Alex Benoit

My name is Alex, and I'm an actor and coach based out of Chicago!

While I'm American, I studied in London, receiving my Masters Degree from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, where I trained with some of the top Drama Tutors in the UK, graduating with First Class Honours.

During my time in London, I was certified to Native Standard for RP, so if you're looking for a British Accent, I can help!

Since retiring from my time as a Team USA Ice Dancer, I have worked professionally in the Chicago Theatre, Film, TV, and Commercial markets, working on SAG and AEA projects.

I am passionate for the discoveries of acting, and actors I have worked with have booked AEA LORT contracts, SAG TV gigs, and National Commercial Spots!

Whether you're reading through sides for the first time, looking for coaching/a new perspective, or just wanting to put it in front of someone, I'm happy to be that someone!

If you'd like coaching, just let me know! Otherwise, I'm happy to just read through with you while you make your own discoveries!

I love working through text, helping other actors reach their potential, and look forward to working together!

If I'm not on, just shoot me an email:
