Alexandra Boussiou grew up in the eighties. In Athens it was the golden age of VHS rentals. An only child with working parents, she was brought up mainly by the VHS player. Her parents didn’t believe in parental guidance when it came to films, so she discovered a wide range of melodramas, slapstick comedies and thrillers by the age of 12. She has studied Transmedia for Arts, Film and Design in Sint Lukas University in Brussels, Opera performance, Accounting and Finance and is an EAVE 2010 graduate and an ACE member since 2012.
She is a member of the European Film Academy and an awarded member of the Greek Film Academy. She adores watching films, developing scripts, working on characters; She is completely bored of safe, office work. She loves film sets and can be very creative when it comes to organizing contracts, money and crews for a noble cause. She gets very proud when she works in films she likes very much.
