Alex Blue Davis is an American actor who is known for his role as Casey Parker in 14th season of Grey’s Anatomy. Here are some of the interesting facts about the star.
1.Alex is no stranger to acting
Alex’s role of Casey is not his first acting. In-fact he has appeared on several TV series like NCIS, Two Broke Girls, Newlywed and Broke, NCIS: Los Angeles and Grey’s Anatomy: B-Team. Grey’s spinoff B-Team is about new interns and their lives behind the scenes. Alex has also appeared in two short movies The Better Sister and Welcome to Camp Apotampkin.
2.He is really transgender.
In an interview with GLAAD, Krista Vernoff said that the casting department was in search of a transgender person to play the trans character. He was picked for the role due to his talents. In an interview Alex Blue Davis added:
TV is opening up a greater range of roles for trans character. Laverne played a lawyer on Doubt, and I’m playing a doctor — both roles haven’t really been seen before (for trans characters),” “People can see trans folks in a new light: these are people who walk among us and are human beings who have lives. They’re not defined by being trans.”
“What’s important for me to remember is there are opportunities out there where I don’t have to play trans,” Davis says. “I’m an actor. I love acting. I do love that I’m also representing a group of people who have been underrepresented, and that’s awesome. But being trans is not my identity; I identify as male. There are male roles out there that I want to play. And being an actor who happens to be trans, it’d be awesome if all those roles opened up for me because people see me and how I define myself.”
