Don’t mess with Jaimie Alexander! “I collect knives, so I always have a very small one on me,” says the star of the NBC drama Blindspot (which returns February 29 at 10 p.m.). “I’d never want to use it, but I’m skilled!” The Texas native, engaged to actor Peter Facinelli, lets Us Weekly take a closer look at her Valentino cross-body satchel.
On the Hop
“Because I wear so many fake tattoos on the show, I can’t sweat too much. I’ll break out my jump rope between takes to get my heart rate up.”
“I’ve got a Sharpie and a black pen because I like to draw. I do the details with the black ballpoint. It kind of mellows you out when you’re on an airplane.”
“I make my own crackers with almonds and sunflower seeds and carry them in a plastic bag. It’s great because then I have no excuse to eat badly.”
Pump It Up
“I have a texturizing powder from Evo because sometimes my hair will just go flat. I’ll sprinkle some of that in my hair to give it some texture and then push it around. Short hair looks better if it’s messed up.”
What a Gem
“My fiancé’s children [Luca, 18, Lola, 13, and Fiona, 9] gave me a really cool key chain this Christmas. It’s a little amethyst rock, and it’s my good-luck charm.”
