While out promoting her DVD release of her new movie, The Last Stand, Jaime Alexander talked to Yahoo! about Lady Sif’s journey in Thor: The Dark World, and for Twilight fans, she dishes on whether or not her action star talent can be used to pummel her boyfriend Peter Facinelli! I’ll be highlighting portions from the interview, but if you’d like read the entire article click here.
Jaime first speaks about her role as Lady Sif, and how Marvel will be exploring the Thor/Sif relationship in the next installment:
AP: Speaking of Lady Sif, I’m wondering what we can expect from her coming up in “Thor”?
JA: Well, you definitely see her sacrifice a lot for the man that she loves and the people that she loves: the Asgardians. You really see how strong of a woman she really is and you see a more vulnerable side. And what’s great about this is that you get to explore more of the Asgardian’s everyday life. So you get to see the warriors, where they came from, what their families are like.
It was really fun to film. We do obviously explore the Thor-Sif relationship a bit and just the hardships that go with that.
Adam Prockross from Yahoo then goes on to question Jaime about her relationship with Peter Facinelli, and whether she has seen any of the Twilight movies. I think one of our writers here *cough* Amy Taylor, will be a bit surprised by this:
AP: You were at the “Iron Man 3″ premiere recently. Have you ever gone to any of the Twilight premieres with Peter [Facinelli]?
JA: I’ve been to one but it was a small one in New York. I actually didn’t get to stay for the movie either. There were some people there that didn’t have seats. So we gave them our seats. So I’ve actually never seen any of them.
JA: Yeah. I know.
AP: Is that a sour point between you two?
JA: No, not at all. Oh my goodness, no. It’s all good.
Adam then brings up the question, “Will you be in Avengers?”
AP: Any chance we’ll see Lady Sif in “The Avengers 2″?
JA: There’s always that possibility, but I can’t tell you.
AP: Did you work Joss Whedon a little bit?
JA: Oh, you know, I’m always like, “Hey, Mr. Buffy.” Oh, I was a huge fan of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” a huge fan. I mean, I think that man’s work is fantastic. So – yes, there is a possibility that you may see Sif in “Avengers.” But to be quite honest, I have no idea. They wouldn’t tell me until right before, but I would love that.
Jaime now speaks about her wrestling days in high school, and if she can beat up Peter!
AP: So, have you always been into fitness? I have been reading through some of your tweets and seen that you tweet a lot about it. And I noticed something on your IMDB page that you were a high school wrestler?
JA: Yeah, I was. I know, I don’t know why I laugh now because back in the day I was like, “Yeah, so?” But now it’s like, kind of weird.
AP: Did you wrestle against guys?
JA: In the beginning, I trained with guys, I wrestled two boys in exhibition matches; they didn’t count. It was at R. L. Turner High School – which I think Vanilla Ice went to, in Texas – and I won both matches. But I still, to this day, I don’t really know, I mean it was hard, but I really don’t know if I won because they gave up or if I won because I actually beat them. I’d like to think I actually beat them. But they were punks so they deserved it.
AP: I’m pretty sure they didn’t let you win. Can you beat up Peter Facinelli?
JA: Oh, I don’t know. Probably not, he’s pretty strong. He works out a lot.
Peter isn’t that strong… is he? I still have my money on Jaime!
