Arun’s love of acting goes way back to when he would perform William Wallace narration pieces from Age of Empires II to amuse his family at parties. It took two decades and a detour into studying neuroscience at the University of Toronto before those little spores of performance mania truly took hold, but he now counts himself firmly in the clutches of the dramatic arts.
He has had the enormous privilege of performing on historic Toronto stages like Theatre Passe Muraille and Alumnae Theatre, the gateway of indie Montreal theatre at the Mainline, the Conservatory, the Segal Centre, and most recently the Centaur Theatre. Since coming to Montréal four years ago, he has diversified his performance media, gaining the opportunity to be a part of three TV shows (Future Man, The Bold Type, About Sex). Most recently, he has dived deep into the exciting world of voice performance in animation and video games, and he hopes that in the next four years he might have the opportunity to wade deeper into this rich and exciting field. Arun is very excited to be a part of this most brain-tingling and funny-bone-tickling production of “Frankenstein”. He hopes you enjoy the show!
