Pajiba 10 For Your Consideration: Jaimie Alexander

By Jodi Clager | Marvel Movies | June 30, 2014 | Comments ()


Until very recently, Jaimie Alexander was just Sif, my favorite female Marvel hero of the current glut of films. She was gorgeous, of course, and she was a woman I could believe would kick someone’s ass for attempting to destroy her home. My full-blown lady-crush did not erupt until I listened to her on the Nerdist podcast this week at work.

I love her.

She can fight alongside the God of Thunder.



She likes knives. In fact, a knife fell from her overturned purse when she auditioned for Sif.


She grew up in Texas and has 4 brothers. Jaimie was on the wrestling team in high school and rides a motorcycle.


Her prom date ditched her for another girl so Jaimie left the prom and returned home to play Xbox.


These are all interesting things. However, Jaimie is also very funny and has a great sense of humor. She also speaks at schools about positive body images. She works with human trafficking survivors and takes them to the gym. Jaimie believes that this helps the women to take the control of their bodies back while also becoming healthier and more focused.


Jaimie also dresses up as Sif and visits sick kids in the hospital.

Basically, she’s gorgeous, smart, funny, conscientious, giving, and more than worthy of your Pajiba 10 vote.

    I'm so weak. I want to vote for basically everyone who's gotten a featured post on Pajiba.

  • T-Rev35

    Pretty much this. Everyone listed for consideration, so far, has earned a vote.
    Didn't realize the Lady Sif stirred my lions until this nomination, but yeah, she's amazing.

    The first time I saw Jaimie Alexander was in Kyle XY. You can see the scene here To say that her introduction was impressive would be an understatement. And not just because she was naked but also because she just had this amazing presence. She could switch between powerful,strong, confident,deadly and kind,vulnerable and just goddamn adorable at the drop of a hat. It's no surprise that the fans liked her so much that they changed the entire storyline and expanded her part significantly

    Just a few months after Kyle XY started one of my national TV started airing this horrible soap Watch Over Me where Jaimie just happened to star(and it was so beneath her but she was still damn good at it). Suddenly I was surrounded Jaimie and my crush was full blown. I even went back and searched all the cheap b movies she had been in like Squirell Trap and various horros(including one with a then not famous Chloe Moretz)

    And she was great just everywhere. I started following her myspace(yes it was that long ago) and it was pretty good . I was overjoyed to hear that she got cast as Sif(sadly this mean the death of her myspace since her blog name and her entire theme was about Wonder Woman) and I am just so happy to see that she becoming so well known and that people outside of the small Kyle XY fandom actually know and like her

    Hope I didn't come off as too creepy but I have been a fan of hers for a long time and I get really excited when I see people appreciating her and wanted to share:)

  • kinoumenthe

    Oh gosh ! Yes, that's HER ! Completely forgot about that series…

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    She's beautiful, but I'm not sure I've actually seen her in a movie that I enjoyed. Am I missing a significant role?

  • Sean

    No, you aren't.

  • strawhatter

    In the words of Andy Townsend "Not for me,Clive"
    Don't get me wrong the visiting sick children in hospital i awesome but she needs more than a supporting role in probably the worst marvel movie so far to be considered.Also with regard to the dress:

  • Enrique del Castillo

    That Nerdist podcast was great; I liked her on Thor, but the podcast made me like her a lot more. She seems funny, grounded and quite interesting. I really hope Marvel pushes her character more

  • Dave Dorris

    If they don't, I will. Push it real good.

    Ok, I'm sorry. Send me away.

  • Irina

    I know THAT dress is an argument in her favor for most people, but for me... I just can't. It was such a desperate, slutty call for attention. I'm sorry. Bring on the downvotes.

  • Sean

    I agree that was a desperate attempt at publicity. Which worked. That said...goddamn.

  • Especially when you consider that her date for the night was her boyfriend's daughter. The episode of The Nerdist podcast and dressing up as Siff to visit sick kids did a lot to tell me that she seems like an otherwise great person.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    I agree with you that the dress made me eyeroll. However, considering I saw photos of it everywhere for then next 3 weeks, looks like the joke was on me.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I don't object to your opinion of her dress, I object to your use of the word slutty. Desperate for attention works, but there's too much judgement in the word "slutty" for my taste. Find a new word.

  • Irina

    I agree and I apologize. Won't edit it out since both you and Kristen Mc are right and people should see what you are objecting to, but it wasn't the right word to use.

  • lowercase_ryan

    fair play to you then, I appreciate what you just did.

  • Finance_Nerd

    You may not like it, but her in that dress makes me so Stif I'm getting Thor

  • TK

    If loving this joke is wrong, I don't ever want to be right.

  • Mrcreosote

    The joke is certainly Loki.

  • Finance_Nerd

    Oh no you Odin't

  • TK

    You guys are ragnarocking my world right now.

  • Mrcreosote

    It's a rainbow bridge too far.

  • Finance_Nerd

    Jokes like this can make people want to pull their hair out. In other words... go Baldr

  • Kristen Mc

    Possibly desperate, not necessarily slutty.

  • Mrs. Julien

    It's wonderfully vulgar, but it was also a very savvy career move.

    (And, yes, it is depressing that giving glimpses of one's good china is a career move in this day and age.)

  • Irina

    Oh it was a very smart career move, she went from "Who?" to "Oh, her!" overnight. Just wish she didn't have to flash everyone to get noticed.

  • What grossed me out was that she was at the event with her boyfriend's young daughter.

  • luthien26

    I know, I know - they've already cast someone else. BUT JAIMIE ALEXANDER FOR WONDER WOMAN, DAMNIT!

  • foolsage

    I really enjoy her as an actress, but I think there are better people for that role (for reasons of height and Amazonian build, not skill at acting; she's convinced me that she can kick ass and look gorgeous doing so). If Jaimie were only, say, 3" taller, she'd be absolutely perfect for Diana of Themyscira, who probably won't be called "Wonder Woman" because Davod Goyer is a twit who's too cool for comics. Sigh.

    Having said that, I'd strongly prefer Jaimie to Gal Gadot, who's the same height, and was actually cast as Wonder Woman.

  • JustOP

    A worthy contender, but I'd have preferred Antje Traue from Man of Steel if we're going with Superhero ladies. Gorgeous, strong (she punches Superman in the face, c'mon), and dem eyes. We need to see more of her on our television screens.

  • Kala

    I like the way you think. Aside from my Creepy Hot Guy Crush Michael Shannon, she's one of the best things about the film. She's drop dead gorgeous and a complete bad ass to boot.

  • Ryan Ambrose

    She was the best part about that dreadful movie.


  • JustOP

    I thought the film was great. Great cast, solid action scenes, beautiful score.

  • Ryan Ambrose

    I kinda agree it contained a great cast, solid action scenes and a beautiful score by Hans Zimmer, which is why I should have by all means liked it but instead just found it borderline distasteful.

  • John W

    She is worthy.

  • Dulce et Banana

    I imagine there's a fellow in Texas whose tears won't quite let him read this article.

  • foolsage

    I really, really hope so. That guy is an idiot.

  • Dulce et Banana

    If only because dumping someone like that is a completely sh*tty thing to do to anyone.

    Let's just say the fact she's gorgeous AND she's a working actress who garners attention AND appears to be just a completely normal person is the icing on that CAKE! Booyeah. Game, set, match, Mr Dumper.
