Private Lives Cast

AlexClayHeadshot2Alex Clay as Victor
For Pure Carbon:
Four days after defending his Masters’ thesis in History at the University of Guelph, Alex made a career move. He debuted as Jason in Guelph Little Theatre’s Rabbit Hole. After moving to Toronto, he discovered the world of acting in short plays with Theatre InspiraTO, Social Capital, and Small But Mighty Productions. Alex then got his creep on. First, as a dimwitted camera operator turned enigmatic demon in Interview with a Demon, then as a teenage prodigy turned psychopathic murderer in The Dialogues of Leopold and Loeb. Some of Alex’s favourite credits include Luke Richmond in Inch of Your Life: Episode 1 with the theatre dept. at last year’s Toronto Fringe Festival and Stanley Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire. Alex is thrilled to be working with Pure Carbon Theatre and this amazing group of artists. He would like to thank his family for their unwavering support and his fiancée Kate for her unconditional love…and willingness to participate in casual line runs (pssst. best non-actor self-tape reader in the city). Catch Alex and Brittany Cope in July as they reunite in Some of us Pretend with Bricks n’Sticks Productions at the Hamilton Fringe Festival!
