Alexandra L. Doig (born June 8, 1973) is a Canadian actress, known by her stage name Lexa Doig. She is perhaps best known for her role as Rommie in the science fiction TV series Andromeda, and has appeared on the Stargate SG-1 as a recurring character. At sixteen, she enrolled in a modelling course and was immediately picked up by an agent. Doig did commercials and model work, before dropping out of high school during her final year to pursue an acting career. She worked on stage productions of Romeo and Juliet and Arsenic and Old Lace while auditioning for film and television roles. Doig had a small role on Gene Roddenberry's Earth: Final Conflict, but her first significant role was on William Shatner's series TekWar. Doig played "Cowgirl", a specialist in tracking and obtaining information from the net. "I walked out of 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." Doig landed the role of Tina Backus on the short-lived series CI5: The New Professionals in 1998. In 2000 Doig was in another Roddenberry series, Andromeda. She portrayed the artificial intelligence of the title ship in dual roles - as seen on viewscreens or holograms, and a separate android avatar called Rommie. In 2001, Doig was the female lead in the horror film Jason X. Doig also appeared in several episodes for the ninth and tenth seasons of Stargate SG-1 in a recurring role as Dr. Carolyn Lam. She also has a recurring role as college professor Wendy Paulson in the second season of The 4400. Doig was born in Toronto, Ontario, the daughter of a Filipina mother, Gloria, and a father of Irish and Scottish descent, David. She was raised in Toronto, where her family held season tickets to their local theatre. Doig enjoys reading, rollerblading, and playing RPG computer games and Dungeons & Dragons. She wanted to be an actress at the age of nine after seeing a production of Porgy and Bess. After working with husband-to-be and guest star Michael Shanks on Andromeda, in the episodes Star Crossed in 2001 and Day of Judgement, Day of Wrath in 2003, the two actors got married on August 2 of the same year. They have two children.
