Eugene Lipinski

Acting Instructor


Few can ignore the presence and respect for the art that New Image College’s Eugene Lipinski demands.


Eugene began his career as an actor at the age of 12 in Regina, Saskatchewan, appearing in local amateur theatre. It was on the stage, where Eugene is sighted as developing his love for the art.


After high school Eugene would attend the University of Regina, but would soon find himself returning to his native England to train at the Royal Academy of Arts, as well as the Drama Studio London. After graduating Eugene would travel throughout London, performing in dozens of plays and early film work. He would return to North America as his film career began to take off and he soon began performing in such films as Superman II, the Oscar nominated Outland, starring Sean Connery and Peter Boyle, Shock Treatment, and Firefox, which Clint Eastwood both starred in and directed.


Eugene would gain international recognition by starring in the psychological thriller, Moonlighting alongside Jeremy Irons. Lipinski would go on to work with such iconic actors as Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline in Sophie’s Choice. Four years later, Eugene would star alongside Dennis Hopper and Michael J. Pollard in, The American Way.


The next decade would see Eugene be a part of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Affliction starring Nick Nolte, Aldrich Ames: Traitor Within starring Timothy Hutton, Water Damage starring Daniel Baldwin, Mail to the Chief starring Randy Quaid and The Recruit starring Al Pacino and Colin Farrell. In addition to a long list of impressive film credits, Eugene has starred in such shows as Animorphs, Da Vinci’s City Hall and Intelligence, both by legendary creator Chris Haddock. You can see Eugene in recurring characters on the Syfy channel miniseries Alice, JJ Abrams’ Fringe, CW’s Arrow, and the soon to be released The Romeo Section.


Few can match the impressive and immense size of career that Eugene Lipinski has had. He is a man who understands the business both as an actor and writer, having won a Genie award for best original screenplay for his film Perfectly Normal.


“I love what I do. I enjoy every minute of it. I also love sharing my experiences with the young and upcoming generations of actors that we have come through New Image. It’s amazing to be a part of their growth, and to see them truly transform through the program we teach”.
