Alexandria Benford is a vibrant Baltimore, Maryland native who is currently based in New York City. Alexandria has been involved in the arts since the tender age of five. From Tap dancing to karate, Alexandria was involved in a plethora of activities until she found her love for the stage. Attending late night rehearsals and watching her mom star in Trouble in Mind at Arena Players theater sparked Alexandria’s curiosity for the arts and at the age of 10, Alexandria starred in her first play, A Wonderful Life, at the same theater. That summer, Alexandria had officially caught the “acting bug.”
Eventually, Alexandria decided to pursue theater at a top-ranking high school for the arts, George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology. There, she studied improv, combat fighting, Shakespeare and other fundamentals of acting.
In 2015 she took her talents to NYC to pursue acting full-time. In her first year, she went on to perform in her first theater tours throughout the East Coast in One Night and Four Hearts.
