Gage Munroe has been acting professionally since he was eight years old. After two summers at acting camp, Gage asked his parents whether he could add acting to his long list of extracurricular pursuits. In the five years since, he has had the great fortune to explore the many sides of the film and television industry, performing in TV commercials, movies of the week, children’s animated series and feature films.
Some of Gage’s notable credits include: television shows such the Steven Spielberg produced Falling Skies and the hour-long NBC drama The Firm; TV movies including Lifetime’s Sunday’s at Tiffany’s and the Hallmark Channel’s highly rated The Night Before the Night Before Christmas (for which Gage was nominated for a 2011 Young Artist Award). Gage also voices the main characters in the eponymously titled animated series Mr. Moon and Justin Time, and plays the recurring role of Matt in the preschool favourite My Big, Big Friend.
In the fall of 2011 Gage appeared in the blockbuster 3-D feature film Immortals, in which he had the opportunity to work opposite Freida Pinto and John Hurt. More recently, he played one of the lead roles in the critically acclaimed Canadian production I Declare War, winner of “Best Picture” and “Best Screenplay” at ActionFest, an up-and-coming genre film festival in the United States. Gage is also very proud to have played a support lead in the upcoming Canadian feature Mad Ship directed by David Mortin.
Gage’s passion for film transcends all aspects of the art and business of movie making. When he is not in front of the camera, he can often be found making and editing short films of his own – either that, or playing hockey or baseball, depending on the season.
