Australian Actor Alex Radu Stars In The Iconic ‘Elvis’ Biopic

Actor Alex Radu will play Elvis’s best friend George Klein in the new Elvis movie, in theaters June 24.

It’s amazing when you think about how many people would just love to be in the movies as opposed to just watching them in a movie theatre. Ask almost anyone and he or she will tell you that if they could, they would absolutely jump at the chance to be a movie actor. Can they make it in this very competitive industry, they might ask? Of course, they can, will be the answer most professional actors will give, including Alex Radu, the Australian actor. They can make it if they don’t give up their dream, no matter what obstacles are in their way.

Thank goodness for people like Alex Radu, the Australian actor with a positive attitude who has been acting professionally for several years and who never gave up. Fortunately, he knew that he wanted to be an actor at a young age and began acting in earnest at thirteen. He almost went into journalism but his love for acting won out and he immersed himself in all things acting at the eminent Australian school of acting, The Actors Workshop, in Brisbane, Queensland. He studied with great acting coaches like Paul Booth, Larry Moss and Rob Doran to name a few, and had extensive training in the styles of acting masters such as Stanislavsky, Uta Hagen, Stella Adler and Grotowsky.

He began working steadily after he graduated and performed in commercials, theatre, television and films. His resumé is too long to delineate each film and project that he had featured parts in -however, one of the most anticipated films which Alex has an important role in, is the upcoming movie “Elvis”.

The Elvis Movie stars Tom Hanks as Colonel Tom Parker, Austin Butler as Elvis, and Alex Radu as George Klein. The film is directed by Baz Luhrmann, maker of Moulin Rouge, Strictly Ballroom, The Great Gatsby and other major artistic and critical hits. It is scheduled for release on June 24th and promises to be one of the big splash hits of the year. When Baz Luhrmann helms a film it usually raises the bar of creativity as far as movies go. Tom Hanks is always a big draw because of his huge talent and likability, and Alex Radu now finds himself working with his equals and has come a long way from his first acting role at the age of thirteen.

George Klein, by the way, was Elvis’s best friend and they were both “Best Man” at each other’s wedding. George Klein played an important and influential role in the life of Elvis, including his music and movie career. They met when they were in the eighth grade and became fast friends and it only ended when Elvis passed on.
