Jake Hendriks, born Jacob Hendrik Cuddihy in 1981 in Chessington, is the oldest of three children, with two younger brothers, Joshua and Caleb. He attended the Hinchley Wood secondary school and then went to the Tiffin School, a selective boys' grammar school, situated in Kingston-upon-Thames, with specialist Performing Arts College status. He graduated from Guildford School of Acting in 2004. He is currently managed by Burnett Crowther associates Ltd and also works freelance as a professional story board artist.
In an interview with Hollyoaks website, he commented on his on-screen persona:
"He's a laid back guy and as a result he has a calming effect on the McQueens who usually have a manic household. He also seems to be always eating for some reason, nearly every scene I've filmed I've had to be eating something!”.
Previous television roles
Prior to Hollyoaks, Hendriks also had roles in Ultimate Force (Series 3, Episode 3: "Class of 1980") playing Paul Brown; in 3 episodes of Down to Earth ("Broken dreams", "Changes", "Dangerous Liaisons") playing Simon Cole and in Casualty (Series 21, Episode 26: "The Killing Floor") playing Bobby Anstiss.
