RISING star Alex Russell is back on the big screen this week.

The Rockhampton local has a part as bad boy Billy Nolan in the movie remake of horror classic Carrie.

Alex is playing the same part which John Travolta played in the 1976 version, being Travolta's first major feature film.

Alex got the chance to act alongside Hollywood girl Chloe Grace Moretz who plays Carrie in the film.

The 25-year-old is keeping busy in the world of acting, having previously landed parts in the movies Chronicle and Twilight author Stephenie Meyer's The Host.
