Damir Andrei


B: in Zagreb (in former Yugoslavia)

Damir Andrei arrived in Montréal with his family in 1963 at the age of eight. He spoke no English nor any French. Early in his life he decided to become an experimental filmmaker but dropped out of his alternative high school to backpack around Europe before auditioning for the National Theatre School. His motivation? At the time the prestigious school was under the guidance of Douglas Rain, who was the voice of HAL in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. Much to his own surprise he was accepted and became an actor. He pursued his post-graduate career in Toronto where he makes his home.
