Alexandra Castro is an actress, model, dancer, musician, writer, body positive enthusiast and intermediate cook. When not found dancing to Bidi Bidi Bom Bom secretly in her room or watching reruns of The Office, Alex is actively attending theatre, film and television workshops in New York City.

Alex has trained with Tony Nominated Producer, Heather Provost, Rockette, Alyssa Lemons and studied performance at Stella Adler Studio of Acting. In 2015, she produced and co-starred (via a successful Kickstarter campaign) in Neil LaBute's biting, body-image drama, Fat Pig.
As a Model, Alex has walked in fashion shows such as Brooklyn Night Out, The Pink Carpet and SmartGlamour's Spring and Fall 2016 through 2019 Runway Shows during the official New York Fashion Week.
Even throughout a difficult 2020, Alex has managed to keep working on her craft. She studied with legendary TV writer, Brent Forrester (The Simpson, The Office) and completed her first 1/2 hour, Single-Camera, Dramedy Pilot. In addition to writing, Alex was cast in an Off-Broadway digital production of Nilsa Reyna's Legends of Texas, produced by Primary Stages and self produced and co-starred in a digital workshop of David Davila's Aztec Pirates and the Inequity of Sacrifice.
Miss Castro also would like everyone to know her love for the San Antonio Spurs is NOT a joke and will attack when she is crossed about it. Alex also once drunkenly met one of her idols, Idina Menzel. "It was magical!"
"She is a smart, talented, hard working, and passionate actress who takes adjustments readily and understands the work she does from a broad perspective. She has taken advantage of some wonderful training opportunities and absorbs everything like a sponge. She is one of the hardest working people I have ever met. She is an amazingly bright, open, gracious, and beautiful girl and is extremely passionate about learning."
