Who is Alex Zedra?
The three letters G are exactly what describes this young lady – gaming, guns and glamour. Alex Zedra is First-Person-Shooter (FPS) gamer, she loves guns and often shows how glamorous she can be by wearing stunning dresses, and having her hair perfectly done.
Alex gained international fame, and has an army of followers on her social media accounts, however, she is perhaps known best as the real-life model for Mara, the character from the video game “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare”.
Early life, family, and education
Born Alex Rogers under the zodiac sign of Scorpio on 3 November 1991, in Conway, South Carolina USA, she holds American nationality and her ethnicity is White. Many assumed that she’s a Venezuelan since the character Mara is from Venezuela, however, the truth is that Alex has no connection with this country.
She was raised in her hometown, and as she said, she’s a proud south girl. It seems that she respects the privacy of her family since she hasn’t shared anything about her parents and siblings, except that she has a younger brother named Seth.
He also likes guns and games, so the two shared their love for gaming and often played video games together. Alex’s favorite was “World of Warcraft”, and she especially enjoyed FPS games.
Speaking of her educational background, Alex attended a local high school, and upon matriculating in 2009, enrolled at Palo Alto College, from which she graduated with a BA degree in 2013.
It is known that after she graduated, Alex worked as a pastry chef, and later launched her modeling career before she devoted her time to playing video games and streaming on Twitch. Although many of her fans believe that she was in the army, because of her shooting skills, Alex isn’t a trained soldier.
Alex loved guns and gaming from an early age, so when she joined the streaming platform Twitch, she quickly gained the attention of other users. She began playing and streaming games such as “Battle Royale” and “World of Warcraft”. Her proficiency in the video game “World of Warcraft” earned her the nickname ‘Zedra’, which now she uses as her surname.
Alex rose to prominence almost overnight after the publishers of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” employed her in 2019. As mentioned, she played the character of Mara, and this shot her popularity into the skies.
In the following year, Alex made her first movie appearance as Betty Jo in the adventure horror “Strain 100“. She had the lead female role opposite Matt Carriker and Jemma Dallender in this low-budget movie about flesh-eating zombies, which was poorly rated by the audience, however, according to critics, Alex showed some enviable acting skills.
Alex is active on several social media platforms and she has numerous followers. Her Instagram account has been followed by over a million and she’s posted more than 1000 times, mostly featuring her shooting. Regarding her glamorous releases, there are numerous photographs in which she poses in beautiful, formal dresses, with make-up and her hair up in a bun, which leaves the impression that Alex is not all about shooting and guns, but that she also has a ladylike side.
