Alexa Davalos may actually be best known for The Chronicles of Riddick and the Clash of the Titans, but her upcoming career is looking pretty strong.
Davalos started film and television career in 2002, with several guest spots on television shows, television movies, and smaller scale indie films. She broke out playing Kyra in Chronicles of Riddick starring Vin Diesel, and she starred in the television show 'Reunion' from 2005 to 2006.
She most recently starred in Clash of the Titans, Defiance, and the Mist, and will next be seen in 'Nina' alongside Zoe Saldana as the titular Nina Simone. The synopsis for Nina is, "The story of the late jazz musician and classical pianist Nina Simone including her rise to fame and relationship with her manager Clifton Henderson." Davalos is also starring in a television show titled Mob City from TNT, and the synopsis for the show is, "About the decades-long battle between Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker and mob figure Mickey Cohen."
The show will start airing at the beginning of next year, but you can catch Nina at the end of this year. Originally positioned as Oscar bait, we haven't heard about a festival schedule for the movie yet, but I'm sure we'll see it sooner rather than later.
