Born and raised in Vancouver, Alex Bergen is a multidisciplinary artist, performer, voice-over actor, and storyteller. After just completing his first year as a Musical Theatre student at Capilano University, Alex is thrilled to spend his summer with the Gold Fever Follies after a restful month back home in Calgary! Alex has been lucky enough to perform across Canada, spanning over 60 stage productions since he began acting. Beginning his professional career at just 16, Alex has worked both on stage and screen. He also starred in many cartoons and has worked on video games for Nintendo as a voice-actor. He has also worked with clients like Netflix, Teletoon, Nickelodeon, YouTube, and Hulu. Most notably, he has given his voice to multiple characters on the hit television show BeyBlade. He was honoured to receive the 2016 Youth of Distinction Award for his work in Calgary Arts & Culture. In addition to his career as an actor, he has the title of Artistic Director under his belt! Serving as Calgary’s youngest Artistic Director, Alex founded The Honest Collective, a semi-professional theatre company focused on emerging artists telling grounded works and sharing important stories. Since it was founded in 2019, he has produced two musicals with his company; Bare: A Pop Opera, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee where he starred as Matt Lloyd and Chip Tolentino, respectively. Other favourite roles include George Gibbs in Our Town, Emmett Forrest in Legally Blonde the Musical, LeFou in Beauty and the Beast, and Charlie Brown in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
He is beyond thrilled to be bringing this story to life and is so thankful for everyone in the cast and crew. When not in or around the booth, studio, or theatre, Alex is a big fan of spontaneous adventures, finding the best cheese pizza around, and helping others properly pronounce his last name. Alex loves telling stories and is immensely grateful for the opportunity to tell them for a living. He also wishes to send his extended thanks to his incredible mom, Diane, and to his friends and family for their never-ending support. He hopes his mom is ‘Proud of Her Boy’. For you, Scott.
