Nicole Forbis ran into former True Blood actor Kevin Alejandro at the Custo Barcelona fashion show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC and got an exclusive interview about fashion, surprising his wife on her birthday and some breaking news about a new show!
Nicole: Why did you come to Fashion Week?
Alejandro: My wife is the Editor of a magazine called BelloMag and she actually piqued my interest in it. I didn’t know anything about fashion and I still don’t, but the little I do is because of her and it happens to be her 40th birthday and she’s out here working. So I flew out here to surprise her and be a part of this insane craziness that is going on.
Nicole: So, how did you surprise her?
Alejandro: Well, first of all, I told her that I wasn’t going to be able to make it, and I flew in from LA, I took a redeye. She had no idea. She was so upset with me the whole time [because] I wasn’t going to be able to make it for her birthday. So I went to the apartment she was staying in, knocked on the door, had some flowers in my hand, and said (in a thick Brooklyn accent) “Hey, I’ve got some flowers for you, delivery.” And she opened up the door and was [so excited].
Nicole: That’s awesome! So, you look very well put together today, who are you wearing?
Alejandro: Thank you! Well, a bunch of stuff, from Hugo Boss, to Paul Smith, to Reese.
Nicole: So is this something you went out and bought or did your wife buy it?
Alejandro: This is something that I’ve had, but yeah, pretty much my wife dresses me. She’ll be like, ‘this will look good on you, wear it Sunday.’
Nicole: What do you have coming up?
Alejandro: I’m currently working on a show called Arrow for the CW, I’ll be heading back to Vancouver next week to shoot a few more episodes. And there’s some other stuff coming out, there will be some news released, but I can’t talk about it yet.
So, what was that big news? Alejandro has signed on to the brand new ABC show Clementine about a psychic of the same name as one of the lead roles. Alejandro will play the main character’s ex-boyfriend and the father of her daughter Charlie Madsen. Exciting, right!
