Jakob Maddocks was born and raised in Adelaide, where he began his journey performing in school productions and in a variety of plays produced by amateur theatre companies, often inhabiting multiple roles in the same performance. Jakob moved to Melbourne in early 2017, where he began studying a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Drama) at Deakin University. He is currently in his second year, and has played a wide range of roles encompassing multiple genres of theatre. His most recent performance, Crossings, was an interactive site-based performance spread across the banks of the Yarra and the Arts Centre Precinct.
Jakob has taken a keen interest in extra-curricular work. Since moving to Melbourne he has been involved in short films and participated in numerous modelling events. Most recently he worked as a hair model at the Melbourne Hair Expo, and was styled by Guy Tang and his team. He is keen to produce more work on screen, and is eager to sink his teeth into any opportunities that come his way. Jakob is an incredibly hard-working professional, with a fun-loving attitude and committed work ethic.
