Alex Roe is not yet widely known but it's a safe bet the young British actor soon will be when The Fifth Wave, the movie in which he stars, is released. I hope he hits it big because he's a nice lad and apart from us both being from the same part of the world we have something else in common too.

When I chatted with him it transpired that he, like me and The Fifth Wave producer Graham King, is a lifelong supporter of Chelsea Football Club and is predicting another Premier championship next season.  "And a few more seasons after that too, I'm betting," he says. . 

   He was delighted I had a Chelsea F.C. magazine with me I could share with him

 The 25-year-old was born in Westminster and made his film debut as a possessed child in 2000's The Calling.

 In The Fifth Wave he plays Evan Walker, an alien who comes to the rescue of co-star Chloe Grace Moretz's Cassie, a girl trying to survive in a world devastated by an alien invasion that has knocked humankind  back tot he Stone Age.

  If that doesn't raise his profile enough, he has just been cast as the male lead in the third installment of Paramount's horror franchise Rings.
