The first of identical twins, Alexandra Paul was born in New York, New York. She grew up in New England and went to the Groton Academy in Groton, Massachusetts. As an athletic child, she enjoyed swimming and horseback riding.
 
Alexandra began modeling when she was 16 years old. She graduated with honors from Groton Academy, very fluent in French and well read. Alexandra takes her personal interest in social and political issues seriously. In 1997, the United Nations praised Alexandra for her environmental activism. In 1999, she received the International Green Cross award. She has been arrested many times for protesting at a Nevada Nuclear Test Site, and has walked across America for over five weeks on The Great Peace March for Global Nuclear Disarmament.
 
To express concern for the future of our planet, Alexandra wrote, produced and hosted JAMPACKED, an educational film broadcast on PBS about overpopulation. The film has won several environmental awards. Later she produced her second film, COST OF COOL-FINDING HAPPINESS IN A MATERIALISTIC WORLD. The film won a CineEagle award.
 
The actress drives an electric car, recycles, and installed solar panels on her Malibu residence. She does not use products tested on animals. Alexandra has traveled to Nicaragua with a medical aid group as well as to South Africa to register voters. Alexandra is a certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).
 
Her athletic ability led her to train for World Ironman Triathlon Championships in 1997. Alexandra trained nine months before the big event. She appeared on "Regis and Kathy Lee" on Monday, December 1997 to discuss the Ironman Triathlon that was held in Hawaii on October 18, 1997. It consisted of a grueling 2.44 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run. She talked about her training and introduced her identical twin sister Caroline, who is a firefighter for the San Francisco fire department. Her brother Jonathan and dad Mark also appeared on the show. Although held in October, the Ironman Triathlon was shown taped on NBC, Saturday, December 20, 1997. 
 
Alexandra helped to create the "Rock 'N' Roll Marathon" (along with Frank Marshall, Steve Scott, Uta Pippig and Frank Shorter). The annual marathon's first contest was held June 21, 1998 in San Diego, California. The marathon was held to raise awareness of Leukemia. Alexandra ran in behalf of Paul Iacono, a young boy who had Leukemia.  
 
The gifted actress has quite an impressive resume. Alexandra is best known for her role as lifeguard Lieutenant Stephanie Holden on the syndicated Baywatch for 5 seasons. Although she had planned to go on to college after high school, her agent sent her on auditions. Alexandra got her big acting break at 18 on national TV in a leading movie role on ABC's Paper Dolls. Credits also include American Flyers (Kevin Costner), Prey for the Chameleon, Dragnet (Tom Hanks, Dan Aykroyd), Echo, Eight Million Ways To Die, American Flyer, Christine, and Death Train. More recently, her roles included Rough Air (Eric Roberts), Above and Beyond (Adam Baldwin, Costas Mandylor), Exposure (Ron Silver), Redemption of the Ghost (Diane Ladd, John Savage) and Brainiacs (Disney Channel). She hosts a sports series on the Outdoor Life Network, hosts WINNING WOMEN (WE Network) as well as the environmental talk show EARTH TALK TODAY.
 
Alexandra Married actor Ian Murray on September 16, 2000. She met him at a triathlon in 1995. The couple had sent their invitations out on hemp. Alexandra wanted to have a gown made of natural products, so her wedding gown contained no silk. The couple had made their own rings from panned-gold. The guest were not permitted to to bring gifts to reduce the consumption of natural resources. The food was meat-free. The honeymoon included an ocean swim and a Malibu triathlon the following day.
