A message from Alex:

Hi there and thanks for checking out my website! I am a 17 year old British / Aussie actor, singer, film maker, composer and designer (anything creative really) and have been working professionally as an actor for the last 6 years or so. I have been fortunate enough to be involved in some pretty amazing productions including playing 'Michael Banks' in the Sydney season of 'Mary Poppins' at the Capitol Theatre, 'Under Milk Wood' with the Sydney Theatre Company, 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' with the Belvoir Street Theatre Company, 'Intersection' with ATYP, 3 seasons with Opera Australia and 3 seasons of pantomime at the King Street Theatre, Newtown, along with a number of film and television appearances. I am also a classically trained baritone singer (AMusA Dist.) and give regular vocal recitals around Sydney where I am currently based, although I am hoping to work overseas in the future. Hope you enjoy my website!

 

5th Dec - Exam Result!

I got an A+ High Distinction for my AMEB grade 4 Drama and Performance exam last weekend - yay! The examiner said "It was one of those performances that makes examining a delight". So pleased because I worked so hard but now I'm going to have fun with my friends, then it's Christmas!

12th Nov - Acting Scholarship!

Just found out that I won the Junior (years 7, 8 and 9) Acting Scholarship for next year at my school!!! The best news EVER! Now I can study acting 4 days a week all through next year which I LOVE. Soooooo happy!

8th Nov - TV Commercial

My new TV Commercial is on the internet (and should be on TV next week). It's for the National Broadband Network and you can catch it on Youtube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=06DKel-XMpU

4th Nov - Fun filming and hard work!

Still crazy busy even though it's nearly the end of the year now! I've had a few auditions, some of which I'm still waiting to hear about, and some still to go, so lots of preparation to do. Last week I made a film about diabetes awareness which was very interesting and afterwards they said "Alex was friendly, witty and performed as instructed by the director, due to this he was lots of fun to work with. In my honest opinion; Alex is a bright, energetic and talented young boy and I believe he will progress greatly in his future career" which was really nice! I hope they are right!

8th October - Result!

Great news - I took my AMEB grade 5 singing exam at the weekend and I found out today that I got an A+ (high distinction)!!! Amazing - especially as it's not recommended you take grade 5 until you are 16 and I am 11 (sorry - bit of showing off there!). It was really hard work though but good to get the qualifications. More exams and auditions coming up soon - better get practising!

28th August - more comps

Been soooo busy - lots of speech and drama sections at Ryde Eisteddfod where I won 5 first, 1 second and 2 third prizes, then just tonight I came first in our school junior vocal competition! The judge (Blake Bowden) said I had a "sublime voice" and a "commanding stage presence" and guess what - he used to have the same singing teacher as me! I sang Panis Angelicus in the comp - one of my favourite songs!

5th August - Speech and Drama!

Another crazy week of Eisteddfods - this time the speech and drama sections at Ryde. I competed in 5 sections and won 4 first places (11 years test poem, 11 years verse, 12s / under prose and primary mime) and one third place (12s / under humorous verse). I LOVE ACTING! 5 more sections still to go over the next few weeks.

26th July - Eisteddfod success!

Last weekend I took part in the singing sections of the 2012 Ryde Eisteddfod. There was some tough competition but I came away with 2 first and 3 second prizes, as well as a highly commended, for the 6 sections I entered. My first prizes were for the 11-13 years classical sacred solo and the 12s / under amplified vocal solo. The seconds were for the 11-13 years folk song, the 11-14 years character song and the 12s / under classical vocal solo. Now I need to rest my voice ready for the speech and drama sections next week. Eisteddfods are a great way to get performance experience and it's how I started out, so why not give it a go? Bye for now, Alex xxx.
