Adrian Louis Alandy (born February 7, 1980 in Manila, Philippines), better known as Luis Alandy is a Filipino actor and model. Alandy started his career as a model. He first appeared in a print magazine and was soon discovered to do acting. He landed his first acting role in the popular TV series Pangako sa 'yo (2000) as David.
Alandy completed an intensive course in computer at AMA Computer College-East Rizal (Philippines). He then studied psychology at San Sebastian College, but dropped out in his third year to try his luck in show business. "I love the hardships of acting," Luis said when asked what attracted him to becoming an actor.
Luis Alandy started out as a GMA7 Talent but when he realized that his career wasn’t going anywhere, he left his home network and transferred to ABS-CBN. This proved to be a good move on his part because he has since then appeared in several soap operas and started to become a household name and a recognizable matinee idol.
He has appeared in several TV series in the Philippines, including "Sana'y wala ng wakas" (2003), "Vietnam Rose" (2005) and "Gulong ng palad" (2005) to name a few. He has recently starred in a number of box-office movies like Pacquiao: The Movie (2006) and Barcelona (2006).
Alandy buffed up his body for Bench underwear fashion shows, and for the musical revue "Penis Talks" (2004).
He confessed that in his eight years in show- business, he experienced being at the bottom of the wheel. He remembered contemplating if he will land TV or movie projects because of competition becoming stiffer with the emergence of newer actors.
He was a member of the all-male macho group Barako Boys (with the award-winning actor Jay Manalo, Christian Vasquez, Carlo Maceda, Reggie Curley, and Paolo Paraiso). The group has released a musical album.
He had switched from ABS-CBN to GMA Network. He appeared in his two primetime shows of GMA. Dyesebel is considered as Alandy's biggest break.
After Dyesebel, Alandy starred in primetime show Luna Mystika. After Luna mystika, he starred in the action thriller Sine Novela: Ngayon At Kailanman where he plays the most villainous role ever.
