Lexie Stevenson is a Maine native. She grew up mostly doing singing but got her big break into acting when she was cast as Mattie Ashby on The Young and the Restless. Soap Opera News got the chance to talk with her about her acting career, music, real-life romance and so much more.

Stevenston told us a bit about her background. "Yes! I was born and raised in Maine and my parents still call it home. I grew up in Bath Maine for the most part but graduated from Brunswick high school. I miss Maine a lot. Especially the summers because we live on the coast so during warmer months my family and I get to enjoy being on the water."

While she first started out singing, she later had an interest in acting. "Initially, I was mostly into singing but growing up in Maine there weren't really that many opportunities to showcase that besides musical theater so I decided to try that out. I ended up loving it and tried to be a part of any play I could get my hands on. Once it was time to go to college I deferred from SUNY-Purchase (the school I would have gone to if I went to college) and moved to Los Angeles to see how I liked it. After almost a year of being in LA, I booked Y&R and that gave me a lot of validation to keep going with my acting career."

Stevenson then went on to tell us about her Y&R journey. "Y&R was one of the first auditions I had been on and I get really nervous when I audition.," she shared continuing, "One time it got to the point where my mouth dried up so much I wasn't able to say my lines. However, when I went in to audition for Mattie the first time, there were a lot of people on the sign-in sheet auditioning for her. So, I thought there was no way I’d book it so I kinda just let go of the idea that I had to be perfect and it made me feel so much more relaxed. Then when I went in and tested for the role in front of the execs, it was the same thing. I thought there was no way I’d get the role so I just decided to have fun with it and it worked out!" As for how it felt to be on the #1 CBS daytime drama she noted, "Family. That’s what it is like to be apart of the Y&R cast. Any day I am not with them, I think about them. I could not have asked for a better show/team to be with for the first thing I booked."

Stevenson also explained Mattie's absence onscreen. "I have gone off contract and I think that’s just because of changes within the show which is good because change is good but I definitely miss it." But, don't worry fans she also shared, "I still play the role of Mattie so I do hope that I will be making a few more appearances."

There have been a few more changes in her life. She recently signed with a new agency and she told us why, "Like I said before, change is good and I just felt like it was necessary in order to keep growing. Stewart Talent is an amazing talent agency and they have been giving me so many amazing opportunities to show what I can do. Signing with this new agency felt like a fresh start and it helped me rework my goals to not only be a successful actress but to also be the very best at what I do. So now that I am with them I have been working twice as hard to achieve that goal."

Stevenson made an appearance in a music video for I Know by Quincy Fouse and the experience was great. "It was amazing and so fun. Not only is Quincy an amazing friend to everyone around him, but he is also one of the most intellectual and grounded people I have ever met. Hanging out with him on set all day was a real treat. Being in music videos is not something I am actively trying to do but when it comes to my friends I’m always up for it."

While she is not at Y&R or acting, Stevenson keeps herself very busy. She highlighted, "Since not being at Y&R I have been super busy switching not only my agency but also my management company. I have also been auditioning anywhere from 3-4 times a week, taking dance, krav maga, acting classes as well as a once a week private coaching. I do sing and that is another thing that has been keeping me busy. I’ve been in the recording studio a few times and trying to write more. Hopefully, I’ll be ready to release something soon." As for any upcoming projects, there were none that she could disclose, at least "Not yet!"

We also spoke about her birthday milestone. She turned 21 in September and told us, "It feels great! Before turning 21 everyone (including myself) is trying so hard to get there and be an official adult but once I turned 21 I reflected on all the years I can remember. 21 feels like a huge blessing for me. I’ve accomplished a lot within 21 years and it gets me excited to see what's in store for future years to come."

And, we switched gears to her real-life romance. Stevenson recently shared a picture on Instagram of her beau. "Yes! His name is Kris Wilkes. He played basketball at UCLA for 2 years and that is where we met at the beginning of this year. We have become each other's biggest fans and I am really happy with him."

Last, but not least - Stevenson left a message for her lovely fans. "I want to thank all of you for sticking with me and constantly giving me your love and support. I feel it all the time when I see your messages. I love waking up in the morning and reading them. It gets me motivated for the day because I never want to let you guys down. I love you!"
