Jordan Rountree was born in Paris, France. After high school in the US and in Japan, he was accepted into the prestigious Classe Libre at the Cours Florent acting school in Paris, studying with the Promotion 32 under Jean-Pierre Garnier. During that time he played Hamlet at the Pompidou Center in the multimedia performance “Pourquoi Pas Toi”, in Terence Koh’s “Adansonias”, and recently as “N” in François Orsoni’s “Youth Without God” at the Théâtre de la Bastille. Jordan has also founded the company “Damaetas” with fellow members of the Promotion 32, a fledgling collective and blog that experiments with creating theatrical content for the internet.

We hope the show gets picked up and that we will be seeing more of Rountree, as Whit Stillman is always great at picking fresh new talent.
