Alexandra for Schön! Magazine

Alexandra has a new interview and photoshoot with Schön! Magazine. She looks beautiful! You can read her interview below.

SCHON MAGAZINE – Whether it is by her versatile acting, mesmerising blue eyes or her tremendously retweetable tweets – you certainly know Alexandra Daddario. From blockbuster babe in Baywatch and San Andreas to self-conflicted honeymooner in HBO’s new dark comedy series The White Lotus, Daddario continues to prove that she really can do it all — and do it authentically. Perhaps it is her approach to each character — “liv[ing] in the world that they live in” — that equips Daddario with an undeniable realness. The actress sat down with Schön! for a candid conversation about life in her 30s and the details of her various acting experiences over the years.

Hello – so excited to speak with you! How are you doing these days?

I’m okay. I’m doing better. You know, it’s been wild to watch everything opening. Getting the vaccines, then suddenly, wow, everything is back — traffic’s back, and people are going out to dinner. You have a little bit of whiplash.

I’ve heard people say, oh, you know what? I needed this. For me, it wasn’t like that. It was very challenging, and I’m really relieved to see everything open. I feel a lot more comfortable in the world now. I think as far as perspective, I just feel grateful for the things that we took for granted before.

Let’s throw it back to 2003 and All My Children. Did you always know you wanted to act? And how would you say soap opera life is different or similar to your other roles?

I sort of did know that I always wanted to act, but being an actress seemed like not a real job to me as a kid. It seemed like something that, like, aliens did on another planet. In the world that I grew up in, it seemed like actors were manufactured in a lab. Being a normal person, you could never be an actor.

I had this love for it from a very young age. I loved going to acting class — it was very cathartic for me, leaning into your emotions and doing these scenes. And in all these scenes, you were taught a lot about what it meant to be human, and they were all these interesting stories.

The soap opera life was great. I was 16 when I booked the soap — this was almost 20 years ago now. It’s all shifted, but it taught me how to memorise lines, how to find my light, how cameras worked, and how to kiss a boy on camera. Like, all these bizarre things that you must do, it got me used to it, and I was grateful for that job.

Fast forwarding, let’s talk about your time as Lisa Tragnetti on True Detective. What attracted you to that role?

I think that as an actor, there are times where you aren’t taken seriously, and you struggle — like everybody. I think especially at that time in my life, I was having trouble getting in for certain auditions.

With True Detective, I just thought, ‘I want to work with these great people.’ I didn’t know what was going to happen. The role was initially smaller, and I actually auditioned for a different role — I didn’t think that it was going to be as big of a deal for me as it ended up being. For me, it was just a credit… Something I could learn from. That was sort of how I approached it.
