Ian Alexander Overview
Ian Alexander was born to a Caucasian father and Vietnamese mother who immigrated to the United States. His father works for the Department of Defense which is the reason why his family has constantly moved from one place to another. During Ian’s elementary school years, he was mostly seen in Community Theater and chorus.
Ian is from a Mormon family but isn’t a participating member. In 2014, he came out as transgender and identifies himself as trans masculine and pansexual. Although Ian’s highly religious parents condemned his transition, Ian went through with it independently and proudly. Ian Alexander is now a very powerful advocate for trans rights, using his platform to spread awareness about issues with family acceptance of trans people.
Ian had his first acting career through a role in Netflix’s mystery drama, The OA. He played Buck Vu who is a transgender youth. After his debut, Ian was seen in different films such as Every Day (2018), Naughty Dog (2017) and joined the sequel to a popular video game as a voice cast, The Last of Us Part II.
