Alexander Ludwig Height, Age, Dating, Girlfriend, Vikings Acting Career

Even with an actress as his mother, Alexander Ludwig had to painstakingly convince his parents to let him venture into the world of acting. At the time, his parents were convinced that child stars always have a hard time distinguishing between reality and the screen world after they have been sucked up into the fantasy that usually comes with the entertainment industry.

His parents gave their consent for him to start acting as a child which is evident in his notable film credits some of which include The Seeker: The Dark Is RisingHunger Games and History Channel series Vikings. Let’s take a sneak peek at the Canadian singer, model, and actor’s early life and career.

Biography (Age)

The actor was born as the first child of his family on May 7, 1992 in Vancouver, British Columbia. His parents – Sharlene (mother) who is a former actress and Harald Horst Ludwig (father), who banks as a businessman and the co-chairman of the board for Lions Gate Entertainment Corp also gave Alexander Ludwig three younger siblings including Nicholas (brother) and Natalie (sister) who were born as twins and another younger sister named Sophia.

According to Ludwig, he has always had a soft spot for performing arts but had a hard time convincing his parents to let him pursue acting as a child. This despite his mother’s background in the career.

Information about his educational background is not detailed online but we can confirm that he is enrolled as a theatre major at the University of Southern California before which he attended Collingwood School.

Movie Exploits And The Vikings Acting Career

Having gotten the consent of his parents, Alexander Ludwig embarked on his journey to fame in the film industry at the age of nine. After featuring in a Harry Potter toy commercial, he signed with an agent and worked on more commercials before the movie roles started rolling in. He has cinema, television and several films to his credit. Some of the movies he was cast in as a budding star include Air Bud: World Pup (2000), MXP: Most Extreme Primate (2003), Scary Godmother: The Revenge of Jimmy (2005), Eve and the Fire Horse (2005), The Sandlot: Heading Home or The Sandlot 3 (2007).

He also made appearances in movies made for television and TV series like A Little Thing Called Murder (2006), and television series such as The Dead Zone, among others after which he landed the lead role in The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising released in 2007. He had to pass through 16 auditions to get the role and it’s quite safe to say it was worth it. The actor had to find a balance between filming the Seeker and getting his school work done.

Aside from his role in Grown Ups 2 alongside Adam Sandler, Alexander’s next lead role came in the film production of Race to Witch Mountain (2009). He played Seth with Dwayne Johnson in the cast. The film was an instant box office hit, opened at number one the weekend it premiered and grossed an estimated $25 million.

Another hit under his belt is the movie adaptation of The Hunger Games in which Ludwig appeared as Cato released on March 23, 2012. The acclaimed movie got Ludwig two prestigious awards – MTV Movie Awards for Best Fight (2012) with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson and a Teen Choice Award for Best Villain in the same year.

In 2014, Alexander Ludwig joined the main cast of the TV series Vikings, replacing Nathan O’Toole as Björn Ironside, the son of Ragnar Lothbrok and Lagertha.
