Alexandra Beaton plays the character of Emma Young in Spiral.
Actress Alexandra Beaton has been performing for longer than she can remember. She has danced and sung her way across many stages, most recently, Ross Petty’s Christmas Panto, Sleeping Beauty. She has died in Gerard Butler’s arm in the blockbuster 300 and put fear in dancers everywhere as Emily, the tough as nails dancer and now head of, The Next Step. Alexandra loves to try and find the best, and the worst, in all the characters she gets to play and this is one of the reasons she is so excited to have the opportunity to bring Emma to life. Emma is a complicated young woman thrust into an even more complicated situation, one that will take her down many different paths. She must rely not only on her wit but on those around her as well, too bad not everyone is who they seem. Spiral is one of those projects that not only make you a better actor but also a better person. Alex is so grateful to have met everyone who worked on the project and can’t wait to be able to share what they all made. She really hopes you love it as much as she does.
Like Emma, Alexandra attended University and is a proud graduate of The University of Guelph’s 2016 class, though she would like to note that Emma would have out studied her in every way. She is also an avid reader, runner, dog lover, and traveler. You can almost always find her listening to early 2000’s music on her iPod on set.
