Alejandro Speitzer is a Mexican actor who was born in Culiacán, Sinaloa on the 31st of May 1995, and is well known for the famous crime drama The Club. His full name is Alejandro Sanchez Speitzer, and he chose to go with that name instead of opting for a stage name. He has one brother - Carlos Speitzer, and moved to Mexico City with his family at a very young age.

Although many young actors struggle to make an impact in the industry, that wasn’t the case for Alejandro. He has been a charmer since he was a child, and he started his career from a Mexican mini television series Ray of Light in 2000 when he was just five years old.

He first showed off his perfect naked physique in The Club which made all the girls go crazy. Later he was seen practically naked in almost all episodes of Dark Desire, and that body can’t go unnoticed. Women around the world automatically wanted to know who Dark Desire star Alejandro was.

Ladies! You can swoon over this hot man as much as you like, but let me warn you that he is not up for grabs. Yes that is right - Netflix star Alejandro Speitzer isn’t single! He is dating the famous actress Ester Expósito from the Netflix show Elite. They both have been very open about it, and do not shy away from showing their love in public.

In fact, their relationship was first revealed by Ester herself through an Instagram post when she posted a picture with him and captioned it ‘Roma e tu’ meaning Rome and you. They both have not hesitated from posting pictures and stories together which I kid you not, is so cute! I totally adore the couple.
