Alex Sparrow recently released a quirky new video for his new single “Never Be Friends” that garnered a cool 1M+ views in just days! Press Pass LA was on hand to interview Alex about his new music and his career.
You may recognize Alex most recently as the bad boy ballet dancer in the Lifetime TV series UnReal, but he’s had a long career as a musician and dancer, in addition to being a film & TV actor and director.
Alex was first propelled towards stardom in his native Russia after winning The X Factor at just 17-years-old. After landing a record deal with Universal Music, he repped his native country at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest. The singer then became a familiar face on television in his home country, having appeared on both The Bachelor and Dancing With The Stars.
Alex shared with our Editor in Chief, Jennifer Buonantony, the inspiration behind his new video, his career ups and downs, and his inspiring story of overcoming a life-altering accident that threatened to change his path forever.
