Jaimie Alexander: 'I can't believe I'm getting married to Peter perfect'
Actress Jaimie Alexander still can't believe she's engaged to wed a movie vampire, because she never thought she was the marrying type.
The Thor star and Twilight's Peter Facinelli became engaged almost a year ago (Mar15), after meeting on the set of Loosies in 2012, shortly after the actor had separated from his wife Jenny Garth.
Jaimie is very much in love with her man, but she admits her younger self must be shaking her head in disbelief now she's planning a wedding to a man with three kids from a previous marriage.
"I never saw myself getting married or having children," she told Shape magazine. "It just wasn't on my agenda. But being with Peter is the best-case scenario, because he has these three beautiful kids and I'm so happy to be in their lives."
And if they're lucky, Facinelli's daughters might end up inked on their future stepmother's body on an upcoming episode of her hit TV drama Blindspot, in which she stars as an amnesiac with a body of tattooed clues about her forgotten past.
Jaimie admitted to the publication she has started personalising her character's body art in an effort to pay tribute to those who mean a lot to her and the phrases she admires.
"I have one (tattoo) for each of my four brothers, Brady, David, Chance, and Matt," she explained, "and I have a quote on my left hip that says, 'I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become'. I think it's such an important reminder that you have the power to change where your life is heading and that you can be anything you want to be."
And there's one little tattoo that features on her character Taylor Shaw/Jane Doe's body that's a bit of a joke.
"One is 'ES', which stands for 'elephant shoe'." she added. "When you mouth the words, it looks like you're saying 'I love you'. I used to say it when I was younger as a joke, and now I use it as a reminder to be playful and childlike."
