Alex Benoit

Alex is an Actor, Singer, Dancer from the western suburbs of Chicago. Recent Credits of Alex include “Something In the Game” with the American Music Theatre Project, as well as the “Daddy Long Legs” Michigan Premier at The Dio Theatre. It became clear at an early age that the arts were the place for Alex, as the youngest child ventured to cast his first movie in the backyard. Playing most sports as a child, Alex eventually began figure skating at the age of 8, after watching his mother judge the National Championships on TV (assuming this would be an easy way to get on TV).

Beginning with Singles skating in 2003, Alex became a National Medalist 2009-2010. He then switched to Ice Dance and relocated to Michigan to train with Olympians under Igor Shpilband, all the while pursuing a BFA Acting degree at Oakland University. Over the years of his competing, Alex became the U.S. National Bronze Medalist 2015-16 at the Junior level, placed 4th at the 2016 Junior World Championships, the 2017 U.S. National Pewter Medalist in the Senior Level, and a World Ranked Senior international medalist. Over the many incredible countries he has competed in, Alex has always loved observing the culture, and his passion for Theatre has only grown. Following the Olympic Season of 2018, Alex decided it was time to retire from Figure Skating to pursue his true passion, Film and Stage.

Alex has performed in Choir and Show Choir in High School at Naperville North, as well as achieved the Dean’s List during all 3 years of his study at Oakland University. He is unbelievably grateful to Gray for the incredible opportunities they have allowed him, and beyond thrilled to be back home in Chicago!
