Where are Alex and Marcus Lewis Now in 2019?
Alex and Marcus Lewis published a book in 2013 with Joana Hodgkin about their experience called Tell Me Who I Am but Alex did not get the full truth about their upbringing until they filmed the documentary.
As they mentioned in the documentary, they are both married with two kids each who are around the same age. Marcus' children are 10 and 12 and Alex's children are 9 and 13, according to Decider.
“We live very fulfilled lives. We’re busy in our jobs, we run our company together, and we run everything together that we do—always have," Alex told Decider.
The brothers run a luxury resort called Fundu Lagoon off the coast of East Africa, on Pemba Island. However, England is still home base for both of them. Marcus lives in London and Alex lives just outside of the capital city.
In the interview with Decider, Marcus revealed that the documentary's release on Netflix made them "quite nervous".
“We were nervous at first. But we’re starting to be quite proud. We don’t feel we’ve made a movie about sexual abuse—we hope we haven’t anyway. We think we made a movie about love.”
Audiences have found the documentary deeply moving and heartbreaking.

“Tell Me Who I Am” on Netflix is one of the most bizarre and emotionally impactful stories I’ve ever seen. Made it to the end and I think I’m changed forever. Never had my heart completely broken and healed again in the space of 90 mins. 📹#tellmewhoiam— Amy Mallett (@amy_mallett) October 20, 2019
