With looks that could kill and a role in the Netflix summer flick The Little Mermaid, Das model Alexis Marie is on the brink of stardom.
Tell us about The Little Mermaid.
It’s a modern-day take on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. It was exciting to work alongside William Moseley, one of the most respected and talented English actors. We had great chemistry.
How has your acting background helped your modeling?
I did a shoot for HairUWear and had to portray Audrey Hepburn and Madonna. I felt completely in my element.
If you weren’t in the entertainment industry...
I would be a fashion designer. Watching a celebrity arrive on the red carpet wearing one of my garments I designed for her would be a lifelong dream.
Who inspires you?
Twiggy, Mia Wasikowska and Farrah Fawcett. They are all strong, independent females who refuse to blend in.
The burritos at Coyo Taco. They have the green rice that you can’t find anywhere else, and it’s simply delicious. Favorite place to shop? I love iShine365 for bikinis.
I’m working on a new movie, Reefa, that will be filmed in Miami. It’s about a street artist.
Advice to aspiring models?
Don’t waste time trying to fit in. Be yourself.
