If he had fulfilled his parents’ wish for him, Alexander Dreymon would have been active in the medical field, but he found another way of life and it seemed to pay off. He is most popular for his portrayal of Uhtred of Bebbanburg in The Last Kingdom, which was shown on BBC Two.
He is a German-born actor who has been a credit to many theatre productions in Europe, including Mustard at London’s Soho Theatre and Angels in America at Paris’ Théâtre du Marais. One of his most talked-about roles can be seen in the British film Christopher and His Kind, in which he played a gay character alongside Matt Smith. Due to the nature of some of the characters he portrayed, various speculations about his sexuality have arisen, which are explored in more detail in this article.
Alexander Dreymon’s Bio
The good-looking actor got the name Alexander Dötsch when he was born on February 7th, 1983 in Germany. Due to the frequent movement of his mother, Alexander grew up in many places, including the United States, Germany, and Switzerland. During his stay in the United States, he lived in San Francisco and South Dakota. He also spent time in France after his mother had to move there to take care of his aunt who had a riding accident.
Alexander Dreymon’s father is not constant in his life, but the relationship between the two is not strained.
Dreymon received his education in Paris and although his parents wanted him to pursue a career in medicine, he grew up knowing that he wanted to become an actor. So he refined his skills at the Drama Centre London for a period of three years. In addition, he trained in martial arts, and during his stay in South Dakota, Dreymon took the opportunity to learn to ride. Perhaps as a result of his travels to various countries, Alexander Draymond speaks fluent English, French, and German.
The good-looking actor has penetrated the hearts of many people with his good looks and the talent he uses in casting each role. After several stage appearances in London and Paris Dreymon made his screen debut in the French single drama Ni reprise, ni échangée. His career gradually made progress and moved into the limelight after his engagement in the British film Christopher and His Kind (2011), in which he appeared as Caspar, the lover of Doctor Who’s Matt Smith.
He then took roles in many short films while exploring the entertainment industry in the USA. He then appeared in five episodes of American Horror Story: Coven – season three, as Luke Ramsey.
Most recently, he appeared on the BBC Two-Show The Last Kingdom, where he brought the character of Uhtred von Bebbanburg to life. The show debuted on 10 October 2015 and has built up an impressive fan base.

Is Alexander Dreymon Gay? Wife/Partner
Due to the fact that the good-looking actor has portrayed some gay characters, we have to say excellently that many rumors about his sexual orientation have made the rounds. After his role in “Christopher and His Kind” many believed that he must be gay, but nonetheless, there is no concrete confirmation for these allegations, as he didn’t turn out to be gay. Moreover, he also played many roles as hetero and is said to have had a romantic relationship with the Greek actress Tonia Sotiropoulou.
His 2015 commentary on his type of women – “most of my girlfriends are actually French because I grew up in France for quite a while” – is also proof that he is not gay. However, it is assumed that he is single and has never been married to anyone.
