Personal Life:
Brener was born in Cali, Colombia in 1987. He lived there until the age of eight, then made Aliyah together with both his parents and younger brother to Kibbutz Ein-Dor in the north of Israel.

Growing up in the Kibbutz, he was exposed to a totally different way of living from what he was use to in Cali which was then one of the most dangerous cities in the world. Security, freedom to walk the streets of the kibbutz and visit friends were few of many thing he immediately embraced upon his arrival.

His life in the kibbutz included working the fields, growing crops, working in the Kibbutz factory ‘Teldor’ making cables for communication and working with animals in the dog boarding located by the Kibbutz's small zoo.

Brener’s family left Israel in 2004 back to Colombia, while he decided to stay. Brener got enlisted to the IDF and served as a Chayal boded (lone soldier).
He finished his service as a Staff Sargent commanding thirty soldiers and was awarded the “outstanding presidential award” for his service by president Shimon Peres.

After his service he worked as a Lifeguard in the Dead Sea (and yes, there is a difference between sinking and drowning ladies and gentlemen).
Igal moved to Tel Aviv to start his Acting training and passed the auditions to one of the most prestigious acting schools in Israel, Nissan Nativ. This school became his home for the next three years.

After graduating from acting studio he continued to nine years of participating in theater plays, from the most prestigious repertory theatres to amazing young audience plays, films and TV shows.

Brener won the ASSITEJ Outstanding Performance Award For a leading role in theatre For Young Audiences (2015).
He Moved to the U.S. in May 2022 to accomplish his goals, and is looking forward to work in the best TV and Film productions in the world, featuring actors such as Daniel Day-Lewis,Tom Hardy and Leonardo DiCaprio.
