A beautiful photoshoot that was realized in New York and that highlights the beauty of Jaimie ! Find below a part of Jaimie’s interview. + HQ Pictures are available in the gallery.
“I can say my life was rough. And I wouldn’t trade. I’ve gotten to a point where I like who I am. And I don’t think any of that would’ve been possible if I hadn’t gone through what I’ve been through.”
Jaimie Alexander is crushing it. “I’m just gonna be what I want to be. And look how I want to look. And not worry about trying to one up somebody. It’s too exhausting.” Crushing “it,” and a few dumb beauty standards along with it. Tons of striking celebs claim a page from The Ugly Duckling, saying that their looks were something they had to grow into. In Jaimie Alexander’s case, it was the whole entertainment industry that had to morph to make her a kick-ass, statuesque, super swan. “I would literally go in for things that said blonde bombshell. And I was like, ‘Huh, I’m flat-chested, 5’9”, deep-voiced, with brunette hair.” Nowhere near the early-aughts, teen-drama, chunky-blonde-highlights mold. Fast-forward to the moment comic book panels became frames of every blockbuster, and suddenly looking like the Norse Goddess counterpart to Thor, means you’ve found your Scandinavian story, hold the ducks.
Now Pinterest survives purely based on searches for her dark and fierce tousled bob. Alexander is everywhere, from turns hosting The TODAY show to starring as a suspected former Navy SEAL in Blindspot, and yet somehow she still has time to bake gluten-free bread or vegan cookies and post recipes on her Instagram. “Norse goddesses in huge comic franchises—they’re just like us!” It’s that role that lets her jump between TV and movies, with the unique bonus of playing the same character. Alexander is Sif in Thor and Thor: The Dark World on the big screen, and on TV’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. That’s what happens when you’re part of a Universe. While her Sif character is “super” in the traditional sense, it’s Blindspot’s Jane Doe that is crushing the rules of what it means to be strong today. “‘The girl’ was always the secondary character, or had to have some sort of abnormal ability, like other worldly, to be tough. They had to be a super hero or they had to, you know, turn a building into a puddle or something like that,” her undeniably sexy rasp is cut with a wry twist. “How about we just have a normal woman with a very specific skill set in an extraordinary situation?”
