Tall (5'8"), busty and gorgeous blonde bombshell Alexa Rae was born Mary Sharpton on December 10, 1980, in Atlanta, Georgia. She was an avid horse rider for 14 years while growing up, and even participated in national competitions. Alexa also did some work as a face model early in her career including ads for Guess Jeans.

The blue-eyed stunner started out in the adult entertainment industry at age 18 as a dancer under the name Fantasy at the Gold Club. She began performing in hardcore X-rated fare in 1998 and worked for a while as a contract girl for Wicked Pictures (her porn pseudonym was inspired by singer/songwriter Billy Joel's daughter Alexa Ray Joel). She started her own erotic novelty toy line called Essensual Elements. Alexa won an AVN Award for Best Couples Sex Scene - Video in 2003. She's featured in the music videos for "Uncomplicated" by the all-female punk band Lo-Ball and "Work It" by Nelly with Justin Timberlake.

Rae has kept a low profile since apparently retiring from the adult industry in 2006.
