Alessandro Egger is a model and actor born in Belgrade in 1991. At the age of six he escapes the war and moves with his family to Italy, where his mother already works. He moved to Como, then moved permanently to Milan. In Milan, at the age of 13, Egger began to work as a model and, among other things, to lend himself an advertising spot for Kinder bars. Two years later, he made his television debut in The Band, a sitcom that aired between 2008 and 2009; this role introduced Egger to the Italian public, who devoted himself to studies even after the show ended.
After returning to acting in 2014, he appeared as a guest star on the series Doctor in the Family and quickly found another job. He is applying for a position at Versace and is hired as a model. This fortuitous and fruitful career led him to become one of the well-known faces of the Dolce & Gabbana brand and the cover man of magazines such as Men’s Health. Later he devoted himself mainly to the catwalks, but he also appeared in Shades of Truth (2015), an investigative film that investigates the true nature of Pope Pius XII’s relations with Germany. In this first cinematic experience and in a minor role, Egger shares the scene with great actors such as Giancarlo Giannini and Christopher Lambert.
Two years after his first appearance on television, Egger again appeared as a contestant on the Beijing Express reality show. This time he is chosen to participate, although his experience of him proves short. After another break dedicated to high fashion, Egger reappeared on the big screen in 2021, this time in an international production. He starred in House of Gucci, Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated film with Lady Gaga and Adam Driver. Other well-known names in the cast include Jared Leto, Jeremy Irons, Al Pacino, and Salma Hayek. The model’s latest television projects include her participation in Milly Carlucci’s talent show Dancing with the Stars. Here Egger is joined by the Swedish-born dancer Tove Villfor.
Since about 2017, the model Madalina Doroftei has been linked to Alessandro Egger. During an interview with DiLei (2020), she described him as “a companion who is also my best friend, my muse, my confidant”. In House of Gucci, Egger plays a professional fashion blogger. During an interview with RTL 102.5 (2021), she Doroftei said she briefly had the opportunity to speak with director Ridley Scott on set. Some of the main actors were hardly reached: some were absent because they didn’t have to act at the time, Lady Gaga; others were totally immersed in their characters, like Adam Driver.
Who was Alessandro Egger in a couple with at the Beijing Express?
The Beijing Express challenges were faced by Alessandro Egger in the company of his mother, Cristina Vittoria Egger Bertotti, in the world of luxury with the nickname of “Grand Dame of the Royal House of Savoy”. After starting her career in the industry as an assistant in Gianni Versace’s showroom, she is now a PR specialist, consultant and talent scout for emerging designers. During the quarantine period dictated by the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, Alessandro Eggar approached the world of Drag Queens and ended up creating his alter ego: Alexandra. The inspiration came by chance during a Tik Tok challenge made with his partner, and then Egger decided to continue with the help of Madalina Doroftei herself.
