About Jarno



 
 

Jarno is a freelance actor, producer and director from Helsinki, best known for his stage work in the Helsinki Gay Theatre (HGT). He has also appeared in a number of films, television programs and commercials, such as Tom of Finland, Syke, Salatut Elämät and Aallonmurtaja.

Originally from Southern Lapland, Jarno received his Master’s degree in 2005 from the University of Vaasa. He specialised in communications, digital video and audio production, economics and information technology. Following his studies, Jarno went on to become an IT security professional for a large international company based in Helsinki.

Alongside his professional career Jarno has always held a great passion for acting and working both in front of and behind the camera. Surprisingly, it was only in his mid thirties, that Jarno decided to take the leap of faith and pursue his desire to perform on stage and become involved in film, television and commercial productions. The opportunities Jarno has received have only further increased his determination to develop his second career as an actor and to improve his craft.

At the moment Jarno lives in New York and studies acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre. Students are taught Meisner Technique through a system of exercises created by Sanford Meisner, who was one of the greatest acting teachers of the 20th Century.
