Before landing the roles of Emma and Sutton on The Lying Game, Alexandra starred as Maddie Coleman in long-running US soap As The World Turns.

She also played Deb in 20 episodes of web series Rockville, CA, featured in an episode of MTV's True Life and made a guest appearance in Medium as an animal rights activist.

Speaking about her role on The Lying Game, she told E!: "I love playing two characters. It's kind of always been a dream of mine. I started in soaps... and there were always people who played the evil twin sister, so I always wanted to do that."

She added: "I was really was drawn to the writing and the script and the mystery of it all. It's a pretty cool mystery. It's not just like a normal teen soap."

Originally from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, 25-year-old Alexandra moved to New York City (and then Los Angeles) to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. She currently spends much of her time in Austin, Texas, where The Lying Game is shot and is a big fan of the city's thriving music scene.
