Not seen, but heard, she lends her voice to Family Guy. She told FHM, I dont know why, but Seth MacFarlane really likes the sound of my voice. Ill never understand that. He just liked me and they call me back all the time to do different things.
Alexandra Breckenridge also had a guest role on American Horror Story. She told the LA Times, Now that the season of [American Horror Story] is over, lets just say Ive been eating a lot more lately. She said of her dyed red hair, I never learned why, but [Ryan Murphy, the creator] has a thing for redheads. Its a vampy red, like Jessica Rabbit. She added of her oral sex scene, Putting your head repeatedly in someones crotch for hours isnt pleasant.
She added, though, Its nothing like my personality, Ive never acted that way. Its tricky, being that overtly sexual is not as easy as you would thinkIve been getting some text messages from guys Ive dated asking me out again. I guess they saw me masturbating on television and they were like, oh crap (younghollywood.com).
Alexandra has several tattoos that are ultimately covered up for on-screen projects. I have a huge fairy on my leg that I dont really like. I got it when I was 18 and nowIve just got this huge fairy on my leg.
Alexandra Breckenridge said of acting, I dont want to get stuck on a medical show for seven years. Some people would give their left pinkie toe for that, but I just want to enjoy my work. And about Hollywood? Theres a lot of fakeness in Hollywood, and a lot of girls are out to get something. But Ive never been like that (FHM.com).
She is also known for her photography, which has been featured in several Los Angeles galleries.
