The red-hot Jaimie Alexander, 33, returns to television tonight for the mid-season premiere of NBC’s hit crime drama Blindspot. On the show, Alexander plays the lead role of Alice “Remi” Kruger aka “Jane Doe,” a woman whose tattoos are used to solve crimes for the F.B.I. Besides her role on Blindspot, Jaimie has secured prominent roles in TV shows such as Watch Over Me, Kyle XY, and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. She’s also well-known for her role in the 2011 film Thor and its 2013 sequel Thor: The Dark World.
Jaimie was born in Greenville, South Carolina, on March 12, 1984. When she was four-years-old, she moved to Grapevine, Texas. The young Jaimie took up acting for fun while in elementary school. However, she was kicked out of the acting scene in high school because she wasn’t able to sing well. After graduating from high school, she moved to Los Angeles with Hollywood dreams in her eyes.
Alexander’s acting career took off in 2006 after starring in an independent action thriller/horror film called The Other Side, which received very positive reviews from a majority of critics. For instance, David Walker of DVDTalk.com wrote that “By the nature of its horror genre roots, The Other Side may not appeal to some audiences,” but the film does balance itself out “and delivers enough entertainment that it truly deserves consideration. However, for die-hard fans of micro-budget independent films, as well as aspiring and established filmmakers, The Other Side verges on being required viewing, standing out as (a) movie that is entertaining, impressive, and most important, inspiring.”
Fans of the FXX show It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia might remember a younger Jaimie Alexander as Tammy in the third episode of the series, titled “Underage Drinking: A National Concern”. She played an 18-year-old high school senior who Dennis Reynolds attempted to apply the D.E.N.N.I.S. System on, but she was the one who was playing him. That was just classic Tammy; trying to get her ex-boyfriend Trey jealous by hooking up with Dennis. I think Charlie Kelly can explain it better…
Tonight, the 33-year-old star will return to television once more as Alice “Remi” Kruger aka “Jane Doe” on NBC’s Blindspot. But before you watch her in-action on your TV screen this evening, you can catch her in the COED gallery right now.
