Alex "Al" Weaver is an English actor.

Weaver studied acting at Guildhall School of Music and Drama. His first paid theatre role was in Trevor Nunn's 2004 production of Hamlet, at the Old Vic theatre in London. Weaver played the Prince of Denmark on Monday evenings and at all matinees, whilst Ben Whishaw took on the role for evening performances, from Tuesday to Saturday.

British politician Michael Portillo lauded Weaver's interpretation of Hamlet in The New Statesman: "He gave meaning to the poetry, refusing to be rushed in the soliloquies or intimidated by them, varying volume and pace well. Frame by frame, he made credible Hamlet's progression from self-indulgence to nobility, so we could just about believe Fortinbras's remark that 'he was likely, had he been put on,/To have proved most royally'."

Weaver has appeared in films such as Colour Me Kubrick, The Merchant of Venice , Marie Antoinette ,"Unmade Beds" and played "The Kid" in Doom. His television credits include DC Billy Slaven in the Inspector Lynley Mysteries (episodes "In Pursuit of a Proper Sinner," and "A Cry for Justice"). His theatre credits include Meshak in the Royal National Theatre's 2006/2007 production of Coram Boy.
