Lexa Doig

I first registered Candian actress Lexa Doig in the Gene Rodenberry created SF series Andromeda  (2000-2005) where she played a holographic personification of the spaceship Andromeda itself.   This ran for five series, surprisingly, but I gave up on it after the first one for some reason.  Sadly, the luminous presence of Miss Doig wasn't enough, in itself, to keep me watching.

Lexa in Andromeda

Andromeda, like so much SF TV was filmed in Vancouver and so it wasn't surprising she turned up in a lot of Vancouver-filmed TV shows, many of which were SF. She had roles in Tek-War, Stargate SG-1, The 4400, Smallville and V, as well as appearing in the SF horror film Jason X (2001).  

Lexa in Continuum

Currently she can be seen in the Canadian SF time travel series Continuum which is unusual in that it is actually set in Vancouver rather than having the city stand in for somewhere in America.  She looks pretty good in this and certainly doesn't look like she is about to turn forty, which she is this year. 

Last month she appeared in Primeval: New World, another Vancouver-filmed SF show, which is a spin-off from the ITV series.

Alexandria Lecciones Doig was born in Toronto in June 1973.  She gets her exotic looks from her Filipina mother.  Apparently she enjoys playing Dungeons and Dragons but I suspect that's online rather than pushing figures about, as that would be too much to contemplate!

  1. Very nice indeed, thanks for introducing us to her. Like your young (Russian?) ladies in the header too.
