Of mixed Jewish, Finnish and Spanish ancestry, Alexa is the only child born to Elyssa Davalos, a former actress, and photographer Jeff Dunas. She spent her early life in Italy and France, before the family settled in New York, USA, her parent’s country.

Alexa left home at 17 and started working as a model, developing a business relationship with photographer Peter Lindbergh. After she decided that acting was her vocation, Alexa started attending the off-Broadway Flea Theater in New York.

She made her official screen debut in the short film “The Ghost of F. Scott Fitzgerald” in 2002, though she also appeared in an uncredited role in the film “Coastlines”. The same year she portrayed Gwen Raiden in the TV fantasy drama series “Angel”, so her net worth, was now well established, along with her popularity.

The following year, Alexa featured in the biopic about Pancho Villa, entitled “And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself”, with Antonio Banders, Eion Bailey, and Alan Arkin in the lead roles, but really came to prominence with the role of Kyra in the sci-fi action adventure film “The Chronicles of Riddick”, starring Vin Diesel, Judy Dench and Colm Feore, which fared well at the box office which only increased Alexa’s net worth to a large degree. After that, new memorable roles followed, such as the role of Sara in the television drama film “Surrender, Dorothy” (2006), starring with Diane Keaton and Tom Everett Scott, then the lead role in the romantic drama “Feast of Love”, with Morgan Freeman and Radha Mitchell, plus a notable appearance in the Academy Award-nominated history drama “Defiance” (2008), starring Daniel Craig, Liev Schreiber and Jamie Bell. In 2010, Alexa featured in the fantasy adventure “Clash of the Titans”, which further increased her net worth, since the film grossed close to $500 million at the box office.

After that, she took a short break from acting, but returned in 2013 with the part of Jasmine Fontaine in the TV crime drama series “Mob City”, based on the life of the famed mob boss, Bugsy Siegel. Since 2015, Alexa has been playing the lead role of Juliana Crain in the Primetime Emmy Award-winning sci-fi drama thriller series “The Man in the High Castle” (2015-2018), which has also added a significant amount to her net worth.

When it comes to her personal life, Alexa purposely keeps her most intimate details hidden from the public eye, though back in 2006 she started a romantic relationship with famous actor Josh Lucas, which lasted for two years. Since then, Alexa has apparently chosen to remain single.

#Quote
1[on what music she listens to]: Sidney Bechet. I'm an old-timey gal. I have my granddad's record collection, which I treasure, and my father's - The Rolling Stones to Sidney Bechet.
2[on what occupies her when away from work]: I'm such a hermit, I can't tell you. I love my garden (in Los Angeles). I spend a lot of time there. I travel. My heart really is in New York, in France. I go back as often as I can afford to. I read like a crazy person, I play the piano and I'm a photographer. I always say my photography keeps me sane. I spend a lot of time in the darkroom. It's a very solitary, quiet life when I'm not working.
3[on what she looks for in a role, and if she worried about being typecast "as a sci-fi or fantasy actor" early on]: We all do a few things that you kind of look back on and think, no one will remember that; that will be fine. It's being young and finding your way with everything. The older I get, for me it's about fear. If I read something and it scares the hell out of me, that's what I want to do. If it's a challenge and a massive risk and I'm going out on a limb ... those are the ones I want. And they are few and far between. I don't work very much because I'm very specific about what I want to do.
4To be perfectly honest with you, having a mother as an actress -- who I watched struggle tremendously during my childhood -- and to watch fluctuations of ups and downs is difficult. She did mainly television, so I think I associated that with a life of inconsistency. As I've come into my own, I realize it has nothing to do with the medium. It has broadened my horizons in my own mind and ultimately it is about the character for me. If I read something and I fall in love with the character, no matter what it is, I'm eager to do it. That is what happened with Gwen [on "Angel"].
5[on Gwen's wardrobe during Gwen and Angel's second fight in the season four Angel (1999) episode, "Angel" (1999) {Ground State (#4.2)}_] It was an absolute nightmare. The red leather pants were one thing, but the latex top was like wearing a balloon. It is incredibly hot to wear plastic, but it suited Gwen. It almost became comical at moments. I'm wearing these tight, unique pieces, and to choreograph the fights was very funny.
6[on her character "Gwen Raiden" on Angel (1999)]: Oh my god! We can all agree she's unlike any other character. The electrical power is just part of it. I thought, "Wow! How fun would that be?" She also fascinated me because Gwen has this tough outer shell, and yet, on the inside, she's incredibly scared and insecure after growing up "as a freak", as she says. That duplicity of being very insecure on one hand and incredibly strong on the exterior is what attracted me.... Because she had this super power, which was so inhuman and something we can't relate to, it was a challenge to incorporate that into her and yet make Gwen feel like a real person. I didn't want people to see her as this odd, alien-like woman without a sense of being human. She was very much a regular girl with this distinctly odd ability -- and curse -- in many ways.
7[on the season four Angel (1999) episode, Angel: Players (2003)] In the third episode, I did most of my work with J. August Richards, and we had so much fun it was hard to believe. He's fantastic and I so adore him. We would sing between takes and do sit ups.
8I tend to curse in French more often than I do in English.
9My normal life is, I love to travel and I travel as often as I can. I don't stay in one place too long. But I'm an avid reader, I guess you could say, I'm a bit of a bookworm.
10I grew up very comfortable in this bizarre, circus-like existence, but, as comfortable as I was, I was also aware of the struggles that actors go through. A lot of people who come into the profession with these romantic expectations aren't being very realistic. And because I often saw the other side of that dream, I avoided acting like the plague at first.
11I don't really have any expectations. For me, it's all about falling in love with a project and being as present and open as you can while filming it. But once you get on the plane at the end of filming, it's out of your hands. - On her acting career.
