Gordon Alexander

Biography

Born in Edinburgh to Scottish parents, Gordon comes from a long line of talented musicians and performers, the most notable being the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg. His Grandfather, George Milne was an important figure in Gordon's early childhood. Being a percussionist in both the BBC Scottish Symphony and the National Scottish Orchestras, he encouraged Gordon to follow the family tradition. Noticed by his drama teacher at school for clowning around, Gordon was encouraged to participate in school drama classes. At the age of eleven he first appeared on stage in the school production of Aladdin, which planted the seed for his passion in acting. Gordon also excelled at sports and at the age of eight, discovered martial arts. His physical ability led to him winning several British titles in Kung Fu and later on, to be selected as a member of the GB Wushu squad. After completing university he travelled to Beijing, China, and spent several years training and advancing his martial artistry. Quickly noticed by members of the Chinese film industry Gordon soon found himself working as an action actor with some of Asia's best luminaries such as Jackie Chan. In 2002 he was approached by director Christopher Renshaw (The King & I, Broadway) to direct the fights and action sequences in the now, world famous Queen musical 'We Will Rock You' . Gordon's desire to explore his passion for acting, lead him back to the theatre. After refining his skills on stage and a tour to Italy in a theatrical production, he then landed the lead role in a film called 'The Purifiers' in 2004 opposite Kevin McKidd, which spawned a series of film roles. Due to both Gordon's exceptional physical and acting skills and the increasing need for physical actors, Gordon decided to train for the stunt register and after fulfilling the necessary requirements was accepted onto the UK Stunt register. This lead to a series of films in which he stunt-doubled some of Hollywood's biggest actors, including Daniel Craig as Bond in his latest adventures in Spectre (2015). This was also a great opportunity to study some of the worlds best known actors up close and personal. With all this experience under is belt Gordon refocused on his passion for acting and after a successful outing staring as Dr Josef Novak in the Chinese co-pro 'Somewhere Only We Know' (2015), went on to feature opposite Tom Cruise in the latest installment of 'Jack Reacher: Never Go Back' (2016). He has since gone on to feature in 'Kingsman 2: The Golden Circle', and soon to be seen in the up coming film 'Final Score' (2018) with Dave Bautista. Gordon can now be seen on Syfy in the new American DC Entertainment series Krypton, as Commander Quex Ul.
