Henry Jaglom

Henry Jaglom is a London-born American actor, film director and playwright. Born January 26, 1941 in London, England to Simon and Marie Jaglom, Henry Jaglom trained with Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio in New York, where he acted, wrote and directed off-Broadway theater and cabaret before settling in Hollywood in the late 1960s. Under contract to Columbia Pictures, Jaglom guest-starred in such TV series as Gidget and The Flying Nun and acted in a number of films which included Richard Rush (director)'s Psych-Out (1968), Boris Sagal's The 1000 Plane Raid (1969), Jack Nicholson's Drive, He Said (1971), Dennis Hopper's The Last Movie (1971), Maurice Dugowson's Lily, aime-moi (1975) and Orson Welles' never-completed The Other Side of the Wind. Jaglom's transition from acting in films to creating them was largely influenced by his experience watching 8½, he told Robert K. Elder in an interview for The Film That Changed My Life. The film changed my identity. I realized that what I wanted to do was make films. Not only that, but I realized what I wanted to make films about: my own life, to some extent.
