Jaimie Alexander and Rodrigo Santoro in Lionsgate's 'The Last Stand'
If Jaimie Alexander has somehow flown under your radar thus far, you might want to get a new radar.
Yes, Alexander's awfully nice to look at, but that's not the only reason to keep an eye on the rising star; she's also well on her way to becoming a bona fide action hero.
Alexander is probably best known for playing Lady Sif in Marvel's "Thor," a role she'll be regally reprising in "Thor: The Dark World," which debuts this November.
And with her recent gig playing opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Governator's big comeback film, "The Last Stand," Alexander certainly pumped up her action resume. Alexander plays Sarah Torrance, a small-town police officer who stands shoulder to shoulder with grizzled Chief Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) and a ragtag host of deputies (including Luis Guzman and Johnny Knoxville) to fend off a drug kingpin trying to shoot his way across the Mexican border. It's an old-school, good vs bad action flick, and Alexander more than holds her own.
While promoting this week's home entertainment release of "The Last Stand," Alexander spoke with us over the phone. Besides chatting about why the film got a bum rap and what it's like to shoot an action flick with Arnold, Alexander also spoke candidly about what we can expect from Lady Sif in the next "Thor," how her high school wrestling days prepared her for action, and whether or not she can beat up her boyfriend, "Twilight" star Peter Facinelli.Read More »from Jaimie Alexander Talks ‘The Last Stand,’ ‘Thor’ 2, & Her High School Wrestling Days
