Lex Scott Davis found fame playing Toni Braxton in the R&B singer's biopic, "Unbreak My Heart" (Lifetime, 2016) before landing a recurring role in the TV adaptation "Training Day" (CBS, 2017- ). Born in Baltimore, MD in 19921, Davis began performing aged just three and later honed her talents at her hometown's African-American community theatre. After studying Dance and Physical Therapy at Drexel University, she attended the New York Film Academy and made her acting debut in crime drama short "Two Strangers" (2014). That same year she starred in and co-wrote "Colorblind" (2014), a short film exploring race relations, while in 2015 she made the leap to television with a brief cameo in relationship sitcom "The Exes" (TVLand, 2011-15) and added "The Reunion" (2015), a short about a sexual assault at a teenage party, to her list of credits. Having appeared as an extra in NWA story "Straight Outta Compton" (2015), Davis then enjoyed far more screentime in another music biopic when she was cast as husky-voiced R&B diva Toni Braxton in "Unbreak My Heart" (Lifetime, 2016). Co-produced by Braxton herself, the TV movie became the Lifetime network's highest-rated production since the similarly-themed "Whitney" (Lifetime, 2015) the year previously, and saw Davis earn rave reviews. Davis then appeared in her first recurring role as Justin Cornwell's smart but cynical wife Alyse Craig in "Training Day" (CBS, 2017-), the adaptation of the same-named 2001 crime thriller starring Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke.

I noticed Philadelphia was lacking what I personally needed in an agent, I was also modeling a little at the time. I had bad luck and dealt with some representation that was not the best. The reality was that the big opportunities did not exist in Baltimore. This is something I am very passionate about and down the line I hope to go back to Baltimore and rebuild schools. The two major places where I grew up dancing and acting do not exist anymore and it is hard for me to even talk about with girls who reach out to me and ask me what to do. It hurts that I can’t give them real answers. Not everyone can just skip town like I did, which is why I want to figure out a way of creating new arts programs for children in Baltimore who want to do what I did. (Source: theimagista.com)

Imagista: You have a lot of new projects coming out including The First Purge and SuperFly. Can you tell me a little bit about each of these projects? (Source: theimagista.com)

I’m actually currently in North Carolina, and I’ve been here for two weeks starting a new project, a new show for Netflix. So, I’m in production right now. It’s weird here, because everyone’s kind of living normal again and in LA, not so much. It’s an adjustment, but I’m still taking the same precautions as I have been the past year and a half. So yeah, that’s what I’ve been up to: getting adjusted to the North Carolina humidity and heat. (Source: schonmagazine.com)

I was originally a dancer. I grew up dancing all styles of dance since I was three years old, and was a dance major in college. But in my third year in the school as a dance major, I felt like I reached my cap as a dancer, and I wanted to figure out how I could perform for the rest of my life. I decided to switch into acting because with dance, you get to a certain point where your body doesn’t quite move how it used to, and the opportunities to perform seem to go away with age. Some people become either a choreographer or instructor, and I had zero desire to do either of those. So, I got out of that, transferred schools, and moved to New York and started acting.
