The son of Korean and Italian parents, Alex Landi grew up in New York focusing on sports and hoping to become a professional tennis player. When his parents took him to see The Lion King on Broadway, he was mesmerized by what he saw and knew then he wanted to be an actor. After high school, he put tennis aside and started training at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. He has been practicing martial arts for much of his life and has trained with professional fight teams to better hone his craft for the stage and screen. Alex gets his kiss on in an episode of Grey's Anatomy where he and another guy share a very steamy moment while at work. The two are at the hospital when they step inside a room and make out. There is no real skin here, but the sexual tension is through the roof!
