Who is Petrice Jones?
Petrice Jones is an English actor who rose to prominence for his starring role of Tal on the YouTube Red original series Step Up: High Water.

Petrice Jones Step Up
After been in London for four years, Petrice decided he needed to make the move to the States. At that time, he made a decision to audition for YouTube Red’s Step Up: High Water, based on the massively successful film franchise of the same name.
Luckily he got a callback and everything changed. He described it in an interview: I changed my flight, squeezed my entire life into 2 suitcases, and about 12 hours later, after a heartbreaking goodbye, I left my mother at the doorstep and was sat in a taxi on my way to a new life. I landed in L.A. with the understanding that I really may not even get this role and was ready to spend the next few years hustling to make it through the door (and breaking them down if need be). Luckily, that wasn’t the case.
