Alfie Enoch was born in England in 1988, and had decided by the time he was five that he wanted to follow in his father's footsteps, and be an actor. Famous for his role in the original "Dr. Who" (BBC, 1963-), William Russell (Enoch's father) worked regularly on the stage and on screen. Young Alfie was inspired by the passion and joy his father took from and gave to his craft, and that inspiration was quickly engaged. In 2001, Enoch made his first on screen appearance as Dean Thomas in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." Dean was a member of House Gryffindor the same year as Harry Potter and they room together throughout Harry's adventures in the internationally bestselling books as well as the filmed adaptations. He takes part in some of Harry's schemes and is something of a rival for the affections of Ginny Weasley, although he remains a constant ally to Harry and Dumbledore. Enoch appeared in all of the Harry Potter films except for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1" (2010). After the final Harry Potter film was released in 2011, Enoch spent much of his time onstage, appearing in the National Theater Live satellite broadcasts of "Timon of Athens" and "Coriolanus" and played supporting parts on the British TV series "Broadchurch" (ITV 2013), "Mount Pleasant" (Sky1 2011-), and "Sherlock" (BBC 2010-). In 2014, he began the role of Wes Gibbons, an associate to Annalise Keating, played by Viola Davis in the drama "How to Get Away with Murder" (ABC 2014-), created by Shonda Rimes.
