Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Actress Sasha Alexander was a natural at portraying intense, strong-willed characters who also embraced their femininity. She made her mark on both the small and big screens with multifaceted roles like a stressed-out New York publicist on the post-collegiate drama, "Wasteland" (ABC, 1999), a small-town heartbreaker on the hit series, "Dawson's Creek" (WB, 1998-2003), and a tough-as-nails agent on "NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service" (CBS, 2003- ). Alexander also flexed her comedic muscles on sitcoms like "Friends" (NBC, 1994-2004) and on the big screen in the romantic comedy, "He's Just Not That Into You" (2009). But it was her turn as a meticulous and impeccably dressed medical examiner on the cop drama, "Rizzoli & Isles" (TNT, 2010- ), that finally aimed the spotlight squarely on Alexander, and showcased how versatile and seasoned of a performer she really was.

Notes

"I don't want to limit myself. Theater is my roots. I can't get the same feeling in movies or television. There. you're playing for the camera, not the people. I suppose now I lean more to film than to TV, because you do the work more in depth. There's a beginning, a middle, an end. On "Dawson", I didn't know where we were [in the story line] or where we were going. One week, I was just the friend. Two weeks later, I was having a miscarriage." --Alexander to Parade, June 17, 2001.
