10 QUESTIONS WITH VOLUPTUOUS HOTTIE ALEXANDRA ACKERMAN
1. You are one of the sexiest women in the world but what really defines being sexy in Alexandra Ackerman’s world?
A: Ha! So kind! I think being sexy comes from within..it comes from always knowing who you are. Ever since I was a child I knew who i was, my passions, and I have always stayed true to myself. I think when you are confident and know who you are and possess kind/good values that is truly sexy. Also, being an exotic mix hasn’t hurt my career either!
2. What made you catch the acting bug and what has been the most exciting part of your career?
A: Acting and singing have been my passions since a young age. When i was a child my grandparents took me to see live musicals – and I was hit with the acting/singing bug-so since a young age it has been in my blood. My father and mother are creative and talented so it was literally in my blood! I love live theater and singing and I also love working in film and television. I have pretty high expectations in every area of my life and I do with my career-I’d say the excitement never stops and I will let you know when i get to the “most” exciting part! I would love to be Broadway…..bet ya didn’t know that!
3. Can you tell us about your latest feature “The Brothers Cannibal” and what was it like working with Scream Queen Elissa Dowling?
A: Because I got to play the awesome character role of Maude – a gypsy woman who is sexually charged and lusts after the main character – it was very fun to play a character role for once! Elissa is awesome – we didn’t have any scenes together but we were both on set because she had a scene before my scenes. She is a really personable actress and pretty hot as well.
4. Having played pretty, seductive characters in the films “Interstate” and “My Confession”, what would your dream role be?
A: Dream role – I have never filmed a period piece – I think a period role would be fun. I do enjoy playing those seductress roles and edgy characters because even though these are parts of me I am a pretty non edgy and a non aggressive person..and def not a crazy seductress…hehe.
5. Is it tough to be in this industry and do you think women get enough recognition especially in the indie scene?
A: This industry is beyond tough. Especially because there is no security. I believe talent,skill, and dedication prevail. I love the indie scene because i want to be in character driven stimulating pieces. I like blockbuster films as well..but indie films tend to focus heavily on a few characters vs many plus action/visuals.
6. What are the fundamental differences in performing on film as opposed to modeling?
A: Modeling and acting are similar…when I shoot I try to embody a feeling or persona..I do the same with acting. With acting there is of course more research and in depth analytical work involved…but it is still emotionally based – its an essence you are trying to convey on film and in shoots. You want the audience/viewers to see and walk away with a feeling…
7. Which is your favorite all time movie and why?
A: I do not have a favorite movie – i enjoy so many, however I am a big fan of “Heavenly Creatures” with Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey. They are amazing actresses and the film was so engrossing, touching and titillating…and yes disturbing…I like films with imagination, grit, and fantasy.
8. Can you tell us more about your burgeoning singing career and the musical style you embody?
A: I have always performed in musicals and plays. I went to a performing arts high school which taught me how to balance. I had regular classes then drama and musical theater classes plus if I had a main-stage show-rehearsals. After high school i majored in theater arts in college and while in school i performed in community theater then regional theater. I was very fortunate to build my resume while in college. I am an LA native from Hollywood! So I am in LA and i have been in shows in LA, San Francisco and Nevada. I have also booked tours of musicals. I love singing and it is as much a passion for me as acting. I am unique as far as what styles i like to sing-no pop or rock for me although I do listen to pop and rock. I love to sing show tunes and jazz. When I am not in a show I fill my time with singing showcases and contests and open mikes to get that vocal release and experiment! I love singing with live musicians-its a rush.
9. How do you take the love and adoration from your fans even those that may come from distant countries?
A: Fans are the best support group around! i send my headshots all over and with gratitude. It feels great to know people appreciate your work.

There is always more to come in my world – I love what I do and love to be involved in any medium as far as film,TV or on stage.
