Woman Crush Wednesday
Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif)
Written by: Ryan Fu @fu_beatz
Jaimie Alexander was born Greenville, South Carolina but moved to Grapevine, Texas when she was four years old. She has 4 brothers. She took theatre classes in grade school as a hobby but was kicked out in high school because she could not sing and so she took up sports instead.
Her first role was back in 2004 on an Indie flick called Squirrel Trap (2004) where she played a co-lead role of Sara. She landed her first leading role of Hanna Thompson in the small-budget (USD$15,000), The Other Side (2006). A year later she was cast as Jessi XX in the hit ABC Show, Kyle XY (2006) where she played the role of a super human being created by scientists as an experiment in a lab. She was nominated for the Saturn Awards as “Best Supporting Actress on Television” for that role in 2008.
Her biggest role came in 2011, when she was cast as Lady Sif, a warrior goddess of Asgard in the blockbuster movie from Marvel Comics, Thor (2011). She was also part of its sequel, Thor: The Dark World (2013)
When I was watching Thor: The Dark World, the sequel, I kept thinking why does Thor want be with Jane Foster played by Natalie Portman. I mean don’t get me wrong, Natalie Portman is hot but she is no woman warrior Goddess of Asgard. I saw Jaimie leaving a gym today in Los Angeles and she looked fit and sexy. This is why she is our Woman Crush Wednesday, but don’t take our word for it and check out these photos of her.
