Weston was born in Charleston, South Carolina. His mother is an educational therapist and his father runs a Christian radio station.

Biography

Né en 1988 à Charleston (en Caroline du Sud), Jonny Weston entre à 18 ans à l'université de Columbia où il suit une école de théâtre. Trois ou quatre ans plus tard, il monte à New York et y commence sa carrière d'acteur avec, en 2011, un des rôles notables du film Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You, aux côtés de Toby Regbo, Marcia Gay Harden, Ellen Burstyn et Lucy Liu.

Néanmoins, les propositions de travail sont rares, voire inexistantes, jusqu'à ce qu'on l'appelle à Los Angeles. Il s'y installe et, dans le film About Cherry dont James Franco est la tête d'affiche, on le remarque en petit ami d'une starlette du porno.

En 2012, on peut le voir également dans John Dies at the End (première mondiale à Sundance en janvier de cette année-là) et dans Sugar .

Sa carrière change de dimension quand il décroche le rôle principal de Chasing Mavericks que Curtis Hanson réalise pour la 20th Century Fox ; il y personnifie Jay Moriarity, surfeur légendaire de Californie du Nord, qui meurt dans un accident de plongée en 2001, la veille de son 23e anniversaire. Dès lors, Hollywood pense à lui pour toute une série de films. C'est ainsi qu'en France, début 2015, Jonny Weston est à l'affiche, simultanément, de Taken 3, Projet Almanac et Divergente 2 : L'Insurrection. La même année, on le voit également dans We Are Your Friends (au côté de Zac Efron).

The film’s opening credits have a lingering sense of unease to them, which is capitalized on as soon as Caroline and Jackie arrive at the “surprise birthday party” Caroline has planned for Jackie (despite her birthday not being for two months and it actually being Caroline‘s birthday) – where the dynamic between the pair (and Ryan, to some degree) is pushed out to the larger group, ratcheted up by rapid cuts and lingering looks between Jackie’s friends. But it’s not just a surprise dinner party that Caroline has put together – when the group ends up back at Jackie’s place, the real “party” is revealed. It’s an intervention for Jackie, headed up by Caroline, who hopes that she and Jackie’s friends can help her with a variety of issues – anorexia, pill abuse, alcoholism, and even sexual promiscuity.
