Alex started with a youth theater group in Tennessee called The Dreamweavers, in productions of Annie, Alice in Wonderland, Tom Sawyer, The Foreigner, and Anne Frank. In 2010, Alex moved to the Atlanta, GA area to pursue screen acting, such as Franklin & Bash, to other shows like Teen Wolf, The Vampire Diaries, Drop Dead Diva, Hall Pass, The Collection, and The Internship with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.
In 2011, Alex was asked to come in for "zombie school" for the second season of The Walking Dead. From there, it's been an exciting ride thanks to the shows popularity. From magazine covers to fan tattoos, t-shirts, merchandise and other media marketing, it's evident that Alex Wayne has arrived.
