The 20-year-old na­tive New Yorker has be­come a break-out star thanks to his lead role in Net­flix’s Emmy-nom­i­nated true­crime satire “Amer­i­can Van­dal,” which re­cently dropped its sea­son two trailer. Al­varez, whose cred­its in­clude story arcs on Net­flix’s “Or­ange Is the New Black” and on the Freeform se­ries “The Fosters,” has two in­de­pen­dent fea­tures cur­rently in post-pro­duc­tion: He has a star­ring role op­po­site Juno Tem­ple and Jane Levy in “The Pre­tenders,” di­rected by James Franco, and co-stars in the drama “John Henry” op­po­site Terry Crews and Lu­dacris. “I’d like to take on roles that chal­lenge me and en­cour­age me to ex­plore ar­eas within my­self,” he says.
