While Alex Watson is a British model and actor, he is popularly known as the younger brother of the popular Harry Potter British actress, Emma Watson. Beyond his bio, the following covers the lesser known facts about the English man.
Alex Watson’s Bio
This Burberry model was reportedly born in Paris, France on the 15th of December 1992, his full name is Alexander Chris Watson. Apparently, little is known about his mother who got divorced from his father – Chris Watson – when he was still young. It is however known that he has a step-mother called Jacqueline Luesby. His father and stepmother are both Lawyers.
Alex’s elder sister, Emma Watson acted as Hermione in the Harry Potter series. He also acted in the same series but as a supporting cast and so may not have been really noticed. You will find him in 2001’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone alongside star actor, Radcliffe Daniel. He also showed up in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Also, they both featured in a Burberry Fashion commercial photo shoot for the 2010 Spring campaign.
These siblings seem to be very close and dear to each other’s heart. Asides his darling sister, Alex has a half-brother and twin half-sisters named Toby, Nina and Lucy respectively.
In the pop musician Pixie Lott’s music video, he also made a slight appearance, this was in 2010. Also in the same year, Alex Watson did a modelling gig for the international frame manufacturer called Silhouette. He was involved in launching the Titan Minimal Art eyewear campaign.
From what we learned, this bloke graduated from high school after a pretty tough time balancing both his studies and modelling career. It is said that his modelling career came as a huge shock to him as he never saw himself as a model. Alex’s childhood dream was to become a TV Journalist like Louis Theroux. He was out shopping in Burberry for a suit to wear to a Harry Potter premiere when someone walked up to him and suggested that he meet with their Creative Director (Christopher Bailey). This meeting was successful as was his shooting that it earned him some flowers and a thank you card.
The handsome Brit is in a dating relationship with Nina Jacobs, his long-time girlfriend.

4. Alex Watson has amazing looks with his brown hair colour and dark brown eyes. He also stands at quite a remarkable height of 5 feet 11.5 inches.
