Who is Alexa Davalos?

Alexa Davalos Dunas was born on the 28th May 1982, in Paris, France, of Jewish, Finnish, Greek and Spanish ancestry. She is now an American actress, who is probably best recognized for starring in the role of Gwen Raiden in The WB’s fantasy drama series “Angel” (2002-2003), playing Andromeda in the film “Clash Of The Titans” (2010), and as Juliana Crain in the Amazon Video sci-fi drama thriller series “The Man In The High Castle” (2015-2018).

Early Life and Education

Alexa is the only child born to former actress Elyssa Davalos, and Jeff Dunas, who works as a photographer; she is the granddaughter of Richard Davalos, was also an actor. She spent her early life in France and Italy before the family settled down in New York, USA. Alexa left home at the age of 17 and started working as a model, developing a business relationship with photographer Peter Lindbergh. She went to a Hebrew school, and later attended the off-Broadway Flea Theater in New York, when she decided that acting was her vocation.

Career Beginnings and “Angel”

Speaking about Alexa’s career, it began in 2002, when she made her official debut appearance in the role of Bess Gunther in the short film “The Ghost Of F. Scott Fitzgerald”, and the same year also appeared as Eddie Vance’s girlfriend in another short film “Coastlines”, but that appearance was uncredited. During the same year, she also guest starred in an episode of the TV series “Undeclared”, and played Eliza Randolph in the TV film “Untitled Secret Service Project”, after which came her breakthrough.

Her Breakthrough

Alexa’s breakthrough came in 2002, when she was chosen to portray Gwen Raiden in the fourth season of The WB’s fantasy drama series “Angel” from 2002 to 2003, starring with Alexis Denisof, David Boreanaz and Charisma Carpenter, which enormously increased her net worth as well as her popularity. When the filming was ended, she landed the role of Teddy Sampson in the biographical film about Pancho Villa, entitled “And Starring Pancho Villa As Himself” (2003), along with Antonio Banderas, Eion Bailey and Alan Arkin in the lead roles.

Rise to Prominence

Alexa came to real prominence with the role of Kyra in the sci-fi action adventure film “The Chronicles Of Riddick” (2004), starring Vin Diesel, Judy Dench and Colm Feore, which was followed by her portrayal of Samantha Carlton in the FOX drama series “Reunion” (2005-2006), and Sara in the TV film “Surrender, Dorothy” in 2006, starring next to Diane Keaton and Tom Everett Scott. Her next memorable roles came in 2007, when she was cast as Chloe in the romantic drama “Feast Of Love”, with Morgan Freeman and Radha Mitchell, and featured as Sally in the film “The Mist”. By the end of the decade, Alexa won the role of Lilka Ticktin in the Academy Award-nominated historical drama “Defiance” (2008), and Andromeda in the 2010 film “Clash Of The Titans”, directed by Louis Leterrier.

Recent Years and “The Man In The High Castle”

Alexa then took a short break from acting, but returned in 2013 with the part of Jasmine Fontaine in the TNT neo-noir crime drama series “Mob City”, based on the life of the famed mob boss, Bugsy Siegel. Since 2015, she has been playing Juliana Crain, the lead role in the Primetime Emmy Award-winning sci-fi drama thriller series “The Man In The High Castle” on the Amazon Video network, adding a significant amount to her net worth.

1[on what music she listens to]: Sidney Bechet. I'm an old-timey gal. I have my granddad's record collection, which I treasure, and my father's - The Rolling Stones to Sidney Bechet.
2[on what occupies her when away from work]: I'm such a hermit, I can't tell you. I love my garden (in Los Angeles). I spend a lot of time there. I travel. My heart really is in New York, in France. I go back as often as I can afford to. I read like a crazy person, I play the piano and I'm a photographer. I always say my photography keeps me sane. I spend a lot of time in the darkroom. It's a very solitary, quiet life when I'm not working.
3[on what she looks for in a role, and if she worried about being typecast "as a sci-fi or fantasy actor" early on]: We all do a few things that you kind of look back on and think, no one will remember that; that will be fine. It's being young and finding your way with everything. The older I get, for me it's about fear. If I read something and it scares the hell out of me, that's what I want to do. If it's a challenge and a massive risk and I'm going out on a limb ... those are the ones I want. And they are few and far between. I don't work very much because I'm very specific about what I want to do.
4To be perfectly honest with you, having a mother as an actress -- who I watched struggle tremendously during my childhood -- and to watch fluctuations of ups and downs is difficult. She did mainly television, so I think I associated that with a life of inconsistency. As I've come into my own, I realize it has nothing to do with the medium. It has broadened my horizons in my own mind and ultimately it is about the character for me. If I read something and I fall in love with the character, no matter what it is, I'm eager to do it. That is what happened with Gwen [on "Angel"].
5[on Gwen's wardrobe during Gwen and Angel's second fight in the season four Angel (1999) episode, "Angel" (1999) {Ground State (#4.2)}_] It was an absolute nightmare. The red leather pants were one thing, but the latex top was like wearing a balloon. It is incredibly hot to wear plastic, but it suited Gwen. It almost became comical at moments. I'm wearing these tight, unique pieces, and to choreograph the fights was very funny.
6[on her character "Gwen Raiden" on Angel (1999)]: Oh my god! We can all agree she's unlike any other character. The electrical power is just part of it. I thought, "Wow! How fun would that be?" She also fascinated me because Gwen has this tough outer shell, and yet, on the inside, she's incredibly scared and insecure after growing up "as a freak", as she says. That duplicity of being very insecure on one hand and incredibly strong on the exterior is what attracted me. ... Because she had this super power, which was so inhuman and something we can't relate to, it was a challenge to incorporate that into her and yet make Gwen feel like a real person. I didn't want people to see her as this odd, alien-like woman without a sense of being human. She was very much a regular girl with this distinctly odd ability -- and curse -- in many ways.
7[on the season four Angel (1999) episode, Angel: Players (2003)] In the third episode, I did most of my work with J. August Richards, and we had so much fun it was hard to believe. He's fantastic and I so adore him. We would sing between takes and do sit ups.
8I tend to curse in French more often than I do in English.
9My normal life is, I love to travel and I travel as often as I can. I don't stay in one place too long. But I'm an avid reader, I guess you could say, I'm a bit of a bookworm.
10I grew up very comfortable in this bizarre, circus-like existence, but, as comfortable as I was, I was also aware of the struggles that actors go through. A lot of people who come into the profession with these romantic expectations aren't being very realistic. And because I often saw the other side of that dream, I avoided acting like the plague at first.
11I don't really have any expectations. For me, it's all about falling in love with a project and being as present and open as you can while filming it. But once you get on the plane at the end of filming, it's out of your hands. - On her acting career.
