Well-known for his remarkable work of displaying convincing characters in just about every genre, Alec Baldwin unmistakably is one of Hollywood's prominent actors whose talent has been widely acknowledged by both critics and audiences. Spending his early life along with his five siblings in Massapequa, Long Island, New York which is also the place he was born on April 3, 1958 as Alexander Rae Baldwin III, he basically has developed an interest in performing arts since he was still a little boy, and even had been involved in some stage productions of Massapequa High School where he studied at. However, this apparently could not exceed his fondness for law field for he later decided to take political science major at The George Washington University in Washington D.C. following his high school graduation and passed the next three years there.

It was in this place that he later met a casting assistant who saw his potentiality and suggested him to attend an audition for TV drama series of “The Doctors" (1963-1982) in which he wonderfully succeeded getting the role of Billy Allison Aldrich. Joined this NBC's soap opera for two years until its season finale, he then headed for Los Angeles in 1984 to star in CBS' primetime drama, “Knots Landing" (1979-1993) before performed in several TV-movie projects, namely “Love on the Run” (1985), “Dress Gray” (1986), and “The Alamo: Thirteen Days to Glory” (1987).
