Alexa doesn’t see her father often. When she was 8, he was going through rehab, so most of their time together was spent at AA meetings. I was sitting there and listening to how people were talking about their problems and the hardships they went through, - Alexa recalls. These encounters helped her gain valuable life experience which proved to be extremely useful in her acting career.
My entire Mexican family spoke Spanglish – half English half Spanish. I have never forgotten about my roots, - Alexa confessed.
After yet another rejection, Alexa would find comfort in music, her main passion from early childhood. Her debut singles Girl Like Me and Closer are quite popular among soul lovers.
It’s challenging going from one audition to the other and hearing only ‘no, no, no’. It’s difficult to move forward and to keep believing in yourself. Not everyone can handle this, - she says.
Alexa had to postpone her music career for the sake of shooting for the series. It was really difficult, but I had to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to Euphoria. When the shooting was over, I was happy to come back to my favorite occupation, - Demie says.
All the characters are extremely intriguing. It was a challenge – we have all been kicked out of our comfort zones and that’s awesome. That’s what acting is all about, actually, - Alexa shares, The series showcases teenagers and their issues in a very blunt and truthful way. On the one hand, it’s art, on the other, it’s life as we all know it.
