Sasha Alexander

Actress Sasha Alexander has been drawn to portraying intense, strong-willed characters who also embraced their femininity. She has 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, 2010-16), that finally aimed the spotlight squarely on Alexander, and showcased how versatile and seasoned of a performer she really was.
