Dexter Strong first trained as a visual artist and is now acting full-time. Dexter brings the care and precision of his past work as a carpenter and the adventurous spirit of an ocean sailor to his passion for the screen and stage. Also a teacher and father, his empathy for the experience of others is revealed in a fine-tuned and understated approach to performance.

How long have you been a part of the industry?
I came to acting from the production end of things. I was teaching technical theater for several years in the New York City public schools and got so jealous of my students that I started training. Turns out having an actor for a dad and being around theater all my life didn’t hurt. I was pretty good at it, so I started training seriously in 2016.

What inspired you to pursue acting, writing, directing?
I originally trained as a visual artist but I was always jealous of live performers’ capacity to be so fully present with other people that my creative interests finally led me to legit acting.

What work are you most proud of recently?
In 2018 I produced and acted the lead role in a two-hander by Lee Blessing called Great Falls. 90 minutes on stage without a break. That was the most challenging role I’ve done. I have had some great smaller roles in short films and recently shot a pilot directed by Emily Ruhl called 13th Stepping. She’s going places, and it’s good to be attached to ambitious work.

What advice would you give to fellow actors, writers, directors?
Build structure and accountability into your routines and friend groups. Hang out with people who are serious about what they do. Mind your own destructive thinking, and talk back to it.

What are you working on now?
I trained for and produced a commercial VO reel this last year and it’s beginning to pay off. I wrote a feature last year and now I’m producing and will have the lead in, a proof-of-concept short version called South Shore. I need to have specific projects ahead of me or I get squirrely. I’m always perfecting my self-tape audition chops. Life goes on.
