Having been born into a world littered with rhinestones and Jheri curls, Alexander Gauthier inadvertently learned at a tender age how imperative it was to stand out. Beginning as a hyperactive, borderline malnourished Harry Potter look-alike recreating music videos in his front yard before transforming into an overly emotional metal vocalist with contradicting wardrobe pieces, he was off to a pretty decent start. Armed with an immensely alert and empathetic mind, a unique and positive disposition, and an insatiable thirst to express, explore and create, he eventually engaged himself in the art of storytelling in the forms of film and stage.Alexander graduated from New York Film Academy, where he studied Acting for Film —something he discovered he had an affinity for from classes at C.P. Casting, Inc. in Boston. He took home his first acting award (Best Actor) in 2014 for his role in the dark comedy short, “Showing…” from the Portland, ME 48hr Film Project. He is currently working on a couple independent features and has some slated shorts and sketches in the works. Alexander also dipped his toes on the other side of things in 2014, by producing, screenwriting and directing. He is a producer with Boston-local indie film production company, “Sensorium Pictures.” He produced a Top 20 short for “HBO’s Project Greenlight" competition as well as his directorial debut, a comedic short, “Sain’t Anthony.”Dramatic roles that are appealing to Alexander are those which have something to discover, dissect and understand; A character that has something to say and something to evoke in you whether it’s pleasant or not (Think character types often portrayed by Ewan McGregor, James McAvoy, Casey Affleck, Elijah Wood or Andrew Garfield.) As for comedy… as long as it makes him laugh, he’s interested! Be it the straight man, the sarcastic guy, the moron or even some quirky character, Alexander is comfortable and enthusiastic all-around.All the world’s a stage and he intends to dominate it. More-so the metaphorical “stage” than the literal “world.” That would just be evil and probably a lot of praise-less work. Either way, he’ll be sure to stand out. He is familiar with the Boston, New York City and Los Angeles areas.
