Ahead of the launching of new drama series Heels on STARZPLAY this weekend, we spoke to one of the show’s leading men, Alexander Ludwig. The Canadian actor talks about his role as a wrestler within this show, and what it was that appealed to him about getting involved. He also talks about ‘disliked’ on screen, and looks back over a career, with notable credits in the likes of Vikings and The Hunger Games.

Watch the full interview with Alexander Ludwig here:


“Heels” is a story about the men and women who chase their dreams in the world of small town pro wrestling. Set in a close-knit Georgia community, it follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers and rivals war over their late father’s legacy. In the ring, somebody must play the good guy and somebody must play their nemesis, the heel. But in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to – or hard to leave behind.
We are hoping to have time with Alexander Ludwig, Kelli Berglund (Animal Kingdom, The Goldbergs, Now Apocalypse) and Allison Luff (New Amsterdam, FBI). It would be great if you could let me know if you would be interested in having a chat with either of them.
Heels launches on STARZPLAY on August 15th
