Career and Life
Alisha Ilhaan Bø aka Alisha Boe, is a Norwegian actress. She is known for playing Jessica Davis in the Netflix drama series 13 Reasons Why.
Bø was born in Oslo, Norway, to a Somali father and a Norwegian mother (from Trondheim). She and her mother moved to Los Angeles when Alisha was seven years old because her mother married an American man. Boe attended two middle schools: George Ellery Hale Middle School and Ivy Academia. She ended up graduating middle school at Hale. She subsequently attended El Camino Real High School, where she was involved in the drama program. She later dropped out of high school to pursue her acting career, whereupon she became the first actress of Somali origin to hold a leading role in an American film since Iman.
Boe made her acting debut in 2008, when she landed a role of a young Lisa Swan in the horror film Amusement. A year later, she appeared in the film He's On My Mind as Laci, and in the 2012 horror film Paranormal Activity 4 as Tara. In 2014, she guest-starred in two series, as Tracy McCoy in Modern Family, and as Brynn Hendry in two episodes of Extant.
In November 2014, she joined the cast of NBC's soap opera Days of Our Lives in the recurring role of Daphne. In 2017, she began portraying the role Jessica Davis in the Netflix original drama series 13 Reasons Why.
