Los Angeles based action specialist Jon Braver has performed in some of the industry's most acclaimed films and television shows including INDIANA JONES and the KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL, IRONMAN, THE KINGDOM, STAR TREK XI, & STOP-LOSS to name a few. Over the years, Jon has had the privilege to work for and with some of the best stunt coordinators and directors in the industry. Working with these talented individuals has enabled Jon to understand what it takes to deliver a director's vision. Jon's talent lies in his range. Explosive wire work, creative fight sequences, sword fighting, acting and driving fill out just some of that range.
Originally from Chicago, Jon began his career, one could say, in High School. From skateboarding, gymnastics, martial arts, sword fighting and what is now called "freerunning" Jon played around with every physical sport. It was not until he saw a Jackie Chan film called "Drunken Master 2" in 1990 that he realized his calling. Yet, music was equally as passionate a field to him. Jon attended and graduated from Chicago Musical College with a degree in Music Business and Guitar. While attending College Jon worked as a professional gymnastic coach, studied acting (at the famous Second City Chicago), practiced martial arts and sword fighting. Yet, he never lost sight of the dream of stunt work. He decided to pack up and take a shot at the film industry. Long story short, Jon has built an impressive resume due not only to his skills and determination ( and luck...everyone needs luck) but his professional attitude.
