Commercial Acting Teacher/Hip-Hop Instructor/Owner of Prodigy Talent Training
Prodigy Talent Training founder and CEO, Jonathan McFadden, is an actor, producer, and educator who has been working professionally in film, television, and theater since childhood. Prior to opening PTT, Jonathan lived and worked in New York and Los Angeles where his credits have included various roles in many entertainment genres. He is the winner of a Telly Award for his on-camera hosting work, and has been on the creative team for several theme park entertainment projects for Disney and Universal. As a working actor now living in Central Florida, Jonathan believes in giving back to the community by volunteering a portion of his time to assist local schools’ drama departments. He and Prodigy Talent Training, along with its network of industry experts, coaches, agents, managers, casting directors, actors, models, photographers and producers share a common goal — to help promising and dedicated talent find success and fulfillment in this fast-paced business. In his (precious few) moments of spare time, Jonathan enjoys fine cigars, theme parks, and collecting accouterments of traditional barbershop culture.
