Dora the Explorer Wiki

Alexandria Suarez (a/k/a Alex) is a child actress born in Englewood, New Jersey best known for being the voice of Backpack during Seasons 5-7 on the Dora the Explorer TV show. Alex is the proud recipient of a 2012 Young Artist Award in Hollywood and was ecstatic to walk the famous "orange" carpet at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards. Alex has worked in various Independent films, recently Thanks Dad, a TropFest (world`s largest short film festival) Finalist and one of the 8 Best films. At the tender age of six months, she booked her first job for a Tylenol ad. Her outgoing personality was already evident in a Parenting Magazine photo shoot, with her still toothless smile. Soon at the age of 3, Alex was singing, dancing and improvising in both English and Spanish for any audience that she could gather including imaginary children that listened to her sing. Alex soon aspired to do more than perform in her living room and began telling her mother that she wanted to be “on TV and in movies”. By the age of 5, Alex was booking films, videos and live theater performances.
