Nerdist Podcast: Jaimie Alexander (TWCH)

Between portraying Sif in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Jane Doe on NBC’s BlindspotJaimie Alexander has established herself as one of Hollywood’s most formidable actresses…and she lives up to her billing! Last Sunday, Jaimie was the latest guest on AMC’s  Talking with Chris Hardwick, and this is the special extended edition of Jaime’s chat with our founder, Chris Hardwick.

Naturally, Blindspot came up a lot in this episode. And while Jaimie wasn’t allowed to tell us why Jane Doe’s tattoos suddenly glowed in the season finale, she did share some insights about the opening scene of the series in which she was naked in Times Square and covered in full body tattoos. According to Jaimie, it’s an eight hour process to get into the full makeup, which is why she doesn’t do it that often on the show. Jaimie also shared how she is able to distract herself during the makeup sessions and spoke about her character’s onscreen fight with Rhonda Rousey and her favorite scene from the second season.

It turns out that some of “Jane” follows Jaimie into her real life whether she wants it or not. On this show, Jaimie tells Chris about an occasion when she had to get physical with someone who got a little too grabby with one of her friends.

After starring in Kyle XY, Jaimie apparently went through a brief down period in her career before landing the role of Sif. She went on to tell Chris how she became involved with Marvel, how she was chosen for the Thor movies, and why she used Tom Hiddleston as her unofficial dialect coach!

Jaimie also told Chris about growing up in a family as the only girl, wrestling her younger brother, and reading comics. She’s a true fangirl, and not at all pleased that Jubilee is a vampire now. Take note, Marvel!

Make sure to watch Talking with Chris Hardwick Sunday nights at 11pm on AMC or on amc.com/talking! The extended audio will premiere as a podcast here every Friday after a new episode makes its AMC debut.
