Dark Eden

'Dark Eden' is a promotional short film by Golden Light Studios.
Alex plays the very dark, evil and sinister Triad Lord 'Xinhai'. This was the first intense character Alex played.

"A character like Xinhai, you can really get your teeth stuck into, but I would not want to play too many of these guys, the dark places you have to go to, doing a full film for this type of role, I would have to get in tremendous physical, mental and emotional shape. As fun as they are to play, they can be very draining."
