Canadian actor Alexander Calvert hit the headlines when he started playing Jack, the son of Lucifer on the CW hit series, Supernatural in 2017.

From his age, bio, TV shows and films, down to his height, here are all the information you need to know about the Supernatural actor. Enjoy the read.
Alexander Calvert Bio, Age
Alexander Calvert was born on the 15th of July 1990 in Vancouver, Canada; his birth sign is Cancer. Not much is known about his early years except that he was raised alongside his younger sister, Rachel Calvert.
On his educational information, the actor has not shed light on that too. However, his love for the performing arts could be traced back to his early years, especially his high school days. After he got interested in the arts, he was enrolled in a musical theatre and hip hop dancing class. However, at the age of 15, he seemed to have gotten a clearer picture of where his future was headed or rather, what his forte would be. Calvert became interested in acting then and subsequently switched over, pursuing his new passion.
After the necessary training and education, he debuted on television in 2005 on The Dead Zone and would go on to land his first film role in the feature film Kickin’ It Old Skool two years later as young Justin. Besides acting, Alexander Calvert has also done commercials for brands such as Best Buy, General Mills, Kohl’s, Mattel, and Road Runner.
Career: Movies And TV Shows
Since he debuted on the professional scene, Calvert has landed roles both on television series and in films year after year, though he’s been in more TV shows than films. Shortly after The Dead Zone where he appeared in the Broken Circle episode as the 12-year-old Greg Stillson, he landed another gig on TV in the detective comedy-drama series Psych in 2006.
Apart from his first film appearance in 2007, he also featured in two TV films; To Be Fat Like Me and Devil’s Diary. While he did not appear in any other TV work until 2010, he starred in the 2008 film Lost Boys: The Tribe as Grom. He made his television comeback with guest roles in both the Nickelodeon series The Troop and the Fox action drama series Human Target.
In 2012, Alexander Calvert had a starring role in Flicka: Country Pride and was also cast in the made for television film, Virtual Lies. Calvert recorded three acting credits in 2013, including the films Home Sick and If I had Wings, as well as a guest role as Ra’uf in Bates Motel. The following year, he appeared as James Dent in an episode of the Canadian police procedural drama series, Motive.
His next film appearance was in Lost After Dark in 2015. The same year, he also had another film role in The Blackburn Asylum, as well as added two more TV roles to his resume. He then had a recurring role in The Returned as Hunter Gibbs and played Lonnie Machin/Anarky in the fourth and fifth seasons of CW’s Arrow. Alexander Calvert has also had roles in the films; Blackburn (2015) alongside Lochlyn Munro, The Edge of Seventeen (2016) and The Package (2018).
He was cast in the television miniseries Unser Traum von Kanada as Josh in 2016 and also in the anthology slasher series, Scream. In the season 12 finale of the dark fantasy TV series Supernatural, he landed a guest role as the Nephilim, Jack Kline the son of Lucifer, co-starring Misha Collins and Jensen Ackles. Coming into the 13th season, he was upped to a series regular on the hit show.
His Family – Parents
The Canadian actor has been careful or rather tactical enough to veil information about his family. He would rather talk about his career than spill the beans on his inner community. Besides his younger sister who we know as Rachel, there is no other name of a relation available to the media, including his parents.
Meanwhile, after he began to appear in Supernatural, fans and audiences were led to believe that his co-star, American actor, Misha Collins born Dmitri Tippens Krushnic is his biological father. Maybe because the onscreen costars look alike but the only relationship between them remains in the acting sphere.
Still on family matters. Alexander Calvert has reportedly tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, South African actress and model, Jenna Berman. He also has a pet cat named Lord Tyrion who has his own Instagram page.
He is 1.77 metres tall and weighs 75 kg. His perfectly chiselled structure and fine physique are further accentuated by his blue eyes and brown hair. When he’s not acting, he does photography and Yoga.
