Career

Alexandra Beaton, who is considered as one of the upcoming young talents of the Canadian film Industry, became active from 2005. However, she is known more for her dancing skills rather than acting. She is known to practice several dance forms, and her strengths are mostly in lyrical and jazz.

She had also taken part in the Shaw Festival, which is considered to be a significant nonprofit Canadian theatre festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake,¬¬¬¬ Ontario, the second largest repertory theatre company in all of North America.

Being an award winning competitive dancer, Beaton—whose strengths are in lyrical and jazz—got the splendid opportunity to put her dance skills to the test when she started acting in the teen television drama ‘The Next Step.’ Concurrently she is continuing her university studies as a scholar.

Major Works

Alexandra Beaton’s career in acting started with the 2006 American epic fantasy film ‘300.’ The film, which is based on the 1998 comic series of the same name, revolves around a king named King Leonidas, played by Gerard Butler, and 300 Spartans whom he leads into battle against a Persian King Xerxes, who has an army of more than 300,000 soldiers. Despite being less in number, the Spartans refuse to surrender and possessing superior fighting skills, fight well, defeating waves after waves of the Persian army.

Even though Xerxes approaches Leonidas asking him to surrender in exchange of wealth and power, Leonidas instead mocks him, and soon, his small but strong army, crushes the Persian army once and for all. It received mixed reviews from critics worldwide. A sequel to the film was also released in 2014 named ‘300: Rise of an Empire.’

Another one of Beaton’s popular works is the Canadian teen drama series ‘The Next Step.’ The series, which is filmed in Toronto, Canada, is a story about a group of skilled dancers attending a dance studio named The Next Step Dance Studio. The series started airing on the Family Channel on 8 March 2013. Its premier had a larger audience than any other series since the launch of the channel in 1988. The show won the Shaw Rocket Prize for Children in 2013, and got nominated for Best Children’s or Youth Fiction Program or Series in 2014.

Because of its popularity across Canada, BBC Worldwide licensed the series to several international broadcasters on 8 January 2014. These included the Disney Channel in Australia, CBBC in the UK, and Hulu in the US. It has had four seasons so far.

Beaton, throughout the series, portrays the character of Emily, a talented dancer as well as an overprotective sister of two other dancers. In the first season, she is shown to be quite an arrogant and inconsiderate person, but after her humiliation, she is shown to change. The second season focuses mainly on her dating life, though at the end, she is forced to leave the studio because of an injury. Beaton apparently gave her best as it was because of this role that she could step into limelight and gain immense popularity.

Alexandra Beaton is very fond of her family and spends most of her time with her parents and her sister. She has also stayed out of any controversies related to her career or her personal life.
