Mark Alexander Knox was born April 15, 1970, in Nyc.
Alexander started dancing in New York nightclubs during his teen years. His lively dancing style earned him the nickname “Flex” and brought the interest of DJ Spinderella. When Spinderella started touring together with the trio Salt n Pepa, Alexander joined the tour to get an interval of 3 years.
In the late 1980s, Alexander branched out into acting along with dancing and choreographing. He started performing stand-up comedy and sought out movie parts, appearing in the 1992 movie Juice.
Alexander also started appearing on television programs in the 1990s. He also guest starred on the favorite shows Sister, Sister and The Cosby Mysteries.
One on One stayed on the air for several additional seasons, although Anderson’s character was phased out over time.
After leaving One on One, Alexander returned to playing in motion pictures. He impersonated Michael Jackson in a TV biopic, earning another NAACP Image Award Nomination. Since that time, he’s appeared in the 2006 movie Snakes on a Plane, the 2007 horror movie The Hills Have Eyes 2 and Clement Virgo’s Poor Boy’s Game. He’s also continued to produce TV appearances in a gueststar capacity.
Alexander is a born-again Christian who’s intensely devoted to his religion. He’s been married to R&B singer Shanice Wilson since 2000 (they wed on Valentine’s Day). The couple got two children: daughter Imani Shekinah Alexander-Knox, produced in 2001, and son Elijah Alexander-Knox, produced in 2004.
