Alexis also has roles in TBS' Ground Floor, portraying Tori, a party girl, who catches up on her sleep at work the next morning. She did not return for the series' second season.[7] Knapp was also cast in the Lifetime pilot Cinnamon Girl, before it got passed on.[8] Knapp also stars in short film drama Wracked, as Melissa.[9][10]
