Per his IMDB bio, Alexander was inspired to start acting after being influenced by his younger brother, Edward Molony, who is also involved in the entertainment industry. His parents allowed him to begin working as a voice actor, specifically in the role of Claude for Disney Junior, before moving on to live theatre roles. Alexander appears to be very close to his brother, and the siblings celebrate "Winnie the Pooh" Day annually.

Peter Pan & Wendy is Alexander's first feature film, but it surely won't be his last. Maybe one day, he and Edward will collaborate on the big screen!
