Although Colin Hanks made his professional acting debut in "Roswell", he is no stranger to Hollywood. As the son of academy award winning actor, Tom Hanks, one might say acting is second nature to him.
Hanks grew up in Sacramento, and attended Loyola Marymount University where he appeared in many school productions such as "Noises Off!"
While "Roswell" keeps him busy, Hanks has also found time to launch his on-screen career. He recently completed production on the upcoming feature "I'll Be You", a high school version of "Cyrano de Bergerac" in which he plays a character named "Cosmo."
Hanks currently lives in Los Angeles, where he continues to devote most of his time to "Roswell."
Best friend to both Liz and Maria. Alex is sweet, caring and funny (he also provides comic relief for the show) but might be considered a borderline nerd. His sense of humor and musical ability (plays guitar in his own alternative rock band) keep him from crossing that line but he's not quite sophisticated enough to be part of the "in" crowd. Due to his interrogatory nature, his career placement profile indicates he should be a psychologist. He worships Isabel, would do anything for her and is very understanding of the "weird" nature of their relationship. He is not yet aware of Isabel's purpose in life, but would accept any decision she makes and stand by her as a friend regardless.
