Steven Ogg’s Bio (Age)
Steven Ogg was born on November 4, 1973, in Calgary, Alberta. As a young boy, he nursed a dream of becoming a professional volleyball player and he had the talent to back it up. He devoted his leisure time to practice and training, but his hopes got derailed after he sustained an injury that sentenced him to never play again, at least not in any competitive capacity. After this, he decided to turn to his love for acting. Steven began attending acting classes.

Some of the places he has resided in include Vancouver, London, Toronto, Milan, Paris, and Montreal. Steven finally wound up in New York City, where he lived with an old friend while trying to get his acting career off the ground. He made his screen debut in the 1999 film, Giving It Up.
Things finally turned around for him and he was able to land consistent acting jobs on shows like Law & Order, Third Watch, as well as the films like Thousand Dollar Shoes, Mail Order Bride and Omakase. Steven Ogg then went on a long hiatus in order to focus on designing and building a house by himself out in the woods. After he made his comeback to the industry, Rockstar Games hired him to serve as the motion capture and voice artist for their game, Grand Theft Auto V. The role became critically and commercially successful, helping to boost his popularity and open up bigger opportunities for him in the acting industry.
