Born to a French mother and Martinican father, Alex was raised in the heart of central France. His father, a Vietnamese martial-arts instructor, initiated him into the arts at an early age. Alex soon became a star of the podiums, winning 3 times the title of champion of France in Viet Vo Dao between 1997 and 2000.At 17 years old, while still following his sports studies, Alex also began to practice dance, Parkour (aka "the Art of displacement, initially made popular by the Yamakasi, and later by its namesake film) and acrobatics.This combination of moving arts led him to create a show combining sports, stunts and acting, with the proceeds benefiting children's education in Viet Nam.His regional notoriety got him a place on the generic for the film Kiss of the Dragon with Jet Li. His role, while canceled at the last minute, sparked his decision to focus on his professional acting ambition and led him, over the course of three years, to play in two successful musical comedies.
