"Baywatch" and Lifetime movie star, television host, activist and environmentalist

The star of over 75 feature films and television programs and internationally recognized for her 5-year starring role as Lt. Stephanie Holden in the TV series "Baywatch," Alexandra Paul began her acting career at age 18 starring in the highly rated telefilm "Paper Dolls." She then starred in the Warner Bros. motion picture "American Flyers" opposite Kevin Costner, "Dragnet" opposite Tom Hanks and Dan Ackroyd, "Eight Million Ways to Die" opposite Jeff Bridges and Andy Garcia, Stephen King's "Christine," "Spyhard" with Leslie Nielsen and two films opposite Pierce Brosnan.

More recently, Alexandra starred in the independent film "Christmas Spirit" and the made-for-TV movie "No One to Blame." In 2011, she was a spokesperson for the Volt, a plug-in car by Chevrolet. Alexandra starred in "The Boy She Met Online" and co-starred in "A Beer Tale" in 2009. In 2008, the independent film "Tru Loved," in which Alexandra played a gay mother, swept film festivals. That year she also starred in the movies "A Date With Murder," "Family of Four," "A Sister's Secret" and "Christmas Crash." She guest starred in the Emmy nominated series, "Mad Men," and co-starred in the independent film, "Javelina." Alexandra is also featured in the highly acclaimed, award winning documentary "Who Killed the Electric Car," now out on DVD and a top 10 documentary on Netflix. Her other roles include "Rough Air" opposite Eric Roberts, "Above and Beyond" opposite Adam Baldwin & Costas Mandylor, "Exposure" opposite Ron Silver, "Redemption of the Ghost" opposite Diane Ladd and John Savage, the Disney Channel telefilm "Braniacs," "Breaking Up Really Sucks," a short lesbian-themed film for POWER UP Films, and a recurring role in the final season of "Melrose Place."

For four years, Alexandra hosted the extreme sports series "Wild Waters" on the Outdoor Life Network, in addition to hosting the WE network series "Winning Women" for two seasons. She also hosted 150 episodes of the environmental cable access talk show "Earth Talk Today." In 2013, she participated in Fox's reality special "Stars In Danger: The High Dive," competing against seven other celebrities by performing Olympic-style dives.

But being in front of the camera is far from Alexandra's only interest. Alexandra was honored by the ACLU of Southern California as their '2005 Activist of the Year' for her long history of fighting for the environment, voting rights and peace issues. In 1997, the United Nations commended Alexandra for her environmental activism. In 1999, she won the International Green Cross award. She walked across America for over five weeks on The Great Peace March for Global Nuclear Disarmament, and has been arrested over a dozen times for protesting at the Nevada Nuclear Test Site.

Alexandra has been driving electric cars since 1990. She is a vegan and will not use any products tested on animals. She has traveled to Nicaragua with a medical aid group, to Lousiana to help animals after Hurricane Katrina, to South Africa to register voters and to Sierra Leone to promote family planning. She is also a certified EMT (Emergency Medical Technician), has been registering voters once a week for 15 years and speaks fluent French. A dedicated and accomplished athlete as well, in 1997, Alexandra spent nine months training for the World Ironman Triathlon Championships in Hawaii (a grueling 2.44 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and 26.2 mile marathon), which she completed in 13:18:52. In June, Alexandra swam around Key West, a 12.5 mile race.

In addition, Alexandra wrote, produced and hosted "Jampacked," an educational film broadcast on PBS about the human overpopulation crisis, which has won several environmental awards. She followed that up with "The Cost of Cool -- Finding Happiness in a Materialistic World," which won a CineEagle award. In 1986, she (along with producer/manager Daniel Sladek) founded Young Artists United, a successful non-profit organization dedicated to helping teenagers in need. Alexandra has also personally spoken, classroom-by-classroom, to over 6,000 Los Angeles teenagers on the issue of human overpopulation. In 2000, Alexandra and her twin sister Caroline were the recipients of the Christopher Street West Rainbow Award for their ongoing support of gay and lesbian rights. In spite of her busy acting career, Alexandra continues to find time for social activism and athletic competition.
