Alexia Fast plays a high school student who hangs out with bullies in her new film 'Blackbird', and she opens up about her own experience with bullying in high school in a new interview.
Alexia Fast was recently seen in 'Jack Reacher'
 
When discussing 'Blackbird' and her character's involvement with bullying, Alexia explained, "I was like, 'Oh, I remember this.' Deanna [her character] is popular and she kind of conforms and I kind of modelled her after some of the people that bullied me in high school."
 
Rising star Connor Jessup also stars in 'Blackbird', and he plays a 'goth' kid named Sean who has trouble fitting in and is the target of 'verbal and physical attacks' from the popular kids in his school. Alexia revealed that in her own life, she was more like Sean in high school than her own character. She explains, "I was kind of like Sean — I wasn't goth but I was very kind of different and I wasn't conforming and that bothered people. I had a bunch of people on my friends list just writing terrible things to me... I don't think I ever really mentioned it to my parents. I kind of just dealt with it on my own. I never really stuck up for myself, because I didn't know what to say or how to say that, so I just kind of continued on throughout high school."

Alexia Fast doesn't need to worry about that now, since her career has been on an upswing in the past few years. After starring in 'The Secret Circle' in 2012, she had a small role in 'Jack Reacher' with Tom Cruise, and recently starred in the TV show 'Red Widow'. She also completed filming on 'Queen of the Night', Atom Egoyan's latest film with Ryan Reynolds, Scott Speedman, and Rosario Dawson. 'Blackbird' opens in limited release in Canada this Friday, and it will hopefully expand to more countries in the next few months.
