– Colin Thomas, The Georgia Straight

Alex was 8 years old when it became clear what she was supposed to be in life. It was after a riveting performance in a community theatre production of ‘Grease’ in which she had one line: “sure.” On the ride home from the finale performance she could not stop sobbing in the back of the family’s minivan, crying, “Nothing will ever be this fun!”

As it turns out if you become an actor, it could.

Alex’s love of everything on stage continued into high school where she sang with the award winning Seycove chamber and jazz choir. With her choirs, she was given the opportunity to perform at many incredible places including the Rocky Mountain Festival in Banff, OrlandoFest in Florida and, most notably, the legendary Carnegie Hall in New York City.

After high school, Alex was accepted into the Musical Theatre Program at Capilano University. Already passionate for acting and singing, it was at Capilano where she discovered her love of dance. She threw herself into school with gusto and worked everyday to perfect her craft. After 3 years of intensive training and growth she graduated with honors.

Since graduating university, Alex has worked extensively in Vancouver and across Canada in musical theatre, sketch comedy and film & TV. After three stints on Untold Stories of the ER executive Bob Niemack said “Alex has a remarkable way of being completely at ease and in control on set. It sets the tone for all the other actors. If we didn’t have so many independent storylines on ER, I’d have Alex on as a recurring character.”

She has also worked for numerous theatre companies including Theatre Under the Stars, Royal City Musical Theatre, Footlight Theatre, and The Virtual Stage.Alex was the recipient of an Ovation Award for “Outstanding Ensemble Member” in 2012 and was a nominee for the same award in 2014.

She believes a performer is never done learning and continues to train as she looks forward to the next stage of her career.
