Born in Hong Kong to Australian parents, Alex grew up in Asia until she was sixteen before moving to Australia to study.
She studied Economics and Journalism before accepting a place at prestigious London acting school, Rose Buford College. Alex studied for her MA in Writing during her pregnancy with her first son. A second followed two years later.
Alex has lived and worked on four continents and her multi-cultural background means she is deeply interested in people from all walks of life and her experiences imbue all of her characters.
She is a founding member and co-director of Anywhere Festival, a festival dedicated to connecting people with place through performance, anywhere and she began her production journey at Seeding Time Pictures, before starting Pivot City Films.
Though acting is her first passion, writing is in Alex’s blood. She hails from a long line of writers, including english poet, William Wordsworth.
In 2018, Alex opens the year at La Mama Courthouse, Melbourne with a new play by Sandra Fairthorne.
