Biography[edit | edit source]
Alexa was raised in Los Angeles around her mother, grandmother, and aunts. Her mother is a makeup artist who emigrated from her birthplace of Michoacán, Mexico to the U.S. in the 1980s. She grew up speaking half English and half Spanish around her family, and describes herself as feeling connected to her Latin roots.
When she was younger, Alexa frequently performed and sang for house guests and eventually began taking acting classes. After appearing in well-received projects including Brigsby Bear, Mid90s, and The OA, Alexa was casted for the role of Maddy in Euphoria after originally auditioning for another character.
