Lord John Sterling, Earl of Kilmartin, played by rising English actor Victor Alli, was a surprise until the series’ release in May 2024. For Bridgerton season 3, he even had to lie to his close friends.

Alli mentioned that he had kept his role a secret for almost two years as he knew about it in 2022.

When his friends caught photographs of the actor with Hannah Dodd on online forums, they asked him, to which he vehemently lied, saying the person looked exactly like him.

Now, with the season 3 release of the most anticipated period drama, Bridgerton, Victor Alli is getting recognition as one of the most gentle-faced and attractive-voiced actors.

Victor Alli is a 29 year-old actor who has been involved in acting since 2014, at the age of 19.

Some filmography credits of Victor Alli are Death on the Nile, The Man Who Fell To Earth, The Line, and Belfast, his breakthrough coming-of-age drama.

Victor Alli comes from a creative Nigerian family with a musician sister and a graphic designer brother

Victor Alli, recognized for his role as John Stirling in Bridgerton, was born on June 4, 1995, to Nigerian descent parents in Lambeth, London.

His parents moved to London and married in 1992, so Alli calls East London his home. Alli’s father is a music lover and has the craziest record collection worldwide. Yet their name is mysterious to all.

The rising star never mentioned them except once, in an interview with Tatler, where he said that his mother did not know about Bridgerton until he got the role. This statement clearly shows that Victor Alli’s family is down to earth.

Also, a Facebook post indicates that his mother runs Mama’s Best, a London restaurant offering West African dishes, but he has not officially confirmed it.

Meanwhile, Alli mentioned having two siblings: a sister, Ofuré Faith, and a brother whose name has not been revealed.

Ofuré Faith is a musician and lead vocalist on the self-titled band Ofuré, per the band’s Facebook page, but it seems to have been inactive since 2017, so her current endeavor remains hidden.

Alli also mentioned that his brother was a graphic designer who has transitioned into being a footballer recently but did not share further details.

The actor calls himself the drama queen of the family. He accidentally fell in love with acting while he was a musician after his teacher used him as a replacement for an absent lead during a play, which led him to join The BRIT School.
