Are you a 90s horror fan? Or maybe you were obsessed with America’s favorite Italian family on Everybody Loves Raymond. Whatever the case may be, we can all agree that scream queen Alex Meneses is indeed a queen. The actress and model is best known for her roles in Jane the Virgin, The Wall of Mexico and being everyone’s favorite girlfriend on Everybody Loves Raymond. Host Oni Higgins sits down with the queen herself to talk about her most recent role, what life has been like for her and how she is balancing it all!
Alex Meneses in The Wall of Mexico
You might be wondering what Meneses has been up to, but don’t worry, she’s been busy! Her most recent role is in a new film called The Wall of Mexico. Talk about a timely name. Speaking of which, that is what ended up drawing her attention to the film in the first place. When you hear that kind of title, it is safe to assume that it could be a political film. Guess again. Meneses describes this film as a “sexy, young, crazy, artsy film.” This beautifully shot film dives into the Mexican-United States issue that is constantly happening at our borders. However, the wall isn’t the only separations that are explored in this movie. The film is filled with some of our favorite actors. For all the fellow Twilight fans out there, Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) is one of the main leads! You won’t want to miss this.
How she balances it all
All of these roles that she is best known for range widely when it comes to genre. Meneses has a way of balancing it all and making it look effortless. She said, “My life is full. And I love it. Acting is the frosting on the cake for me.” Not only does she love her life, but she loves her job! One of her favorite things from working on The Wall of Mexico set is the banter between all the actors. They are constantly cracking jokes and having a great time.
