He remained in Britain to work with various theatre groups, until he returned to Canada to further his theatrical career in this country. He has appeared in the rock musical "Hair" at Toronto's Royal. Alex, was a member of the St. Lawrence Centre company, and has appeared with the Stratford Festival.
He embarked on a television career, whose credits include "Police Surgeon,"The Collaborators," "The Play's the Thing," "Peep Show," "King of Kensington," and "The National Dream."
In 1975 he guest-starred in a Sidestreet episode, and in 1976 began his role as Sgt. Olsen.
