Phil Borg
Actor
Non Union

Based in Toronto and a full ACTRA member, Phil has performed in both professional and amateur film and theatre, both domestically and abroad. An alumnus of LAMDA in the UK, Humber College in Toronto, and Queen’s University in Kingston, Phil is a classically trained actor, award-winning filmmaker, and bonafide film geek.

Since moving to Toronto in 2006, Phil held leads in three outdoor Shakespeare productions for Dreamnorth Theatre Co. from 2007-2009, playing Sir Toby in Twelfth Night, doubling Benedick and Dogberry in Much Ado About Nothing, and playing the love-lorn Demetrius in Midsummer Night’s Dream. He was also a founding member of the Queen’s Men for the PLQ Society, which produced three Elizabethan productions showcasing authentic Elizabethan theatre practices. He has also acted in plays for the Toronto Fringe Festival, and Summerworks Festival.

Additionally, Phil spent two years working with Montréal-based Mad Science Productions and CBS on two large-scale youth-targeted theatrical productions, Star Trek Live (2010) and CSI: Live (2011). These were highly interactive performance-based shows that required a dynamic attitude, audience interaction, and grace under pressure.

Aside from his acting work, Phil has also played host and MC for various charity events including MC of the Rebecca’s Hope Charity Cruise for four years (2006-2009) and also the Upstaging Cancer (2009) theatre showcase in support of the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.

Also a filmmaker, Phil’s first feature, New Year (2010), won Best Film, Best Actress, and Best Soundtrack at the Clearwater Film Festival and is available internationally through The Orchard, and domestically by Multiple Media Entertainment. It has played on Rogers OnDemand, and is available for digital download on Amazon and iTunes. His subsequent short film, Virtual Hitman, premiered at the 2015 Reelworld Film Festival, and has since gone on to play at the 2015 Cannes Shorts Corner, various North American comic cons, and the 2015 Vancouver Asian Film Festival, where it won Best Canadian Short.

As always, a special thanks goes out to his loving and supportive family.
