Actress Jaimie Alexander describes Blindspot fight scene with Ronda Rousey
Former UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey was recently cast in the NBC hit show Blindspot as a woman jailed for transporting weapons across state lines.
On Tuesday, Rousey filmed a scene with actress Jaimie Alexander in New York.
“I got to have a cool fight scene with Ronda Rousey,” she told talk show Today on Wednesday, one day after the filming.
“I couldn’t feel my legs for most of t,” Alexander said.
Joking about the intense shoot, she added, “I actually blacked out, I have no idea (what happened)! I was very sweaty.”
“Some of the punch combos and all that kinda good stuff was great (to do with Ronda),” she continued. “There was one point I had to grab her arm, and her bicep’s the size of my waist! It was so awesome.
She was incredible. I really enjoyed working with her.”
“I’ve never seen a human being throw themselves so hard on the ground in my life. She is just a brick,” she said.
“I was so in awe of her, and she’s so genuine, and kind, and generous. The whole crew loved her, she was just having such a good time, it was such a pleasure.”
