The most satisfaction Jaimie Alexander quotes that are life-changing and eye-opening
Life is about trusting your feelings and taking chances, losing and finding happiness, appreciating the memories, learning from the past, and realizing people change.
I will never be a waif. I want to market myself as a healthy-looking woman who is an action-star kind of girl.
When I was training, I trained with my younger brother Brady.
I would wrestle some of my friends, who I had grown up with, which showed me some moves, but it was never a full on match. When I went to competitions, there were other girls, so I always wrestled girls.
I was cast in 'Thor' back in 2009, so it sort of took me out of the running for anything tied to DC Comics.
I actually read “Wonder Woman,” and here’s the thing about her: she’s more of a physical presence than anything else. You don’t get to really know her on the inside.
It's kind of a cross between, I think.
It's not, you know, over the top Old English, like Lord of the Rings would be or something like that, but there is a very sophisticated air about the Asgardians[?], you know, in their dialogue, and - hold on. Okay. Um, and I'm doing an English accent in the movie.
I'm probably one of the worst actors as far as preparation goes, because I actually don't prepare. I find it easier to read the script and whatever hits me in my stomach, like deep down, I just go with it. And the director kind of molds me whether to go right or left with it.
If I find the right character, I don't care if it's a film, a television show or a play, I'm gonna do it. Everybody crosses over and it's just one big pool of stuff now.
I'm blessed with very fast memorization skills, so I don't have to read it too far in advance.
I'm pretty healthy, most of the time.
I think all the fight stuff. I'm cut out for that. I used to wrestle in high school so I really love it, yeah. I love all the fighting and martial arts. Hey, why am I not up there? Oh, it's just a rehearsal. Keep going.
Just for fun, I'm really goofy and I would love to do some stupid comedy.
I'm talking, like, crazy, out there, Will Ferrell type of thing. I love it, I think those movies are so funny.
Um, the relationship between Thor and Sif in this movie is quite platonic.
I mean, they're good buddies, they've grown up with each other, they're warriors, they fight side by side. We haven't take it to the next level yet. I'm going to throw that in there. But yeah, she kind of thinks he's a little bit pig-headed, but she loves him nevertheless, you know, she's like that's my buddy, I'll do what I can for him.
Television is competitive now, and the great stories live on television right now. I'm finding that I'm enjoying television more than film, these days. That was my motivation to take a TV show.
Green screen, you know, it's been interesting, it's my first time to ever work with green screen technology, and it's, sometimes it can be really boring because you're like wow, I've got to really imagine all of this stuff around me. But it's low maintenance, which is nice, um, and it's not as hard as I thought it would be, so.
The first day's always the hardest, because it moves so much faster than a film does and once you get into that rhythm, though, you feel like you've accomplished so much in such a short period of time, so there a bit of comfort in that. You just have to find your rhythm.
I'll say this, I'm no stranger to working with a foreign cast, foreign directors, that sort of thing. I love it, because I think that when you have people from different countries, it sort of brings everyone together, it's more of a worldly film.
I got into the business all by chance.
I really enjoy what I do now, but it wasn't always a huge dream of mine. I think I always had thought about it growing up, though.
I think that when people look at me, and they look at my height and my voice and my coloring, they automatically think, "Tough."
I try to do yoga when I can to make sure that I'm flexible and that I'm not going to tear any muscle or pull anything.
There was one time I wrestled two boys and I beat them both! They weighed a lot less than I did and I think they didn't want to hurt a girl, so I don't know if I really won - I'd like to think I did.
Chris Farley, I was a huge fan of his growing up.
I would love to do something kind of slapstick and funny, maybe where I could change my look even a little bit.
I'm a very physical person. I hug people, more so than shake hands.
