Jaimie Alexander has joined the cast of Last Stand , working alongside former action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Alexander only played a supporting role as the warrior Sif in Thor but she was more memorable than simply being the eye-candy in the Norse god's entourage.
In Last Stand it sounds like she has a beefier role to match her similarly beefy co-star, playing the female lead as small-town cop Sarah Torrance.
The plot sees sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger), Torrance (Alexander), plus cops played by Rodrigo Santoro and Zach Gilford forced to defend their border town when an escaped drug dealer makes a bid for freedom into Mexico.
Expect to see more of Alexander as her star continues to rise. And we don't mean when somebody hacks her phone.
Last Stand shoots on location in New Mexico in two weeks' time and opens early in 2013.
