It was due to her sister Patricia that she got the wonderful opportunity to work on Last Exit to Brooklyn, where she played the role of a trans sex worker known as Georgette. She had accompanied her sister Patricia to New York, when her sister was up for a role in the file and was also pregnant at that time. During one of the interviews, Alexis said, “They asked me if I wanted to read for a role because they knew that I’d done a drag thing at one of my friend’s clubs.” “I ended up getting the job, basically through my sister. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have been in New York. But nobody gives you a job, you’ve got to earn it on your own. I would never want anyone to think that there’s some kind of cachet to my name.”
