Throughout the past year Alex Pangburn has had success in both the T.V and film industries. He played a lead role as an ice skating psychopath in an episode of Twisted Tales of My Nine to Five which aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network and Investigation Discovery. He played a fun, beer drinking roommate in the Lifetime movie, The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story. He can be spotted as the green alien Greedo in a Global Star Wars/Subway collaboration commercial. Alex has most recently wrapped his first feature, Midnight Sun, staring Patrick Shwartzenagar, Bella Thorne and Rob Riggle.
When Alex isn’t drinking beer or attacking people in hockey rinks or living out childhood Star Wars fantasies, he is busy with his first love, theatre. Some of his favorite credits since graduation include Motel in Fiddler on the Roof at The Gateway Theatre, and A Room With a View at the Jericho Arts Centre.
Although, Alex has focused mostly on T.V and Film since graduating from UBC with his BFA in Acting, he has brought much of his theatre roots to his roles. He attributes his self understanding and confidence to the BFA at UBC.
“The BFA has shaped me as an actor. Much like a caterpillar to a butterfly the BFA serves as a cocoon. When the transformation was complete, I found that I was still very much myself but with more tools at my disposal. The program enforces that “You are Enough”. The first thing I do is always to look for myself in a role and the training from the BFA helps me in my search every time.”
