Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, Vincent earned a BA in Drama at San Francisco State University and apprenticed at The Williamstown Theater Festival. He trained classically at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London.

Vincent began his theater career in Germany after serving as a Communications Specialist 31K in the Patriot Missile Unit of The U.S. Army. He played Tom in Tennessee Williams' 'The Glass Menagerie' and Jerry in Edward Albee's 'The Zoo Story.'

He then moved to Massachusetts and performed in plays such as 'Lysistrata'; 'Hedda Gabler'; 'The Miss Firecracker Contest'; The Boor; and 'Henry IV,' directed by Austin Pendleton at the Williamstown Theater Festival.

Venturing westward to California, he performed in 'Macbeth,' 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and 'Measure For Measure' at Shakespeare & Company in San Francisco. His repetoire was further enriched as a member of the San Francisco Mime Troupe. His movie debut was in MGM's 'Golden Gate' with Matt Dillon and Joan Chen, directed by John Madden ('Shakespeare In Love').

After his stint in California, Vincent moved to New York where he played the lead male character opposite actress-playwright Pamela Sabaugh in the award-winning 'Woman in the Animal Kingdom' at the New York International Fringe Festival.

Other New York credits include his portrayal of Malcolm in 'Macbeth'; Algernon in 'The Importance of Being Earnest'; Rosalind in the "switched-gender" casting of 'As You Like It'; Butch in 'The Good Time Boys' at The Wings Theatre; Hortensio in 'The Taming of The Shrew'; Oliver in 'As You Like It" at Pulse Ensemble Theater and recently finished playing a co-lead in 'A Subway Story' at The Fantastic Experimental Latino Theater.

While working in New York, Vincent was cast in a national tour with Chamber Theater Productions of Boston playing Roderick in 'The Fall of the House of Usher, General Zaroff in 'The Most Dangerous Game' and Sam in 'The Ransom of Red Chief.'

A talented voiceover artist, his extremely versatile voice has earned him numerous roles in feature animation such as 'MD Geist II,' 'Garzey's Wing' and 'Genocyber.'

Vincent's extensive acting range landed him lead roles in 'I, Traveller' and 'Fender Saves The World'; and TV appearances in 'Saturday Night Live,' 'As The World Turns' and 'Beverly Hills 90210.'

Currently, Vincent Bagnall is working on a documentary about the history of Germany in the early 20th century, entitled 'Weimar: Dancing on the Edge of a Storm.'
