Meet the child actor who plays Holly Jonas on Days

Elin Alexander is an American actor from Southern California who was born on 22 April 2014, meaning she is eight years old.

The young actor is bilingual and can speak Lithuanian, Spanish and English; her mom has Hawaiian, Filipino, Korean and Portuguese roots, while her dad is from Lithuania.

Alexander began auditioning for roles at five years old when she started tagging along to older sister Evey’s auditions. She quickly landed a national commercial that led her to earn a Screen Actors Guild membership. The child actor was born to be in the spotlight. “Elin is definitely in her element with this business with all the glitz and glamour she loves it all,” her parents shared on her Instagram.

DOOL is Elin’s first soap opera role but her other acting experiences include television series The Baxters, where she played Maddie Baxter, and short film In The Absence Of Eden. For the short film, Alexander won a Women Making A Scene supporting actress award.
