Who is Jack Turner?
Born on August 31, 1985 in Weymouth, Dorset, England, Jaxon Turner is an actor, best known for his work in several Hallmark Channel original films. He’s also worked on other popular shows throughout his career, with some of his biggest projects including “The 10 Year Plan,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” and “My Summer Prince.”
Jack Turner’s net worth
As of early 2020, Jack Turner’s net worth is estimated to be over $250,000 earned through a successful acting career. Though he has yet to break through as a mainstream star, his consistent work has helped him build his wealth. Besides acting, he has also been involved in music and video game projects.
Beginning of early life, education and career
At a young age, Jack had no intention of pursuing a career as an actor, initially focusing more on music, and invested heavily in finding success as part of a band. Growing up, he took lessons on keyboards and guitars and learned as much as he could about stringed instruments. He eventually joined a band called Cable Car, but they didn’t have much success, although they did manage to record and release a few music videos on YouTube. It even reached a point where the band created a website, but it was eventually discontinued.
Jack then focused more on his education, and after graduating from high school, he enrolled at the University of Oxford, earning a degree in Neuropsychology, with a focus on Experimental Psychology. He completed his education and then moved to the US in search of better job opportunities. He settled in San Francisco, where he worked for the technology giant Google, better known for its popular search engine and its ownership of the website, YouTube.
Transition to acting
Turner worked for Google for over five years and was looking for a hobby at the time, as music no longer seemed like a prospect.
He started taking acting lessons and soon became more involved in the craft and saw himself as a professional actor. He later left his job and moved to Los Angeles where there were more opportunities in Hollywood. His first auditions were successful and as a result he started working on several commercials.
He also had supporting roles in film and television projects, before landing his first starring role in 2014’s “The 10-year plan”, which tells the story of two men who are best friends but are total opposites in terms of personality. They challenge each other to find the right person for them and make a deal to be together when they never find a relationship that works.
Towards the end of their deadline, they do everything they can to save Mr. Right to find. The film did not receive much attention, mainly due to a lack of marketing and the use of common themes in romantic comedy films.
Ongoing acting projects
After this performance, Jack was cast in the television series “Stitchers” as a minor character, appearing regularly, although he did not have as much credit as other actors. The show aired on Freeform and followed the story of a woman who is hired as a Stitcher for a government agency. These people have the memories of the dead engraved in their minds so they can try to help criminal cases that would otherwise go unsolved.
The show ran for three seasons before it was announced that it was cancelled.
Then he made a guest appearance on the TV show “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”, a CW spin-off show “The Flash” and “Arrow” share the same continuity of these shows. The show features various heroes and villains recruited by a time-travelling agent to help defeat villains from across the timeline. The show has been running for five seasons and stars Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, and Dominic Purcell. He then went on to work for the Lifetime television channel and became part of their original film “Fatherly Obsession”, which tells the story of a woman who is haunted by an obsessive landlord who considers her to be his estranged daughter.
Recent Projects – Hallmark Channel
In recent years, Turner has found most of his projects with the Hallmark Channel. The company known for its greeting cards ventured into television and is known for its family-oriented programming, often producing original series and movies for general audiences. Hallmark is known for filming several romantic movies and using actors from Canada, making it a popular channel in the country.
His first Hallmark movie was “My Summer Prince,” which tells the story of a public relations executive who must travel to deal with a rebellious prince, then finds himself in an unusual romantic scenario. He then worked on the movie “One Winter Weekend”, starring Rukiya Bernard and Taylor Cole in the story of two women who get snowed in on a skiing trip and then get stuck with two men. One of his latest projects is the Hallmark Movie “Forever in my heart”, starring Merritt Patterson – the film is about a couple who broke up, but meet again five years later while in Ireland.
Jack started dating Tanja Djelevic in 2015. She is a fitness trainer who works as part of Loud Fitness, titled Holistic Wellness & Movement Coach. The two dated for four years before deciding to get married in 2019. They have no children and it is unknown if they have any plans for children anytime soon. In 2020, he shared the news online that he had contracted the coronavirus as the resilient disease had spread to different parts of the world. He successfully recovered from it and now volunteers to help treat the disease.
