Highlander WorldWide is delighted to welcome another first-time guest to a HLWW event: Alexandra Vandernoot who, of course, essayed the role of Tessa Noel in the first season of Highlander: The Series (before leaving in the fourth episode of the second season). Despite Tessa’s controversial demise, Alexandra returned for several guest-appearances later in the run…
The daughter of distinguished Serbian ballerina Dušanka Sifnios and prize-winning Belgian conductor André Vandernoot, Alexandra was always interested in the creative arts and has often said she couldn’t have imagined being anything other than an actor.
Though best known to international audiences for her role as Tessa Noel in over thirty episodes of Highlander: The Series, Alexandra has ben prolific in many French films and television series. She had recurring roles in Tramontane (1999), La Battante (2005) Ondes de Choc (2007), A Tort ou à Raison (2009-2013), Station Horizon (2015), Innocente (2016), Une Famille Formidable (2018) and Noces Rouges (2018).
Her next on-screen appearances will be in a legal thriller for French television called Bellefond and in the upcoming mini-series Mon Ange.
