Bauer is 36 years old in 2022. Likewise, he was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. As for his education, no official details of his schooling are revealed at the moment.

Bauer’s Ethnic Backgrounds

Alexander has mixed ancestry. He is Jewish from his father’s side and has English, Irish, Welsh, Scottish, as well as Scots-Irish/Northern Irish ancestry.

Bauer Has Three Half Siblings

Though the film performer is his parent’s only child, he grew up alongside his three half-siblings, Stella Banderas b. in Marbella, Spain, Dylan Bauer, and none other than actress Dakota Johnson.

Bauer’s sister Stella Banderas is from his mother’s marriage with Antonio Bandera, Dakota is from Melanie and Don Johnson‘s marriage, likewise, Dylan is from his father’s marriage with Ingrid Anderson.

Alexander Bauer’s Half-Sister Stella Dropped Her Mother’s Surname

Born on 24th September 1996, Stella Del Carmen Banderas Griffith is 26 years old in 2022. As per Banderas’ IG, she is the founder of Lightbound Studio. Likewise, she has also created her own perfume as well.

Unlike her brothers, Stella has made a name for herself in the industry. And it is of no surprise that her success can be credited to her parent’s name. However, things took a new turn when Stella Del Carmen announced to drop her mother’s surname ‘Griffith’.

Back in 2021, the then 25-year-old even filed a name change petition asking a judge to remove Griffith in a Los Angeles court. And absurdly, she reasoned her name change writing “to shorten my name by removing the extra last name”.

She further added,

“As well, I typically do not use “Griffith” when referring to myself or on documents so, dropping the name would match my regular use.”

Although the petition raised a few eyebrows regarding the mother-daughter relationship, it appears that there’s no such issue and Carmen simply wants to shorten her name.

Alexander Bauer Is An Actor & Businessman

The 36-year-old star kid is an actor and reportedly a businessman by profession. He made his cinematographic debut with the short comedy video Kazoos on First? in 2013.

Two years later, he landed his debut acting role as a sidekick in the 2015 comedy-drama film This Loneliness starring Corey Smith, Breann Thorne, C.B. Jacobson, and others.

Despite having a family background of actors, Alexander didn’t make a name for himself in the industry. Instead, he works behind the camera.

As per his IMDB profile, he has a second assistant cameraman credit for his name for This Loneliness and Holding. Apart from this, not much about his current profession is known to the public.
