Alex Mendoza


I discovered Alex while watching Xena: The Warrior Princess.

Alex (aka Zeus) also belongs to the Los Angeles-based band Simpleworld. He is the lead singer and plays guiter. With the band, his name is Zeus. The other members are actor Michael Trucco and Alex's college buddies Kevin McMahon, Christian Lipski, and "M." I found a nice picture of the band on Christian Lipski's Flickr page. I can't find much on the band, so I'm not certain it's still together.


For a complete list of his roles, visit Alex's IMDB page.

Unfortunately, my local station doesn't show this soap. It figures that he would be off the show when I finally get the Soap Channel and could've watched!
