Actor Known for His Role in "Lovecraft Country"

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Jonathan Majors Biography

Jonathan Majors is an actor known for his role in "Lovecraft Country."

He rose to prominence after starring in the 2019 independent feature film The Last Black Man in San Francisco. In 2020, he garnered wider notice for portraying Atticus Freeman in the HBO television series "Lovecraft Country."

Majors was born in Lompoc, California, and spent his early years living with his family -- his mother, a pastor, his older sister, Monica, and younger brother, Cameron -- on the Vandenberg military base, due to his father being in the Air Force. Majors has stated that one day his father just disappeared and he resurfaced 17 years later. Majors has reconnected with his father.

The family lived in Texas for a while, and Majors graduated from Duncanville High School in 2008. Majors was a troubled teenager: he was arrested for shoplifting, suspended from school for getting into a fight, and at one point, he lived in his car while working two jobs to make ends meet. Majors eventually found a "safe space" in the world of theatre.

Majors studied for his bachelor's degree at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and later attended the Yale School of Drama, graduating with an MFA in 2016.

Majors secured his first on-screen role in the ABC miniseries "When We Rise" while still a student at Yale. In the series, Majors portrayed real-life gay activist Ken Jones; as part of his research for the role, he met with Jones before playing him.

That same year, Majors appeared in his first feature film role as Corporal Henry Woodson in the revisionist Western film Hostiles, written and directed by Scott Cooper. More roles followed, in the 2018 films White Boy Rick and Out of Blue.

In 2019, Majors rose to prominence after starring in Joe Talbot's critically acclaimed independent feature film The Last Black Man in San Francisco, for which he received an Independent Spirit Award nomination. Former President of the United States Barack Obama rated it as one of the best films of 2019. Majors' performance was praised by critics, with Manohla Dargis of The New York Times calling his performance "a mournful heartbreaker," while Rolling Stone described his turn as "both deeply sensitive and charmingly left-of-center."

Majors also appeared in three other 2019 film releases: Captive State, Gully, and Jungleland.

In 2020, Majors starred alongside Chadwick Boseman and Delroy Lindo in Spike Lee's war drama film Da 5 Bloods, which was released on Netflix. That same year, he also garnered wider notice for portraying Atticus Freeman in the HBO television series "Lovecraft Country."

Majors is set to star in The Harder They Fall, a film releasing in October of 2021.
