When Thor hit cinemas in 2011, we didn’t know what to expect so we took a safe approach and featured Natalie Portman as our babe of the month back then.
After walking out of the cinema we were mesmerized by the wonder of an actress named Jaimie Alexander who played the warrior Sif. She’s got everything, height, looks and style, it’s no wonder she’s caught the attention of so many from all over the world. Some have even asked for a Sif solo movie just to see more of Jaimie.
Let’s get to know a little more about this girl from Texas.
Jaimie Alexander was born in Greenville, South Carolina, and moved to Grapevine, Texas when she was four years old. She is the only girl in a family of four boys. Alexander first got into acting in grade school, where she took theater for fun.
Alexander stated that she was actually kicked out of theater when she was in high school because she could not sing and went into sports. When she was 17, she substituted for a friend at a meeting with a scouting agency and she met her manager, Randy James, who sent her some scripts. After graduation, a year and a half later, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting
Her most famous part so far was that of ‘Jessi’ on the ABC Family television show Kyle XY. She portrays a troubled, show off girl with superhuman powers who is trying to find her way in the world, with increasing cooperation and eventual romance with her male counterpart Kyle. Her role generated a large fan base hoping to see a spin-off show for her character. She also has had guest roles on the show CSI: Miami where she played ‘Jenna York’, a flight attendant involved in a murder case; and in Bones where she played ‘Molly Briggs’, a student connected to the victim of the episode.
In September 2009, it was reported that Alexander would portray Sif in the live-action superhero film, Thor, directed by Kenneth Branagh and released in May 2011. She will reprise the role in the sequel Thor: The Dark World.
I have to say Sif is one of the favorite characters I’ve played. She’s probably closest to my personality out of everything I’ve done. She’s a butt-kicker and I like that!
