This month Alex and the creatives over at MEGAStyle help blur the lines between masculine and feminine through a genderless fashion shoot for their September 2021 cover.

In the article, Alex also dropped a big exclusive mentioning that he was cast to star in his first international movie titled "Glitter and Doom," playing Glitter.
"it is about a musician who wears a charisma’s camouflage and a carefree kid about to run away with the circus, they fall in love at first sight, but they only have a month to be with each other. It’s a fantastical summer romance told through the iconic music of the Indigo Girls. It’s super exciting and the music is actually being created by Michelle Chamuel, a finalist for The Voice Season 4, so the music sounds amazing,”"Alex Diaz in MEGAStyle Septmeber 2021

James Alexander Diaz McDermott is a Scottish-Filipino multi-talented online and TV personality. He is a singer, host, actor, dancer, model, indoor cycling instructor, and an in-demand endorser and online influencer.
In 2013, he went on to play different roles for shows like Got 2 Believe, Pangako Sa’ Yo and another Wattpad-derived movie, Just the Way You Are. Darker and more complex roles then came for Alexander in the form of villainous and challenging characters for drama anthology Ipaglaban Mo, which groomed him to take on a role in a coming-of-age drama series, Bagito, playing a vice-ridden teen in a relationship with a young mom. He was also part of the successful Philippine Indie film ‘Dagsin’. Not long after, he stepped into the world of music television with a stint as video jock of MYX Philippines, which seemed like a natural progression of his stint as radio jock years prior.
Skipping from ballad to breezy RnB-vibe sound, Alexander Diaz, sang his heart out through heart-mending lyrics about love and nostalgia. His acoustic-ballad debut off from Cornerstone Music ‘Dulo’ is a bitter-sweet glance on unrequited love. Followed by the RnB-inspired ‘Hide Away’— Alexander is really up to something great with the unique mixture of genres and styles.
