Like Alexandra Vandernoot is to Hertz, so the Belgians are to the French. “We Try Harder” might well be the national motto, and the sentiment of going the extra distance is certainly evident in the work ethic of Brussels-born career actress Alexandra Vandernoot. American audiences are primarily aware of Alexandra as fair maiden Tessa Noel on the sword-swinging series Highlander, but the citizens of France know and fear Alexandra as the upstart maverick who bravely bares what prissy Parisian misses are too chicken to show. Alexandra’s daring disrobings in L’Ange tombe du ciel (1999), Charmant garçon (2000), and Gangsters (2002) have French cineastes shaking in their boots–and she’ll shiver your timbers, too.
