In this episode of "Kahnversations," we interview Alex Quijano.
A northern California native, Alex attended The University of California @ Davis and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology while also pitching for the Aggie baseball team…the perfect beginning for every actor. After graduation, he crushed his parents “Our son is going to be a doctor!” dreams and moved to LA to become an actor.
After grinding his way through serving jobs and substitute teaching Algebra, Geometry, and Art, Alex finally broke into the commercial world with the never award winning, Spanish market only Tecate beer commercial as...a baseball player (no dialogue). Thankfully this crumb of hope led him to quitting all other jobs and fully pursuing acting. That lasted 4 months and he returned to the serving world. After that kick of reality to the face, he became more driven and 3 short years later actually began working commercially (union only people).
This string of success led him to getting hip pocketed by a theatrical agent and finally making his theatrical debut on the award winning C.S.I. as SEXUAL MALE NEIGHBOR #2 (neighbor #1 has never been identified). Since then, he began the slower than normal climb to success. Thankfully it’s started to work out. You can now catch Alex in recurring roles on FRESH OFF THE BOAT, THE FOSTERS, KEVIN “PROBABLY” SAVES THE WORLD and 13 REASONS WHY as well as other shows and movies over the years. He has a super cute dog, Marlon, a smoking hot bod, and is 100% Colombian (looks white).
Alex recently broke his hand…in acting class…on a sofa. A sofa.
