Jaimie Alexander only had kind words to say about the show’s guest star and former UFC champ Ronda Rousey.
“I got to have a cool fight scene with Ronda Rousey,” she said during an appearance on morning show Today (via Hollywood.com). “I couldn’t feel my legs for most of it! And 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).
“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,” Alexander continued. “She is just a brick! 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.”
Rousey will guest star in episode 20 of this season’s “Blindspot,” which means it will be several weeks before we get to see the fruits of her acting labor. Next week’s episode will be number 14 of the season, which means we are just six episodes away from seeing Ronda play a prison inmate who knows how to kick butt (what a stretch!). No word yet on if she’ll ever return to the cage for another fight, and by Rousey standards, we may not know for another six months one way or another.
