thoughts.”

It’s clear that this attitude at leaving a positive impression on people has helped Loy in more ways than one. Most obviously, Loy recently won the Best UK Actor Award from the London International Motion Picture Awards for his leading role as Nick in the film Beautiful In The Morning.

The most obvious of these is that Loy is consistently cast in a number of impressive productions all over the world, with a number of filmmakers jumping at the chance to work with him. 

In the past few years, the stages and screens of the UK, India and Russia have been blessed with Loy’s presence. Next stop? The US. 

“I’m really excited to be entering the U.S market. It’s surely the biggest acting market in the world.”

Loy is attached to a number of US projects, including one involving him filming across Nevada and Los Angeles. The role will call for him to use his well-known charm with a dose of darkness.
