Roar with KK, Episode 11: Johnathon Schaech

Roar with Katherine Kendall

In 1992 Jonhathon Schaech was chosen by Italian auteur Franco Zeffirelli to star in his new movie Sparrow. Zeffirelli was then at the peak of his power and influence. Jonathan was 22 years old and thrilled to have been chosen by such an artist from all the young actors in the world. In 1995 Jonhathon starred opposite Rose McGowan, now a mutual friend, in Gregg Araki’s stylish thriller The Doom Generation. Since then Jonhathon has accrued nearly 100 onscreen credits, working with many of the world’s greatest and most influential actors and directors. He’s also a writer, producer, and director himself, with multiple credits in each role. It wasn’t until he saw his former costar Rose go public with her story, that Jonathon felt ready to come forward with his. In the January 11, 2018 issue of People Magazine, he published a moving personal account of his harassment and sexual abuse by Franco Zeffirelli on the Italian set of Sparrow, writing frankly about its devastating effect on his next twenty-five years as a man. If you don’t know what Jonhathon looks like, he said it himself on Twitter: “I’m 190 lbs 6 foot and lean as a Cobra!” Every bit of that is true. He’s a big guy with a powerful presence—and the courage to talk about the vulnerability and fear that even big men can suffer in the face sexual aggression from a respected and powerful mentor. WARNING  This podcast contains graphic conversations about trauma, rape, and sexual violence.
