Alexis Thorpe~

Alexis Thorpe portrays Cassie, a new arrival in Salem who will unlock an earth-shattering secret on NBC's number one daytime drama, Days of our Lives.

No stranger to daytime television, Thorpe portrayed teen diva Rianna on The Young and the Restless for two years, prior to landing her role on Days of our Lives.

Born in Newport Beach, California, to Joe and Michele Thorpe, Alexis is the oldest of four children. At the age of eight, the acting bug bit her when a childhood friend dragged her along for moral support during her audition for a local production of Annie. After watching her friend audition, Alexis gained the confidence to get up on stage and try it herself. A star was born and she ended up wining the title role, which, needless to say, didn't sit very well with her young friend.

While attending high school in Esperanza, Thorpe juggled her academic curriculum with cheerleading, golf, basketball and lead roles in several high school productions. Her first professional role was portraying Wendy in the musical Peter Pan at the Canyon Lake Theatre.

After high school graduation, Alexis was ready to move to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career, but at the strong urging of her father, she enrolled in community college at Fullerton, in California. Her appearance in a workshop production of the musical Assassins caught the eye of an agent, who immediately signed the budding actress. Two weeks later, Thorpe received her SAG card playing a model in the movie The Adventures of Rocky and Bull winkle, directed by Des McAnuff. Thorpe also starred in the Sony Pictures release The Forsaken, portraying a vampiress named Teddy.

Thorpe fell in love with her fiancÚ, actor David Lago, when she played his girlfriend, Rianna, on The Young and Restless.

When Alexis isn't working or planning her wedding to Lago, she enjoys rock climbing, golf, shopping, and exploring her new passion, gardening. She resides in Los Angeles with her 2 dogs (a Boxer named Toby and a Maltese named Samson) and her Himalayan cat named Chloe. Alexis loves being big sister to Lauren (20), Kathryn (13), and her younger brother Joe (15) who stands a staggering 6'7" and, according to Alexis, "Whose talents on the basketball court will make him way more famous than I could ever dream to be."

Alexis has auburn hair and hazel eyes. She celebrates her birthday on April 19th.
