I recently had the beyond amazing privilege to fly out to California for the red carpet premiere of THOR: THE DARK WORLD! Hopefully you’ve had a chance to read my interview with Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki. He wasn’t the only Thor star we had the chance to chat with. My fellow 24 other bloggers and I were able to sit down with Jaimie Alexander, who plays Thor’s friend Sif in the film! How awesome is that?
I have to say, as Jaimie waltzed into the room, she was absolutely stunning! A green “fur” coat hid her premiere outfit, as she quickly quipped that it was indeed a fake. No real fur there! She showed a little bit of her comedic side wittingly asking if she looked like a “green wookie.” Seriously… did us bloggers luck out in getting to interview some of the friendliest celebrities around? Chatting with Jaimie was like hanging with that fun girlfriend you grab a beer and catch a baseball game with! Right away she seemed very down to earth and easy to talk to. It wasn’t long before the questions were rolling in.
Below I’ve included some highlights from the interview. Jaimie is exactly the type of girl I want to be best friends with, hehe. I love that she is NOT your typical drop-dead gorgeous Hollywood celebrity. She has a unique and tomboy side to her. She believes empowering young girls and women all across the nation to feel confident and speaks with a message to help boost their self-esteems.
This first question centered around how Jaimie felt to be a strong female character in a super hero series. She enthusiastically replied that it has been an amazing feeling. Jaimie feels that Marvel has written her role well, and for her, the role has been a “dream come true!”
Your character in the comics has a romantic relationship with Thor? Will we get to see any of that, the triangle they have going on?
JAIMIE: They hint at it a little bit in the film. They can’t go fully there,but they definitely hint at it. It’s always fun, because it is in the comic books, and we definitely want to appease the fans. I look at him a few times. Unfortunately he’s not shirtless in front of me, but that’s fine, it’s all right.
