About me

Jeff Alexander was born, raised and lived in Birmingham until March 2011, when he moved to Doncaster.

After leaving school he worked for ten years as a Diamond Miller. He then changed careers in 1990, gaining an acting degree at one of the country's premier drama schools, B.S.S.D. now known as the Birmingham School of Acting.

Jeff has a great love of Shakespeare. Roles in this genre have included:
Autolycus; THE WINTER'S TALE.
Mercutio & Prince Escalus; ROMEO & JULIET.
Alonso & Stephano; THE TEMPEST.                                                                
Murderer & Soldier; MACBETH.
Macbeth; MACBETH.
 
For companies such as The Swan Worcester, The Royal National Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company and Vienna’s English Theatre.

Jeff has toured nationally and internationally (USA, Japan, Austria and Italy). 


He was also directed by Eamonn Walker (OZ, LORD OF WAR, ER, OTHELLO, TEARS OF THE SUN, UNBREAKABLE), playing the male lead in DEPARTURE LOUNGE.

Furthermore, he played the lead both as Don Othello Moor in Pitch Black (an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello), and as Macbeth for Vienna’s English Theatre, touring Austria and Italy extensively.

Jeff has appeared in the BBC Drama “DEATH IN PARADISE," the “McDonald's BCO 2011” commercial and more recently B&Q’s early summer commercial
Soon after moving to Doncaster Jeff won a place on West Yorkshire Playhouse’s New Writer’s course, where they staged his first short play THE HOUSE.

He played CROOKS in OF MICE AND MEN and revisited the rôle of ALONSO in THE TEMPEST for THE WATERMILL THEATRE.
After WORDS BY ALFRED FAGON Jeff joins filming on Ep. 2 of the brand new CBBC series HANK ZIPZER as Frankie's Dad, then filming on FROM HERE TO THERE as a consultant in a superb, new 3 x 60 mins drama from Peter Bowker, and from 26th December 2013 can be seen in the new Eurocamp commercial.
