The TV movie Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret tells the story of the 28-year-old aspiring photographer who stood trial for the brutal murder of her ex-boyfriend, 30-year-old Travis Alexander (Jesse Lee Soffer) in 2008. [More Lifetime movies streaming are always available.]
In the movie, which is based on the true story, police find a digital camera with shocking images of Jodi before and after Alexander’s murder. He was stabbed, shot in the face, had his neck slit from ear to ear, and was found in his shower at home.
Arias, who pleaded not guilty and contended she killed Travis in self-defense, was convicted in 2013 and sentenced to life in prison in 2015. In March 2020, 39-year-old Arias appealed her conviction and sentence but the court upheld the ruling.
Jodi Arias is portrayed by actress Tania Raymonde who stars in the recently released shark horror film Deep Blue Sea 3. See trailer above.
She’s also well recognized for her roles on the Amazon series Goliath opposite Billy Bob Thornton (Brittany Gold, see clip above), The Last Ship (Valerie), Switched at Birth (Zarra), Lost (Alex), Cold Case (Frankie Rafferty), The O’Keefes (Lauren O’Keefe), and Malcolm in the Middle (Cynthia), among others.
