Nurturing an impressive body of work that encompasses film and television, Alexander Ludwig is positioning himself as one of Hollywood’s most promising young talents as his career continues to evolve with exciting and challenging projects.

Alexander stars in Walt Disney feature film “Race to Witch Mountain”
alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, which opens nationwide on March 13, 2009.  He marked a milestone during the filming of the movie:  he turned 16.  Among his gifts from cast and crew was an acoustic guitar from Dwayne Johnson, also a gifted player.race_to_witch_mountain-202x300.jpg

A Vancouver, British Columbia resident, Alexander entered the entertainment business at age 10 by booking his first ever audition for a television commercial.  Roles in several family films soon followed, including “Eve and the Firehorse,” “MXP: Most Xtreme Primate,” “Air Bud:
World Pup” and “The Sandlot III” to name a few.

Alexander was most recently seen in the thriller “The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising,” starring alongside veteran actors Ian McShane, Frances Conroy and Wendy Crewson.

When not in school or on film sets, Alexander enjoys the outdoors. He spends his free time snow skiing at Whistler Mountain near his home in British Columbia, surfing, water skiing, playing tennis and ice hockey.

MADGA APANOWICZ signs to join the cast of new BATTLESTAR GALACTICA “prequel”, CAPRICA

Magda began acting at the age of 15 and has never looked back.

After appearing in numerous television series including The Bionic Woman and The L Word, she moved on to TV movies where most recently she starred as Brooke Preston in Hallmark’s Every Second Counts. Prior to the Caprica series Magda landed recurring roles in ABC Family Channel’s Kyle XY and on renegadepress.com, where she has twice been nominated for a Gemini award for her outstanding portrayal of Alex.

In her spare time you may find Magda on the slopes snowboarding or perhaps skydiving & bungee jumping off them! She will take a break from her daredevil activities when she joins the cast of Caprica, and shares the following story with you from the Pilot shoot…

While I was shooting Caprica, we taped for four days at the private room in the V-Club. The set was beautiful and quite elaborate and featured a liquid moat surrounding the entire room. But unfortunately I don’t think anyone gave the lighting a lot of thought. The moat was indistinguishable from the floor and just about everyone on the crew stepped into that thing at least once during our week there.  I always like to take things to a new level, however, so as we were about to shoot an important scene, I was still listening to my iPod as the AD slowly walked me through the room. He had been joking around about some stuff when all of a sudden I heard him yell, “Watch out”. I didn’t react quickly enough and walked straight into the moat, where I slipped and fell face first into the water… iPod, sound mike and all. I easily took top prize amongst the entire Caprica cast and crew for “Best Spill of the Week”.
