At first, Alex was trying to get the role of Fabian Rutter, but producers told him to tone it down and found it funny how he wore a suit at the casting. So, after some unsuccessful tries, they've decided to give him Alfie's script. They already knew that he was perfect for this role.

He has no pet animals.
Alex's favorite food is roast chicken in rice. It's something that his dad used to make all the time, and how Alex said, it's amazing.
Alex and his cast mate, Brad Kavanagh, had a little competition between themselves to see who would get their driver's license first. Alex ended up winning.
While filming the first two seasons, he was living with his castmate Eugene Simon in an apartment. Eugene said in one of newest Anubis Unlocked episodes that it was really weird not having Alex around, but he still enjoyed that in this season, there were so many scenes for Alfie and Jerome (see Jelfie).
Alex loves when Eugene Simon cooks for him.
Alex said that if he could keep one set prop, it would be Victor's watch. He said he had an unhealthy obsession with it.
