Roe's grandfather grew up in Ladbroke-Grove and devoted most of his life to sporting events at fairs. He performed and boxed for the amusement of the public. This is probably why Alex's father did not like creative professions and believed that his son should be trained for a "man's" job.
By the age of ten, the boy was on a semi-professional football team. As Roe himself later admitted in an interview, he did not dream of becoming a professional football player, because there was a lot of competition in this sport. However, he did not concentrate only on games. When he was in school, Alex participated in school productions, and on one of them, he was noticed by Jennifer Saunders, known as an actress, screenwriter, comedian, and singer.
The woman attended the play as a spectator, because then on the same stage with Alex was her daughter Freya. She admired Roe's acting and invited him to an audition for Jam and Jerusalem. As the actor admits, it was with this comedy that his real acting career began.
