Biography

Alexander Ludwig (born on May 7, 1992 as Alexander Richard Ludwig) is a Canadian teen actor. He played Will Stanton in the 2007 fantasy film, The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising. In March 2009, Ludwig appeared in a lead role in Disney’s Race to Witch Mountain.

Early life

Ludwig was born in Vancouver, British Columbia. He has twin sisters, Natalie and Sophia, and a brother, Nicholas. His mother, Sharlene (née Martin), is a former actress, and his father, Harald Horst Ludwig, is a businessman. The actor was drawn to the profession, saying in an interview, “I have a big imagination. I love performing.” Yet, despite his mother’s early career as an actress, Ludwig had to convince his parents to support his desire to pursue a career as a child actor. His parents believed that child actors “can get sucked into a life that isn’t reality.”

Career

Ludwig’s career began when he was nine years old in a Harry Potter toy commercial, a job that enabled him to sign on with an agent and obtain more commercial work. After which, he was cast in movies such as Air Bud World Pup (2000), MXP: Most Extreme Primate (2003), Scary Godmother: The Revenge Of Jimmy (2005), Eve and the Fire Horse (2005), The Sandlot: Heading Home (aka, The Sandlot 3) (2007). In addition to cinema, Ludwig has also worked in television. He has performed in movies made for television, such as A Little Thing Called Murder (2006), and series television such as The Dead Zone. Ludwig obtained his leading role in The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising (2007) after a “gruelling audition process.” By his count, he had 16 auditions before finally being cast.
