Early life

Alexander was born Suzana S. Drobnjaković in Los Angeles, California. She began acting in school productions at the seventh grade. She was also an ice skater, but had to stop due to an injury to her knee. She continued acting through high school and college, and then moved to New York to act in summer stock and Shakespeare festivals. She graduated from the University of Southern California's School of Cinema-Television before going on to have a successful acting career in both TV and film.

Career

Alexander was a regular on two short-lived series: the medical drama Presidio Med and ABC's twenty-something drama Wasteland. She achieved widespread media attention and critical praise when she appeared on the fourth season of Dawson's Creek as Gretchen Witter, dating the title character, and in an episode of the short-lived Fox comedy series Greg the Bunny, playing the part of a lesbian TV Guide reporter and shared an onscreen kiss with Sarah Silverman. Alexander has also appeared in the films Lucky 13, and All Over the Guy as well as He's Just Not That Into You, the independent movie Last Lullaby, and Yes Man starring Jim Carrey.

Before being cast as Caitlin Todd on NCIS , she appeared on CSI as District Attorney Robin Childs, in the episode, "Alter Boys". Her role on NCIS ended in May 2005 and she had a small role in 2006's Mission Impossible III.

She joined the cast of The Nine in the role of Nick's ex-wife. She also appeared in one episode of Friends ("The One with Joey's Interview"), playing a Soap Opera Digest reporter who interviewed Joey.
