Actress Jaimie Alexander’s natural beauty is enough to make anyone do a double take, but after the release of her recent high-profile film projects, people acknowledge her talent as well as her stunning looks. She appeared with Jake Gyllenhaal in Ed Zwick’s drama LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS, followed by Marvel’s blockbuster epic THOR. In it, she starred in the role of “Sif” opposite Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Sir Anthony Hopkins. She reprises her role in the upcoming sequel, THE DARK WORLD (Nov. ’13). Next on the horizon is crime drama LONDON FIELDS with the likes of Billy Bob Thornton and Amber Heard.
Alexander also attended the Toronto International Film Festival for the World premiere of the indie dramedy LOOSIES with Peter Facinelli and Joe Pantoliano; starred in the dramatic thriller INTERMISSION which screened at Cannes; completed work on the historical drama SAVANNAH (August ’13) with Jim Caviezel, Chiwetel Ejiofer, and Hal Holbrook, and most recently starred as the female lead opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in Lionsgate’s action/thriller THE LAST STAND.
She transitioned into such coveted film roles after her series regular status on the popular ABC Family Chanel series KYLE XY. Her enigmatic character “Jessi XX” proved to be a critical part of Kyle’s past and future. She returned to series television in a juicy arc as Edie Falco’s wild and immature sister-in-law on Showtime’s NURSE JACKIE.
Born in Greenville, South Carolina, and raised in Grapevine, Texas, Alexander moved west to Los Angeles upon graduating high school. She hasn’t looked back since.
