Jerome St. John Blake Leaves the Dark Side of the Force for NEComicCon
Jerome St. John Blake is an English musician, producer, and actor. He’s played parts in some of the biggest movies of our generation, but because most of his roles are in a masked costume (or include voice-over work) you may not recognize him. He began his acting career as one of the knights guarding Sean Connery’s King Arthur in the film First Knight in 1995. After playing a succession of roles, including Mondoshawan in The Fifth Element, creature effects supremo Nick Dudman called him to say: “I’m doing Star Wars now”. After Jerome congratulated him, Nick simply said “Do you want to be in it?”
Jerome St. John Blake was a Star Wars fan since he saw the first movie, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, on its opening day back in 1977. It was a no brainer – he immediately said yes. A year later he had seven different characters in Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. He reprised several of those roles in Episode 2: Attack of the Clones, and Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, where he received a “special thanks to” credit.
Since his roles in Star Wars, he’s appeared in films such as The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, as well as television, and voice-over roles in video games.
