Jaimie Alexander Talks Hardcore Workouts and How She Lost 20 Pounds
The tough-as-nails Blindspot actress talks about her wrestling days, eating like a dude, and working out with a Navy SEAL (oh, and did we mention she learned to box with Chris Hemsworth?)
Girly is a foreign concept to Jaimie. “I grew up with four brothers. I used to play sports with them. And I liked wearing their clothes. I’d run around in T-shirts, jeans, and baseball caps. Even my nickname, James, is a guy’s name. I didn’t understand how to be comfortable being feminine, painting my nails pink, and wearing girly dresses. No wonder I didn’t have a lot of female friends until I in was in my late twenties—I just didn’t know how to be around them.”
She eats like a dude. “I learned a lot from being around boys all the time. I’m not easily offended, and I have a certain toughness. I also eat really fast. If I didn’t, my brothers would take my food. When we were young, they would go, ‘Oh, there’s some chocolate left? Mine!’ It made me durable. I can take a lot.”
Skinny is so not her goal in life. “I pretty much eat all day to keep my strength up. I’m primarily a vegetarian who has an occasional side of fish. When I trained for the movie Thor [Jaimie played the warrior goddess Sif], there were days when I was burning 4,000 calories and I had to slam lots of protein shakes. Now my day starts with a green shake called Garden of Plenty, which is packed with superfoods and grains. When I’m working, craft services makes me these amazing gluten-free wraps with lots of vegetables and ‘vegannaisse’ or hummus. I generally keep my diet pretty healthy, but if there’s pizza, I’ll eat it. And I will knock back a beer or some bourbon, too. I don’t deprive myself. And I hate being skinny. It’s not a good look for me. When I eat well and work out, I’m truly at my best.”
Her high school sport: wrestling. Yes, wrestling. “In competition, I only went up against females, but I trained with the guys because there weren’t enough girls on my school team. All the discipline and perseverance I have now comes from that sport. I get through all the intense physical training for Blindspot because of what I learned from wrestling.”
Her workouts are hardcore. “I do what’s called a prison workout—a lot of sprint-interval work and burpees—which I have a love-hate relationship with. My latest obsession is Valslides by Valerie Waters. You can use them anywhere, on hardwood floors or carpet. I do lunges, push-ups, pikes, and ab work with them. I also have a TRX band and a jump rope in my trailer. And I love swimming. It’s a great low-impact high-cardio workout. I never did it as a kid, but for Blindspot, I trained with a Navy SEAL.”
She learned to box with Chris Hemsworth… “I wasn’t very healthy in my twenties—I sat around and ate a lot of crap, and my weight peaked at 150 pounds. Then I got the part in Thor. I felt as if I had a whole new purpose in life. I was like, I can do this, but I was so out of shape. Chris and I started boxing to train for our roles, and I became the athlete I was in high school. I lost 20 pounds and packed on a ton of muscle.”

It takes a certain real-life toughness to play a convincing Jane Doe.
In the opening scene of NBC’s action drama Blindspot, fall’s highest-rated new network show, Jaimie Alexander unfurls from a duffel bag in Times Square like a twenty-first-century tattooed manifestation of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus—a moment she would later call “the most epic scene I’ve ever done in any project I’ve ever worked on.” This from a woman who’s wielded swords on horseback as Thor’s Lady Sif, played a human lab experiment on Kyle XY, and acted opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in the pyrotechnic-peppered The Last Stand. When it comes to highly physical roles, “I’m like a magnet,” Alexander says, noting that only twice has she played something approximating an ordinary person. “Everybody else has been a butt kicker. Or, like, an alien or a superhuman.”
Thirty-one-year-old Alexander grew up in Grapevine, Texas, with four basketball-playing, rodeo-riding brothers; in high school, she was on the wrestling team, not in the drama club. Her career was launched almost by accident when, while pitching in by reading with the male actors at the audition for the 2006 movie The Other Side, she was cast in the film’s leading role. Blindspot’s Jane Doe, a preternatural powerhouse of a fighter who, at the series’ start, has total amnesia, would be a daunting role for most actors; how do you play someone without a personal history or an understanding of friendship—without, even, a favorite food? “All I had to go off of was gut instinct, which is so awesome,” Alexander says, “because I feel like as women we should do that anyway. We should ignore society and trust what we have inside of us.”
