Michael Sech is a Canadian actor based in Vancouver, BC. He was born in Toronto, but grew up in Edmonton and raised in a Ukrainian family, surrounded by Ukrainian culture, music, and spirit. Learning Ukrainian as his first language helped him connect with his extended family members in Ukraine who are teachers, singers, musicians, artists, and community actors. Their interest in the arts played a huge role in his upbringing and spiked his passion for acting, and singing.
While growing up, Michael took every opportunity to develop his performance skills by participating in school concerts, musicals, and taking various acting classes. He successfully graduated from the Drama Academy in high school, and participated in acting workshops, conventions, and competitions including Faces West Vancouver, and the International Presentation of Performers in Los Angeles.
In order to pursue his dream of a professional career in acting, he moved to Vancouver to study at New Image College of Fine Arts Acting Conservatory, where he had the privilege to be trained by many great actors including Philip Granger, Peter Hanlon, John Emmet Tracy, and Raugi Yu, and graduated in 2018. Michael has performed in several theatre productions, including most recently playing the role of “Tom Donohue” in “These Shining Lives” by Melanie Marnich, as well as “Talk to Me Like the Rain, and Let Me Listen,” by Tennessee Williams.
Additionally, Michael has had lead and supporting roles in films such as "Swan Song," and "Alvin," and most recently appeared in the TV show "Siren" on the Freeform network.
