My name is Alexandra Metaxa and I am an American actress living in London.
I work in Theatre, Television, Film and Voiceover with the occasional vintage modeling stint. I have a flexible schedule, love my job, and am easy and fun to work with. My natural accent is American, I am fluent in Greek, and hold a BSc (hons) in Psychology. As well as acting I love to travel (thank you dual citizenship), make a mean Christmas dinner, have training as a photographer and play the piano. Headshots are on the ‘Photos’ page, and my CV is under ‘About Me’. For a more extensive list of credits you can visit my spotlight page here.
