Alex Blanco: Playing Michael Jackson in front of his brothers was very special

Alex White It’s MICHAEL JACKSON…

No, I’m always Alex. You always have to be humble, like an actor, when I’m in character I’m the character, but when I’m out I’m Alex Blanco… (And smile)

That is why we are going to explain this kind of Alex-Michael game.

We have chosen you and you are going to debut with Jermaine Jackson present… emotionally it was a spectacular high

When you’re watching the show FOREVER. KING OF POP, dedicated to the figure of Michael Jackson, there are six singers who perform his songs, but only one person who dances them. And that person is the IMPERSONATOR, the “official” Michael Jackson impersonator, and he is Alex Blanco…

With Alex we talked about the show that can be seen in the Latin TheaterMadrid, until November 6, the only one endorsed by the Jackson family…

He has become the official impersonator of the little Jackson due to a clash with classmates where he was studying…

It was a pique that there was in high school, because they told me to learn to do the moonwalk, that step of going backwards sliding. I wanted to learn it but it went wrong, so they kept telling me that I was never going to do it and I decided to get it and I assured them that I was going to be able to dance like him, that’s more or less how it was.

And as an anecdote I can tell you that I went to see this show in 2010, which was the year it started, and I was fourteen years old and that motivated me to want to improve and I told myself that I wanted to be on that stage one day. And I started to practice and train and I kept improving, until today, what a coincidence! Here I am, destiny.

One day they call him for the casting, it was around 2017…

At the end of that year, if I’m not mistaken, the casting was held in October, but it took a few months for them to call me. Do you know when you go to a casting and they tell you we’ll call you? They don’t tell you yes or no, you’re left with doubts, you’re nervous, I thought I’d done something wrong and I thought they weren’t going to call me anymore, but no, three months later they tell me I’m in, they wanted to tell me with me and also confirming that the premiere was going to be with Jermaine Jackson present. Imagine all that, the news that we have chosen you and you are also going to debut with Michael Jackson’s brother… emotionally it was a spectacular high.

La Toya has said that: “Not only is it a great show, but my brother’s heart is on stage. I would like to see this show on Broadway.”

Have you met all the members of the Jackson family who have come to see this show?

To Jermaine Jackson who came to the premiere, to La Toya who has also come. The father of the Jacksons has also come, it was in 2011, but then I wasn’t in the cast, but the two I met, Jermaine and La Toya, super dedicated, La Toya thanked me, with teary eyes, you could tell she was coming excited… It’s just that it’s very special to think that you’re playing the brother of that family and to see that they feel so grateful, because not everyone can have the luck of playing in front of the family… it really is very special.

How long have you been doing this role?

Personally, I’ve been here for more than 10 years, precisely since 2009-2010, which is when the boom in the death of Michael Jackson began and many media outlets began to release documentaries… I wanted to get information and all that, so I’ve been here for more than 10 years.

For me it is not a job, I do it from the heart, I have enormous respect for Michael Jackson

oday they told me why I didn’t try to portray myself as Michael Jackson and then I tried to do it. And it’s all makeup, I don’t have any kind of surgeries or anything like that, it’s just makeup.

You’re a singer too…

Sing I sing, but not in this show…

But you do your first steps out of here…

Yes, yes… (laughs) I have my youtuber facet. On stage I am Michael Jackson, it is my specialty, to dress up and dance like him, but off stage I have my social networks, YouTube, I do video game tutorials, I am involved in that world.

Until when are you going to play Michael Jackson?

Me? Until she can not with the body. This is something that I enjoy, for me it is not a job, I do it from the heart, I have enormous respect for Michael Jackson, he seems to me an artist who transformed an entire generation of artists. Now you see Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, you see that his influence is there, and it shows. And when I’m on stage I always have a good time, I end up exhausted after a show, but I have a good time…

You never take vacations…

He smiles and says that…

I don’t have any type of surgeries or anything like that, it’s just makeup

Sometimes, when there are a few days with nothing, a week, it depends…

Are you the only one who plays Michael Jackson as a dancer?

There are 10 dancers, but I’m the only one who interprets that figure…

What if you get injured, because that rhythm you have is very hard?

If that happens, they have a person just in case…

But let’s hope that doesn’t happen and that Alex Blanco continues enjoying and enjoying that Michael Jackson FOREVER KING OF POP.
