Jaimie Alexander was born in Greenville, South Carolina on March 12, 1984. Her family moved to Grapevine, Texas, which is where she was raised. She later moved to Los Angeles to give acting a try.
Jaimie decided to go into acting as a spur-of-the-moment idea when she was 18. She says that she's lucky for getting into the business so well, after some people have been waiting for so long. Any luck that she gets by chance she calls "a happy accident."
