Who Am I?

Who am I?

Hello, I'm Magali Jeger—your friendly neighbourhood storyteller.

 

Antwerp is where my story begins, growing up with a Dutch mum and a Belgian dad. My secret talent? Effortlessly switching between Dutch and Flemish.

 

At 18, I hopped over to the UK for a theatre degree, sprinkling in some international flavour with stops in Moscow (Russian Academy of Theatre Arts) and Bali (ISI Denpasar). After graduating, London beckoned, offering two and a half years of acting, writing, and a bit of controlled chaos.

 

You might have caught my plays - A Blue Something and The Dalton Sisters - on the UK stage. I've also worn the Assistant Director hat for "In The Heat of That Night"  (a translation of Sérgio Roveri's bittersweet comedy). Or seen me playing roles in "Dog" (by Francesca Pazniokas), "Siblings" (a unique take on José Triana's work adapted by Daniel Passi), and bringing holiday cheer with the Polar Express Christmas extravaganza (based on the film by Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.). 

 

Now, I'm living in Amsterdam while reconnecting with my hometown, Antwerp. As a creative developer for a production company, I work in the creation of scripted TV shows and films—always fiction. And, I'm honoured to be selected as one of the three Streamz Academy finalists, a unique initiative to develop a pitch for a thriller into a full-fledged series.

 

But one of my proudest achievements is my novel, "Hanna" . It is a fictional retelling of the real story of my great-grandmother. 

 

Whether I'm lost in stories, taking a bow on stage, or stirring up drama for the screen, I'm just here for the storytelling.
