Jonas Nay attended Johanneum zu Lübeck, a Gymnasium with a music specialty, where he also played in the school's Big-Band. Because of his interest in the theatre, Nay replied to a newspaper advert looking for actors in 2004. He landed a starring role in the German children's series Vier gegen Z on German TV station NDR, with the Hollywood actor Udo Kier, who played a villain. In the first two seasons of the television series, Nay acted under the pseudonym Jonas Friedebom, and he played the character Otti Sörensen. In the following years, he played minor roles in several television productions on German television stations ARD and ZDF. After graduation, he played the lead role in the TV series Home Video, a drama about a young boy, bullied by his classmates who publish an intimate video of him. The production was awarded the 2011 German Television Awards for the best TV film. Nay himself received a German Television Award, as well as a 2012 Grimme-Preis Award. This work was followed by other leading roles in TV films. In 2012, Nay participated in the last scene of the Hamburg investigator “Cenk Batu”, Crime Scene: The Ballad of Cenk and Valerie, about a disturbed serial killer who is killed by his mother in the heat of the moment. For his role as the son of a schizophrenic in the 2013 film Hirngespinster, he was awarded the Bavarian Film Award in 2013 as “Best Newcomer.” Jonas Nay opted for Zivildienst, rather than military service, working with people with disabilities; he went on to look at film scoring. He founded the band Concerted with other students in Johanneum, in which he sang, played guitar and piano, and wrote the lyrics. The band worked on music for the Stephan Rick film The Good Neighbour in January 2013. The result was the forming of the new band Northern Lights.
