Lexa Doig is a Canadian actress. Her parents held season tickets to their local theatre, and Lexa was inspired to begin acting after seeing a production of "Porgy and Bess" at the age of nine. She dropped out of high school in grade 13, did modeling and commercial work, and hosted YTV's "Video & Arcade Top 10" (1991) with friend Gordon Michael Woolvett.
Her first professional job came at the age of 19, when she was cast opposite William Shatner and Greg Evigan in "TekWar". She went on to appear in several projects for both the big and small screens, including "CI5: The New Professionals" (1998), Jungleground (1995) and No Alibi (2000), before landing a lead role in Jason X (2001), the 10th installment in the Friday the 13th series. She has also completed guest stints on several popular television shows, including "Traders" (1996), "Earth: Final Conflict" (1997), "The Chris Isaak Show" (2001), along with a recurring role in Seasons 9 and 10 of Stargate SG-1 (where she co-stared with her husband Michael Shanks who she met on Star-Crossed). Doig's theatre credits include "Arsenic and Old Lace" and "Romeo and Juliet".
"I walked out an the audition absolutely convinced I had blown it, and then my agent called to tell me I got the part. I was leaping around my parents' house and screaming at the top of my lungs. I knew then I'd chosen the right profession and I've never looked back since"
