Alex Winter is the son of Gregg Mayer and Ross Albert Winter, who were dance teachers. At the age of five, the family moved from England to St. Louis, Missouri, USA, where his father established the Mid-American Dance Company. When he was 13 years old, Alex moved to New York City to study Film at New York University, and parallel with that, he began pursuing his acting career, appearing in Broadway productions including “Peter Pan”, “The King And I”, and “The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up”, among others.

Right after graduation, Alex’s professional acting career began, when he made his debut appearance in the role of Marko in the cult vampire film “The Lost Boys” in 1987, which was followed with the role of Dr. John William Polidori in the 1988 film “Haunted Summer”. His breakout role came in the following year, when he was selected to play Bill S. Preston, Esq. in the cult comedy classic “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure”, with Keanu Reeves. As the film became an enormous success, he repeated the role in the TV series with the same name in 1990, and in the film’s sequel “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey” in 1991. To speak further of his acting career, Alex appeared in such film and TV titles as “Saul Of The Mole Men” (2007), “Ben 10: Alien Swarm” (2010), and “Grand Piano” (2013), all of which added a considerable amount to his net worth.

Apart from his successful career as an actor, Alex Winter is also known as a film director, who worked together with his friend Tom Stern. His first big project was the MTV comedy show “The Idiot Box” (1993), which was followed with his work on the film “Freaked” in the same year, after which he took a break before returning with the 1999 film “Fever”.

Additional to his directing career, Alex has also directed a number of music videos for the bands RHCP, and Ice Cube, contributing further to his net worth. Most recently, he directed the documentary film “Deep Web” (2015), “Smosh: The Movie” (2015), and currently he is filming “Zappa”, which is scheduled for release in 2017.

#Quote
1The trick of making movies in this culture is how to not give up everything that makes them worthwhile in order to get them made - and that's a tricky balance.
2With Fever (1999), the film was so made for the screen, and there's so much surround sound that was done for the film - enormous detail paid to that. I wasn't thinking video, because I didn't know how it was going to turn out.
3The thing is there have been American movies that are similar to Solaris (1972), like Alien (1979) had a lot of things that are similar, although it's also got the horror element.
4The film, even when we were making it in that budget range, which was really a coup - we got it made because we pitched it to the studio head, Joe Roth.
5Like I said about Freaked (1993), people tend to find these films, and I think that in the end the cool thing about a movie is that it can be sort of burnt temporarily, but then it's burnt into the fabric of your culture.
6I'm not saying it isn't frustrating that my films haven't gotten a bigger release, but I'm really happy with them and if you just keep cranking and eventually, if you have a certain sensibility, some of your movies will hit and some just won't.
7That's kind of the weird thing that M. Night Shyamalan has sort of unleashed upon the world is this need for every movie to have these ridiculous endings.
8The thing about movies these days is that the commerce end of it is so inflated and financiers are just expecting this enormous return on their investment.
9They're innocent movies, and they're fun movies and there were no pretensions about 'em.
10After living in LA for 8 years, I sort of wanted a change, but there's not much production in New York, which is where I primarily live, so I just sort of drifted over to London.
11I'm really influenced by so many different things.
12It's hard for a hit to be bad for your career.
13Same thing, like my commercials are often times really funny because I tend to find 30 seconds is a really good amount of time to tell a joke.
14I think filmmakers want their movies to be seen.
15I take a lot from everywhere. I take from music, architecture, novels, and plays. Anywhere that hits you.
16I'm one of the few people who really like Eyes Wide Shut (1999).
17I'm not trying to be some kind of underground renegade.
18I think movies are good for getting into dream states or exploring weird alternate states of thinking.
19I actually did use to sell shoes.
20I really love sort of classical cinema where people were telling stories with very little dialogue, and people were using the camera in a really interesting way.
21I direct a lot of TV commercials and music videos.
22Coppola has problems getting financing, so why should I not have problems getting financing.
23But it is funny, because I saw Unbreakable recently and it's a strange movie, I didn't mind it, and it's got some interesting things going on.
24My favorite favorites are people like Bunuel, Fellini and Charlie Chaplin.
25Certain remakes are great. [John] Carpenter's The Thing (1982) is better than the original.
26I get very driven by certain themes and ideas.
27I just like movies that somehow expose the world in a way that's different than you imagine it.
28Hitchcock had to fight to the death to make his movies.
