Lexa Doig is a stunningly sexy Canadian actress of Irish, Scottish, and Filipino parentage. With her father being Irish-Scottish and her mother being Filipina, her physical features are what make her stand out in the television industry.
Her exposure to the theater when she was nine sparked a passion in her for the performing arts. After watching a production of Porgy and Bess, she found herself motivated to pursue acting even at a young age.
As a child, Lexa explored rhythmic gymnastics, which allowed her to become more graceful, flexible, and fluid in her movements. Such an experience can change one’s view on body positivity and confidence, especially as an adult. To this day, this confidence is what makes it possible for Lexa to own her roles onscreen, and stay comfortable in her skin.
She had an early start in modeling when she was only 16 years old. Although she dropped out of high school to pursue an acting career, the small sacrifice started paying off when she landed her first TV role in 1993 in a show called “The Hidden Room in the Year.”
After many years and acting roles later, she landed a title role in the sci-fi adventure series “Andromeda,” which ran from 2000 to 2005. In 2002, she also bagged the lead role in the sci-fi action gore movie Jason X.
She has now made a name for herself in the sci-fi and adventure genre, playing notable roles in TV shows like Arrow, Continuum, and Stargate SG-1. More recently, she has played several recurring characters in the Mysteries Channel, Hallmark Movies, and the Aurora Teagarden films. She met her husband, Michael Shanks while shooting an episode for Stargate SG-1. They now have a daughter together.
The diverse roles she’s played make her a hot commodity in the film and tv industries. Not to mention, she’s got an out-of-this-world bikini body, exotic features, and magnetic personality. These traits have brought her a long way and will take her even further whatever passion or genre she’d like to pursue.
Also, Lexa has admitted that she enjoys playing RPG games like “Dungeons and Dragons.” She’s also a sucker for cartoons like South Park (1997), and Pinky and the Brain (1995), and is a self-professed geek that considers herself “one of the boys.”
Although the male species may look at her as an otherwordly entity with a great ass and set of boobs, she has shattered the stereotypes often thrown at actresses with mixed heritage trying to break through the TV and film industries. Lexa Doig‘s long list of films and TV shows is a testament to her range as an actress and her commitment to her craft.
