Birthplace:  Detroit, MI

 

 

Bio:

Born Mary Ann McCormack, Alex Reynolds has starred in a multitude of films since the late 1970's, over half of which were directed by Nathan Blackthorne and Jonas Lamont, the actresses preferred directors in early stages of her career.  Numerous films also co-starred Blackthorne, and rumors of a romantic link flooded the tabloids.  Unpublished reports of "personality conflicts" between Reynolds and Blackthorne caused the disillusion of any future pairings after 1984.  In 1982, Reynolds wed Nathan Blackthorne's nephew, James Blackthorne, who subsequently branded his own production company Sunset Studios, in which every subsequent film Reynolds starred in was produced by.   Lamont, who died in 1982, was the husband of legendary actress Lola Lamont, who shared screen time with a reportedly "diva-like" Reynolds in the 1981 blockbuster "The Briar Patch".  Lackluster box office performance and lukewarm reviews for Reynolds' latest film, "Sandman", plus a much publicized divorce from James Blackthorne, sent Reynolds into an unofficial sabatical from the big screen.   The actress wed Blackthornes' business rival, producer Jordan Rydell, CEO of Rydell Productions.  After a brief marriage, the two divorced amidst a smattering of tabloid rumors, mostly speculating that Rydell was jealous of a new business venture Reynolds entered into with her first husband.  A second marriage  Rydell ended shortly after filming wrapped for Angel Assassin 2 after rumors circulated about an on-set romance between her and co-star Scott Kelly, who was later attacked in an anonymous beating that Rydell was momentarily suspected in. Later began work as the sixth actress to portray Faye Richards in the classic daytime soap The Young at Heart.  Coincidentally, Rydell's first wife, Suzanne Rogers,  was the second actress to portray the character in the late seventies. After another (the third) marriage to Jordan Rydell, Reynolds began work on the fourth installment of the successful action series Angel Assassin.
