Actor Alexander Albrecht’s most recent work 2019/2020 includes the Sky Original series LITTLE BIRDS by Stacie Passon (House of Cards, Transparent), the Netflix Original series THE QUEENS GAMBIT by Scott Frank and the Ufa Fiction series KU’DAMM 63 directed by Sabine Bernardi.

Alexander was born and grew up in Switzerland. Although from a small country, he never limited himself in free thinking, in his feelings or emotions or in trying out anything he would desire – for a matter of fact he would describe himself as a citizen of the world. Already as a child he often disappeared and was later found laughing and entertaining strangers. His curiosity for people and different characters, or in particular his zest for life, encouraged him to live in many different places, including New York (where he took drama courses at the established Susan Batson Studio), Mexico City, Italy and in Germany.

Through his travels to different countries and in the search for that “certain something fulfilling”, he realized that all he was searching for was already within. The time he had spent with people from all over the world nurtured his ability to empathize, to listen carefully, to indulge and question, enabling him to transform these life lessons and influences or new found strength in his roles and characters.

Alexander is native in Swiss German and German, fluent in English, Italian and Spanish, with written text highly creative in French or any other accent or dialect, which enables him to move freely and playfully. Ultimately, this also benefits the design of his characters so that they can be filled with life and authenticity.

In addition to working in front of the camera, his heart beats for stage and theater. In January 2020 he premiered his monodrama THE SHOT – Alexander Puschkin’s classic directed by Lioudmila Meier-Babkina (Classical Stage Art Zurich) in St. Moritz & Zurich. In the same team in 2016/17 he played WHITE NIGHTS by a young F. M. Dostoyevsky on several stages and touched his audience with precise character work by the dreamer. Both projects were developed by Alexander and the Russian director as their own stage version and included an incredibly beautiful work process. The comparison of original Russian texts with the respective translations and the resulting dissection of the Russian soul was incredibly touching, philosophically deep and decisive for the work. Alexander was also regularly on tour with his two-man show comedy THE MYSTERY OF IRMA VEP, which was last shown successfully every evening in the main program at the legendary theater festival at.tension # 8 2019.

Together with Lucia Carreras and Machete Producciones, both former Camera D’Or winners (Cannes Film Festival) from Mexico City, he wrote and produced the short film LA BODA DE BABA. With this bizarre work, in which he also played the main role, he was allowed to participate in many international festivals worldwide, but mainly in Latin America (Morelia, Guadalajara, Guanajuato, Festival de Cine Cuba, Gässli). In addition giving him the opportunity to experience the different cultures, which shaped him deeply.

The screenplay BROOKLYN TREEHOUSE, which he co-wrote with A. Edmondson, was awarded “Best Thriller” at The Beverly Hills Screenplay Contest in 2014.

He gained further experience in front of the camera in the productions NACHTEXPRESS, GIULIAS VERSCHWINDEN, AMERICAN CURIOUS, THE COACHMEN, GZSZ and STADTHELDEN.

Alexander currently lives in Berlin and is represented by the German Talent Agency Das Imperium.
