  • Casting describes Alex as "a handsome, protective and brave counselor who’s described as the classic polo-shirt wearing 'John Hughes Villain'. He may be a candidate for the coolest guy at Stillwater, but he wants to be friends with everyone, especially Amy".[2]
  • While auditioning for the role, Ronen Rubinstein was told Alex was a Russian with a Soviet past, and it was all going to be revealed in the second episode. Coincidentally, Rubinstein also happens to be Russian himself, and Russian is his first language.[3]
  • Alex was the fifth main character to die.
