Biography

Early on, Alec Newman's career path seemed leading towards that of a football player ("soccer" to United States citizens). But this was exchanged for a career in acting, when he enrolled in London's National Youth Theatre as a teenager. The late 1990s saw Newman receive his first television acting roles, including brief spots on such popular U.K. shows as "Taggart", "Peak Practice", and "Dangerfield". By the early 21st century, Newman had begun carving his niche as an in-demand actor for primarily science fiction-based television roles, including the role of Muad'Dib on both "Dune" and "Children of Dune", as well as Malik on "Star Trek: Enterprise". Subsequently, Newman has taken other non-sci fi roles as well, most notably on the television series "Hope Springs" and "Silent Witness", plus the movies "Blackwater" and "Moonlight Serenade".
