Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

Alex Winter (born July 17, 1965) is an actor, director and film writer, originally from Great Britain but raised in the USA. He is perhaps most recognizable as the blonde-haired, air-guitar-playing Bill S. Preston, esq. from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.

Born in London, England, Alex Winter trained as a dancer as a child, that being the profession of his parents. His family then relocated to Missouri. He studied Film at college in New York City and starred in a number of plays whilst still a student.

His first major role as an actor was in the cult vampire movie The Lost Boys in 1987 when he was aged twenty-two. Two years later he starred with Keanu Reeves in the comedy Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. He reprised his role in the sequel Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey. He also provided the voice for one of the animated television series spin-offs, as did Reeves.

Alex Winter has mainly worked behind the scenes in film since his role in the Bill & Ted movies. In 1993 he co-wrote and co-directed the comedy Freaked, and six-years later he wrote and directed Fever. Additionally he has directed music videos and television commercials.

He is married with a son and works in both his native Britain as well as the USA.
