In Season 5, it was revealed that she was a lesbian.
Alex first appeared in Season 3 as school bully and “bad boy” Jay Hogart’s equally rebellious girlfriend.
She first began acting in 1998, winning guest roles on television shows like I Was a Sixth Grade Alien.
Before being on Degrassi: The Next Generation, she had a recurring role on the Disney Channel show In a Heartbeat.
Following this, Alex came out as a lesbian to Jay, when Jay offered to be “a quick rebound” though he later backed off and was sincere in his efforts in cheering her up.
