About

Aleksandar Popovic was born on October 6, 1984, in Belgrade, (former) Yugoslavia, though his family originated from Daruvar, Croatia. He is the son of Nadia Popovic, a medical EMG technician, and Michael Pepa, a classical music composer.Aleksandar and his Mother moved to Toronto, Ontario, Canada well before the Yugoslav Wars began in 1991. Though Aleks often struggled in school, he always found refuge in the arts. His Mother was a catalyst in encouraging all forms of artistic expression, whilst his Father made sure he was formally educated in classical music theory and history.Aleks was exposed to film by his Father which led to a tradition, between the two, of going to the movies every Tuesday. This sparked a love affair and obsession with film that ultimately grew into the pursuit of acting as a profession.The first step on this journey led him to Humber College's Acting for Film & Television program in Toronto. After his first year, Aleks received the President's Letter from the Dean of College for outstanding performance in all academia and was given a grant to continue on to his second year in the program. read more
