Brandi Alexander joins the cast of the critically acclaimed espionage crime drama series The Romeo Section in season two. Though you may already know Brandi from Fifty Shades of GreyCanada’s Next Top Model, and Deal or No Deal, her new leading role on The Romeo Section highlights another new benchmark in her career. The show is created by renowned show-runner Chris Haddock (IntelligenceDa Vinci’s Inquest) and has already won an outstanding number of Leo awards. The second season airs at 9:00 pm on CBC TV and will also be airing on Netflix this fall.

The Romeo Section’s season two will consist of 10 new one-hour episodes in which the players get played, the powerful stumble, and the meek rise to power. Brandi plays Lana, the skeptical girlfriend of a downtown east side drug dealer and manager to the front for his heroin business. Lana reunites with her old flame Rufus, played by Juan Riedinger (NarcosR.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour), when he is sent to make a deal with her current boyfriend. The show also stars Andrew Airlie who returns this season portraying the role of “Wolfgang McGee’. Chris Haddock sums up his thoughts on what the fans can expect from The Romeo Section’s second season with just three simple words: “It gets nasty.”

Brandi has also starred in many other popular TV shows which include MotiveBlackstone, Girlfriend’s Guide to DivorceSupernatural, and Smallville, to name a few. A ground-breaking point in Brandi’s career came when she was given the opportunity to be a part of the frenzy that came with the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon.  Fifty Shades of Grey is an erotic romance novel, the first installment in the Fifty Shades trilogy. Fifty Shades of Grey has topped best-seller lists around the world, selling over 125 million copies worldwide by June 2015. Brandi played the flight attendant in the film adaptation of the book who informs Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) on the plane that she has a seat in first class as she is on her way to visit her mother after a whirlwind of her experiences with Christen Grey. Brandi says, “Playing a role on this film to an audience with such an enormous following was definitely an experience I will never forget!”

Each of the game show players was so very unique and the results were always surprising!”
