Alexandra Ainsworth was born on October 28, 1992 in Oklahoma City, OK. Lexi, a natural entertainer from birth, made her first acquaintance with the stage at the age of 3 through her involvement with Ballet Oklahoma. Three years later, she made her theatrical debut, performing in various Lyric Theater productions. Later, she landed the lead role of Scout in the Actors Equity production of “To Kill a Mockingbird”.
Having a passion for amusing people wherever she went, it was evident that this would lead her to a career in the entertainment industry. It was after attending a film camp in New York at age 11 that she developed an interest in film and television acting . Furthering this pursuit, she attended an acting boot camp in Los Angeles where she caught the eye of an agent, who sent her out on her first audition, a national Barbie commercial, which she in fact booked.
After other commercials and industrials, she gained the lead role of Caroline in the AFI short film “Caroline Crossing” and Grace Budd, opposite of Patrick Bauchau in the independent film “The Gray Man,” both of which were accepted to various film festivals in the U.S. and abroad. Making her way into television, Lexi co-stared on the NBC series “Medical Investigation” starring Kelly Williams and was a recurring character on WB’s “Gilmore Girls” as Tillie. In 2008 she booked the role of Molly in Universal’s feature film, “Wild Child,” where she plays Emma Roberts’ little sister.
In 2009, Lexi joined the cast of the ABC daytime drama General Hospital as Kristina Corinthos Davis. She quickly became a fan favorite and won the hearts of viewers in her portrayal of the daughter of mob boss Sonny Corinthos and as young girl struggling with the emotional and physical effects of domestic abuse. Her performance won her a 2011 Daytime Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series. Lexi parted ways with General Hospital in the fall of 2011 to pursue other projects.
Lexi’s most recent projects include a starring role in the movie, “So This Is Christmas’ with Vivica A. Fox and guest starring appearances on the television series Criminal Minds and Cougar Town. Lexi can also be seen in the upcoming films “The Bully Chronicles” and “Best Friends Forever.”
