Alexander Polinsky is a TV actor best known for his role in the 80’s sitcom Charles in Charge.
Polinski is a California native who was born on October 7, 1974. He was the youngest actor on the set of Cahrles in Charge which ran for five seasons and where he played the role of Adam Powell. He’s also made TV, voice, and movie appearances.
In light of the Scott Baio accusations, Polinsky has also joined co-star Nicole Eggert in revealing that he was also a victim. According to reports Alexander has come forwards saying:
“Working on the set of ‘Charles in Charge’ from age 11 to 15 was no picnic. It was a toxic environment. I witnessed Scott Baio acting inappropriately towards Nicole Eggert during my first year of working on the show. I walked in on them together behind the set. Nicole was on Scott’s lap and he did not appreciate my intrusion. He yelled at me and called me various homophobic slurs.”
Polinsky also accompanied Nicole in filing a police report against Baio, earlier this week.
Following the end of Charles in Charge, Alexander Polinsky trained to be a master mold maker with a special-effects company and got a job working as a mold-maker at a movie prop design studio. He was overweight for a while –which kept him from getting work as an actor. He was also diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder at age 6 and spent many years in therapy.
Additionally he’s kept busy doing voice-overs for cartoons and commercials including a starring role in the animated series, Roughnecks: The Starship Troopers Chronicles (1999), as well as appearing in episodes of The Simpsons (1989), Teen Titans (2003) and Spider-Man (2003). Film roles include Saints and Soldiers.
The Emmy winning actor is apparently single and has never been married.
