Meet Jake Casper
Christopher “Jake” Casper is an American actor based in New York and Atlanta. Growing up right outside of Boston Jake always had an imaginative mind and a love for putting on accents and impressions, but it wasn’t until he was cast in his very first student short film that he discovered a love for visual storytelling and comedic acting.
While studying theater and history at Fitchburg State University, Jake was cast in over 20 student and independent films working alongside talented actors and filmmakers from NYU, Emerson, Tufts University, and Columbia College. Some of his notable performances include his portrayal of Michael in the award-winning short film Weekend in Waterville (2020), which won best student short at Indie X Film Festival in LA, the role of Robert Graham in the award-winning short film Woke (2018) directed by Monica Liao Queliz, and Eric in the Amazon Prime Mini Series When Night Stands Fast (2020). When not on set Jake continued to train in his craft, while performing at Fitchburg State University, the Michael Chekhov Actors Studio, the Steve Blackwood Sessions, and CP Casting.
In 2019 Jake signed with the Andrew Wilson Agency, and began working on commercials alongside projects in film and television. He would go on to lend his voice on spots for Blue Cross Blue Shield and the One Love Foundation. Recently, Jake’s voice could be heard on the One Love Foundation’s Love is learned Campaign, a movement which Jake is truly honored to represent. Jake’s passion for acting has led to so many amazing adventures and opportunities including a pivotal role in the upcoming Boston Strangler Film written and directed by Matt Ruskin and produced by 20th Century Studios.
