Hotel Babylon, (series three)

Alexandra plays Emily James, "Head of PR" in the UK BBC One TV Drama Hotel Babylon, (series three). She tricks the staff into thinking she's a journalist before revealing she is actually the head of public relations. Emily James is a well-connected, upper class "English Rose" (much to the disgust of the pretentious head receptionist Anna Thornton-Wilton), privately educated young woman who comes from the highest pedigree within the hotel industry. Her father is an hotelier of international renown and prestige, yet Emily wants to find her own feet within this environment. But there are hints that Emily is a little off the rails and a bit of a wild child.
