Biography

Copyright 2016, Alexander Fazel. All rights reserved.


Growing up in Toronto, Canada, Alexander caught the acting bug in high school when he was "coerced" into starring in a play for the school's annual Spring Festival. Upon getting his first thunder of applause and laughter while on stage, he was hooked. After graduating with a Double-Major B.A. in Mass Communication and Sociology, he realized that he would much rather be an actor than to have to work nine-to-five. And so, our Canadian and now American (with some British blood infused in his veins), embarked on a studious journey with Antony C. Hyde, a wonderful British coach in Toronto, Second City and the Equity Showcase Theatre. Several plays and independent films later, he moved to Los Angeles to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. After finishing the Summer Program at the AADA, Alexander began attending the Beverly Hills Playhouse, where he trained with renowned instructors Al Mancini, Richard Lawson and Milton Katselas, during his eight years there.


Alexander's hobbies include Martial Arts, Astrology, writing, activism, Salsa dancing, surfing the Internet, eating milk chocolate (now being forced to eat dark chocolate since every bloody thing is bad for you), sleeping, socializing & contemplating the Zen of Bidets.
