Jonathan TIersten

Actor, Musician

To the casual observer taking only a cursory glance at the career of Jonathan Tiersten, one might only know him from his iconic role of Ricky in the legendary horror film “Sleepaway Camp.” While Jonathan “JT” Tiersten completely owned the role of Ricky and relishes it to this day, “Sleepaway Camp” was not a landing zone for his career — it was a launching pad for this true Renaissance man. In addition to “Sleepaway Camp,” Mr. Tiersten starred in, and was associate producer of, “The Perfect House” in another iconic role as the serial killer John Doesy — a masterful portrayal that won Best Actor in a Feature Film at The Underdogs Film Festival, Best Supporting Actor in a Feature Film at The Macabre Faire Film Festival and was nominated for the same award at The Scarlet Waters Film Festival.

JT has also starred in “Redemption” where he plays a pimp in a major role alongside George Loros (best known for his portrayal of Raymond “Buffalo Ray” Curto on the HBO series “The Sopranos”), Meredith Ostrum (known for her roles in “Love Actually,” “Men Don’t Lie” and other movies) and veteran film/television actor Barry Primus. And, of course, “Return to Sleepaway Camp” would not have been complete without Jonathan Tiersten reprising his role of Ricky Thomas. Jonathan also has several other upcoming feature films in the works for this year.
