Thirst Trap Thursday: Alex Landi

Just what the doctor ordered

26 year-old Grey’s Anatomy breakout star Alex Landi has quickly replaced Patrick Dempsey as the ABC hit show’s resident McDreamy when he was introduced in the show’s fifteenth season. The New York-native of Korean and Italian descent plays Dr Nico Kim on the television series, and even has a steamy onscreen romance with his co-star Jake Borelli (Dr Levi Schmidt).

On the surface, Landi has everything going for him—a recurring role on Shonda Rhime’s hit television series, a chiseled physique and smoldering eyes that could stop any woman (or man) in their tracks. But there’s more to him than his beguiling looks. In a previous interview with an American publication, Landi talked about the intersectionality of his role—a gay Asian-American who’s out and proud on a successful television drama— and the significance of it; something he hopes his fans would also focus on.

Prior to his television debut, Landi was enrolled at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York. He’s also an expert in martial arts, which explains his Adonis-like physique.

Every television hottie (think KJ Apa, Gavin Leatherwood and Charles Melton) have a few recurring themes on their Instagram: Shirtless pictures, (more) shirtless pictures of them exercising, and (yes, more) shirtless pictures of them in nature—as is their prerogative. What sets Landi apart from the aforementioned hotties is that he pulls us in with his uber cute and attractive relationship with his equally adorable chihuahua. 

As if we didn’t already have enough reasons to fall in love with Landi, he’s a Libra. Which means he’s romantic, loyal, attentive and extremely patient—traits anyone would fall in love with.
