    Aspiring Bond girl: Alex Rice
    From Hollywood

    Posted: January 08, 2004 - 3:17pm EST
    by: Roscoe Pond / Actor

    HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - In a feature article in last summer’s Tongue magazine, published by 1970s rocker Gene Simmons, "No Reservation: Native actress Alex Rice Scalps Hollywood," Rice stated, "I want to be the first Native American to host Saturday Night Live. I want to be the first Native American Bond girl.

    "Entertainment has a Lucy Lui, a Jennifer Lopez and a Halle Berry, but they don’t have an Alex Rice yet," she added. Even though it has been a rough road for her as a Mohawk Indian from Quebec, Canada, she just may become that Bond girl.

    When Rice first came to Hollywood, casting agents turned her away because they felt there was no audience for Natives in mainstream films. That didn’t stop Rice, she has found her very own following after her feature film debut in the critically acclaimed independent film "The Doe Boy" (2001). The film won numerous awards after coming out of the Sundance film festival and it gave Rice exposure to filmmakers not only in Hollywood but around the continent as well. A fan from Canada said, "To you Alex Rice, may all your dreams come true and a whole lot more. Thanks for being an inspiration to some of our people here. You’re inspiring a lot of young people who have similar dreams. Keep up the good work."

    Rice has made guest star appearances in several TV shows including, "Spin City" (ABC), "Strong Medicine" (Lifetime), "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS) and "The Sopranos" (HBO). She landed the role of the beautiful Janet Pete in PBS mysteries, "Skinwalkers", "Coyote Waits" and "Thief of Time." Based on the best selling Tony Hillerman novels, Rice was perfectly cast. She portrayed a rookie public defender just out of law school that caught the eye of Jim Chee played by Adam Beach. Rice went on to win the best actress award from the American Indian Film Institute in San Francisco for her role as Janet in "Coyote Waits."

    Rice has been seen in the critically acclaimed ABC mini-series "Dreamkeeper." Rice gives a delicate and modulated performance as She Crosses the Water. Rice can also be seen in other films including, "Chasing Indigo", "The War Bride", "Thunderbird" and in "Lewis and Clark: Great Journey West" as the legendary Sacagawea. Last October, the Vancouver International Film Festival premiered "On the Corner" starring Rice in the lead female role. She portrayed Angel, a prostitute addicted to heroin desperately trying to get her life back in order. Rice said in the Tongue magazine article, "I remember reading the script the first time around and shedding a lot of tears. I immediately thought ‘If they want me, I’m going to do it.’ Once I got it, I was totally committed and devoted." That is exactly what she did with the role of Angel and earned the best performance to date of her promising career. Critic Diane Burgess said, "Alex Rice gives a remarkable performance as Angel, a woman whose toughness emerges from denial that is increasingly stripped away."

    What is next for Rice is unknown but it seems she has the talent and the beauty to reach that dream of being the first Native Bond girl.

    Woo Hoo!

    Alex Rice IS a babe! I have met her and she is very personable and professional.

    I believe she will be a good representative for Indian and First Nations people in "the Industry."

    It's about time 007 met his match with a beautiful Indian woman!

    Good luck Alex!

          ayyyyyyyye!!!

          I think it's tough though, for Native actors/actresses to make it in Hollywood. It's hard to get away from the stereotypical roles, always playing indians, or they get shafted with small roles, with little or no bearing on the main story.

          But......still, power to em for trying!!!!!!!! Kudos if they make it too, and for what roles they DO get into.......ya gotta give props for their talent and renderings.

          GO NATIVE ACTORS/ACTRESSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :p
          Rice is hot but 2 old to be a bond babe. Jibby can be any day talk about bond babe matterial.

            Maybe I'm opening a can of worms here, but being married to one, I don't think James Bond can handle an Indian woman. He isn't exactly one to let a woman tell him what to do.

                    Haha!! It's bad enough that you hate on me because of the undeniable intelligence difference between you and I, but to try and deny something that is pure fact?

                    Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity. I'll say it once and I'll say it again...

                      Why are you rolling your eyes? Is it because you like to pass judgement or is it because you're so insecure with yourself? (which most people who make comments like that are). Anyway, if you think you are all that by cutting down, a gorgeous, beautiful Ojib, why don't you post a pic of yourself?

                          Geez! You got some nerve dont you! I cant believe you think you can get away with saying something like that and get away with it. Obviously--you must be jealous and have issues. Jibby does look like that. She is one of the hottest chicks i've seen. When people put other people down its just a reflection of what they think of themselves.



                          Just remember this--when you judge others you judge yourself.
