It all started with the fact that in 1997 Alyssa won the model contest, organized each year by Girlfriend magazine. This success allowed Alyssa Sutherland to sign a contract with representatives of the popular Vogue magazine. The girl immediately attracted attention, becoming a successful model. Fashion shows were replaced by photo shoots and participation in the filming of commercials. Sutherland represented world brands Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Chanel and others.

Alyssa graced the covers of Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamor, and others. The girl actively collaborated with eminent photographers.

In 2007, filming of a video advertising the Flake Girl chocolate bar, where Alyssa was shot, was filmed. It was a remake of the already existing popular Cadbury ads, but it also appealed to the audience. Indeed, the viewer was offered a sensual video, where Alyssa sat in a convertible and enjoyed the Flake bar, not noticing that it was raining all around.

This was followed by the “Keep Cadbury British” project, in which Sutherland participated along with other actors working in Cadbury programs. The company's goal was to express its categorical “no” to the sale of the confectionery company to non-British owners. The project was defeated because in 2010, Cadbury was acquired by Kraft Foods (USA).

Actress career

Alyssa can not yet boast of a great filmography, but the cinema of the 35-year-old actress has already brought some success.

The first role of Alyssa Sutherland is an episode in the sensational film of 2006 - “The Devil Wears Prada”. A small role in the dramatic film "Fire Day" also did not bring much success.

In the series “Immortal” (2008), Alyssa also appeared only in the episode. The pilot series "Huge" (2008), where Sutherland had a small role, did not interest the channels and never grew into a series.

The year 2009 finally brought a serious role. Alyssa starred in the movie Do Not Look Up. Critics generally endowed this film with negative reviews, so Alissa did not give fame to this project either. Two years later, Sutherland received an episodic role in the American multi-season procedural drama Law and Order. Special Corps ". In 2012, Alyssa had to play an episodic character in the thriller Vicious Passion. The tape did not bring glory, but the pleasure of working with Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, Tim Rott and Letizia Casta was definitely received by a young actress.

The 2013 film “Theory of Fortune” again failed to bring Alyssa out of the shadows, but then there was a fateful role in the TV series “Vikings”. The unusual combination of the slanting eyes of the actress with bright red hair attracted the attention of the director of the historical saga "Vikings".

Princess Aslaug, played by Alyssa, appeared in the 9th episode of the first season of the project. She was a charming woman who seduced the main character of Ragnar Lodbroka. Having become pregnant from a Viking, Aslaug goes to his hometown of Kattegat in the second season. Ragnar divorced his first wife Lagerta and quickly sealed his alliance with Aslaug. But in front of these spectators a symbolic fight between the ex-wife and the future wife was shown. Aslaug proved to be strong spiritually and physically. Further on the plot, the heroine of Alyssa Sutherland gifted Ragnar with four sons.

The popularity of the “Vikings” grew with each episode, the actors who played roles turned into stars. Alyssa was also waiting for success. She threw all her strength into acting, pushing the modeling career into the background.

Thanks to the “Vikings,” Alyssa Sutherland was offered the lead role in the multi-part sci-fi drama from the Spike channel - “The Darkness”. The basis of this film was the story of Stephen King - "Fog". Alissa was seen by the creators as the main star in the cast of this project. Unfortunately, neither the credibility of the story, nor the advertising announcements, nor the good play of the actors could attract the audience. At the end of June 2017, the series started and 10 initial episodes were shown, after which at the end of September the creators of the project closed. So far, Alyssa Sutherland has no plans for new roles, but many critics are sure that the actress will soon please her fans with new interesting images.

Personal life

Often Alyssa reporters ask questions whether she is a relative of the charismatic actor Donald Sutherland. In fact, celebrities just have the same surname.

In 2012, Alyssa Sutherland and director Lawrence Chanet officially formalized their long-term relationship. The wedding was celebrated in Thailand. A year later, the couple broke up and today the Australian beauty is free. Alissa has no children. In the interview, the actress and model does not hide that she is not yet ready to become a mother. But Alyssa Sutherland enthusiastically helps with the education of a niece.
