Confession: we have no idea what the holiday season is like in Asgard. Fortunately, we now have evidence that they fully embrace the holiday spirit in the best possible way. Jaimie Alexander, who plays Sif in Thor and Thor: The Dark World, made a surprise visit to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and spent time with some of the kids there, many of whom won't be able to spend Thanksgiving at home. Dressed in full Sif regalia, Alexander brought gifts, signed autographs and took pictures with the kids as they held her sword and shield.
If, like us, you were already of the opinion that both Thor films could use a lot more Sif screen time, this is just one more reason to appreciate both the character and the actress. You can check out a bunch of pictures from Alexander's visit below, and if you'd like to help these kids, head to the Children’s Hospital website. You can also participate in the Conan O’Brien hosted Crowdrise Celebrity Holiday Challenge.
Based on the Asgardian war goddess devised by comic book creators Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, Lady Sif emerged from 2011's Thor motion picture as something of a breakout character, with fans complaining that the charismatic performer Jamie Alexander didn't get enough screen time and asking that she star in a spinoff of her own. Marvel Studios seems to have listened, with early reports indicating the character's role has been beefed up in the sequel, Thor: The Dark World. In addition to her typical ass-kicking duties, Sif will supposedly become a romantic rival to whoever that earthling doctor or whatever Natalie Portman plays is. Obviously Lady Sif could win any sort of contest under literally any circumstance, so it's safe to assume Portman's character will just, like, go back to wherever they hid her in Avengers and let the third movie be about Sif and Thor punching astro-orcs and making out as space lighting crashes romantically in the distance.
The filming of Thor: The Dark World,is officially underway in Surrey, England, and the U.K. Daily Mail and Splash News have the photos and video to prove it. Though it's nice to see Chris Hemsworth continues his tradition of stomping foes, the new footage and photos principally give Jaimie Alexander some time to shine as the warrior Lady Sif...
