1993, Madrid

Since childhood, his main interests have been martial arts and acting.

He made his theater debut under the direction and set design of María José Pazos, after which he decided to enroll in the Municipal School of Dramatic Art. Upon joining La Joven Compañía, he attended numerous courses with Andoni Larrabeiti, Chani Martín, Chevi Muraday, José Luis Raymond, Mariano Marín, and even stage director Josep Maria Mestres. Through this company, he worked on productions such as El señor de las moscas, Hey Boy! Hey Girl! — a version of Romeo and Juliet in which he played the role of the young lover —, a new version of Fuenteovejuna — this time with a script adapted by playwright Juan Mayorga —, and Plastilina. He was also chosen to portray Christopher Boone in the theatrical version of the book El curioso accidente del perro a medianoche. All of these productions were under the direction of José Luis Arellano. In 2023, Álex starred in the theater production Equus by Peter Shaffer, for which he received a nomination for Best Leading Actor from the Actors’ Union. That same year, he participated in the play La Madre, directed by Juan Carlos Fisher, sharing the stage with Aitana Sánchez-Gijón.

His first feature film was Como la espuma by Roberto Pérez Toledo, and later, under the direction of Alejandro Amenábar, he appeared in Mientras dure la guerra.

His early television appearances include roles in series such as Buena gente, Cuéntame, and El don de Alba. In 2019, he joined the cast of the series Caronte, starring Roberto Álamo and Miriam Giovanelli, and shortly after, he joined the main cast of the series Skam. In 2022, he starred in the series Alma, created by Sergio G. Sánchez for Netflix, alongside actors like Pol Monen and Raúl Tejón. His most recent television project is the series El refugio atómico, also for Netflix.
