Five Things That You Didn’t Know About Alex Mallari Jr.

One television series that is rapidly becoming an explosive fan favorite is the sci-fi phenomenon, Dark Matter. The show is centered on a background that is actually lacking background. Basically, a crew of six shipmates wakes up at different times aboard a spacecraft called the Raza. Surprisingly, as each member of the crew awakens, they realize that they do not know who they are. In order to create some form of identity, the crew names themselves in the order that they awaken, with the first person who woke up being One, and the last being Six. The show is filled with drama and action, as the team attempt to discover who they are, while simultaneously attempting to find out how their memories were completely wiped out.

Actor, Alex Mallari Jr. plays the role of Four on the show, and while he is definitely a fan favorite, there is still a lot that you don’t know about him, so here are five things you didn’t know about Dark Matter’s Four, Alex Mallari Jr.

1. The Sword Fights Are Done with Lightweight Bamboo Replicas

One of the exciting things about this show is the awesome sword fights that Alex is always triumphant in. While these swords appear to be extremely heavy, they wield them with ease. Alex revealed the secret to how this is done. Apparently, all of the actual fight scenes are done with sword replicas that are actually made out of lightweight bamboo. That explains a lot.

The name of this new series is “Insomnia.” As of right now, Alex is not sure when this new series will air, nor is he certain what network will pick up the pilot, but at least he is staying busy. According to the actor, you have to get the work while the getting is good.

3. He Is a Fan of His Character

In Dark Matter, Four does not have a lot to say. When Mallari is asked about his character, he says that he has always been a fan of the silent deadly type of characters. It adds mystery to the show. While he admits it would nice to hear a little bit more from four, he doesn’t want it to be too much because it would take away from his character.

He loves the mystery associated with the character, and the fact that the character is so lethal, something he believes makes his character special.
