WELCOME AND CHECK OUT MY NEW DEMO REEL
Stephen Mendel was born and raised in Montreal, Canada and speaks fluent French. He is a dual American/Canadian citizen. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Drama from Bishop’s University and further postgraduate studies at Concordia University he began working in theatre, film and television. A few years ago Stephen decided to complete his Master’s Degree in Theatre and received an MFA from California State University, Long Beach. While there he taught acting, theatre history and audition techniques. He was living in Los Angeles in the 1980s appearing on television and movies, when he was offered the role of Detective Fred Carson on the CBS series “Night Heat” which ran for five seasons and filmed in Toronto, Canada. In Canada, Stephen had the opportunity to work on mini-series and guest star on other episodic television. He also hosted broadcast and live charitable events. Since that time, Mendel has appeared in dozens of films and television series. Very much a chameleon, he is often unrecognizable from one role to the next, playing good guys and bad, scientists, doctors, lawyers and judges. He grows beards, mustaches, wears hairpieces, glasses, etc. in the quest to capture the character. He has studied with many teachers and uses synergistic approach to acting. A master of accents and dialects, he performs voice work in animation, narration, video games, audio books, radio and television commercials. He loves to play guitar and sing, especially folk music. He also studies an obscure martial art called aki-jutsu, skis, and teaches scuba diving.
