With Thor giving Fast and Furious 5 a panel beating at the global box office, what better time to look back on my chat with one of the films stars; Jaimie Alexander. The US actress is becoming a bit of a genre superstar, getting her start in horror flicks such as Rest Stop, Hallowed Ground and The Other Side before heading over into equally fanatic fan territory with sci-fi work in cult show Kyle XY and now Thor. But Alexander hasn’t forgotten her roots and the starlet was more than happy to give the horror genre the kudos it deserves. She also didn’t rule out a return to scare-fests, once she finishes up work on dramas Loosies and Savannah that is. Here’s what she had to say:
“They’re almost superheroish characters and the leads in the films…they’re looking for someone to carry that. It’s a good starting ground and because they’re made for not a lot of money, they take a risk on actors without much on their resumes. I never say never and if I thought the script was decent, then I’d say yeah (to being in another horror).”
There you have it. To read my exclusive chat with Alexander where we talk girl power, body image and she-warriors click here. For my Thor review, here, and the best Thor poster you will ever see, here.
