You haven’t seen Jaimie Alexander at her best if you are yet to watch her portrayal of Jessi, the troubled girl with superpowers on the ABC Family television show Kyle XY; Sif in the superhero film, Thor, as well as its sequel – Thor: The Dark World; and Jane Doe in the NBC series Blindspot, a role she picked up in 2015 and is still on.
For one thing, Jaimie is quite good with strong and tough characters which might have something to do with the fact that she grew up surrounded by four boys as her siblings.
Jaimie Alexander’s Biography
The American actress was born on March 12, 1984. The Greenville, South Carolina-born beauty spent just a few years in her place of birth after which she relocated with her family to Grapevine, Texas, at the age of four. In grade school, she started showing great potentials in acting but sucked so much in the theater that she was given the boot in high school because she was unable to sing. She later finished her academic requirements at Colleyville Heritage High School and took to Los Angeles for her acting career.
She finally got her chance as a professional actress in 2003 in the leading role of Hanna Thompson in the film The Other Side. She got the role by chance as she was just helping out at the audition when the director saw she was perfect for the role.
The Other Side opened the door for other roles with Squirrel Trap coming in as the second movie she appeared in, portraying Sara. She then made a guest appearance in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and in an episode of Standoff.
Soon, Jaimie Alexander started getting more prominent parts, appearing in Watch Over Me (2006–07 series) in a leading role as Caitlin Porter. She also landed her first lead role in a 2006 horror film Rest Stop. Another lead role in a horror film came in 2007 when she played the character of Elizabeth Chambers in Hallowed Ground.
From 2007 to 2009, Jaimie Alexander played her most popular roles in both film and TV series so far. Depicting the character of Jessi Hollander on the ABC Family’s Kyle XY earned her a massive fan base and before the end of the show, another big break came knocking. She was cast as Sif in the live-action superhero film, Thor, in September 2009, but the blockbuster was released in May 2011 to rave reviews, thus, a reprisal of her role in the sequel Thor: The Dark World, didn’t come as a surprise at all.
In 2010, Jaimie Alexander was cast in both comedy-drama film, Loosies and Nurse Jackie and the next year, she appeared in three episodes of Covert Affairs season two.
Since her debut as a professional actress, Jaimie Alexander has accrued over 30 films and series under her belt. One of her most recent appearances is as Jane Doe in Blindspot. She has been on the NBC series since 2015.
Who Is Her Husband Or Boyfriend?
Jaimie Alexander has been engaged twice before but never made it to the altar with anyone. She was first engaged to actor Milo Ventimiglia in 2012 after which she went into a relationship with actor Peter Facinelli in the same year her previous engagement ended.

Soon afterward, it emerged that Airon Armstrong is the man in Jaimie’s life. The actress started dating the stunt performer in September 2016.
