Alexandra Shipp is an American actress and singer who has been active since 2009.

Some of her first works include a voice role in Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, as well as appearances in the series Victorious and Switched at Birth.

Shipp then portrayed KT Rush in the Nickelodeon series House of Anubis. One of her most prominent roles is Aaliyah Dana Haughton from the biographical TV series Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B.

More recently, she portrayed Zoey Abbott in The Good Half and writer Barbie in the Barbie movie, both in 2023.

But these weren't her last roles of the year, as she's set to appear in the romcom Anyone But You.

So, What Is Anyone But You All About?

Anyone But You follows a typical rom-com plotline whereby two people who are seemingly unsuitable for each other pretend to be a couple, only to realize that they do have genuine feelings for each other.

The movie follows Bea and Ben who have an instant connection but do not pursue a relationship due to a misunderstanding.

They meet again because they're both invited to the wedding of Halle, Bea's sister, with Claudia, the sister of Ben's friend.

To avoid unpleasant situations and unwanted flirting from others, Bea and Ben decide to pretend they're dating, only to understand that they actually care for each other.

Since Alexandra Shipp's appearance in the New York world premiere of Anyone But You, fans of the actress and the rom-com genre have wondered about her character, Claudia.

In Anyone But You, Claudia is the sister of Pete, Ben's friend (portrayed by rapper and actor GaTa).

A conversation between Pete and Ben, which the main character Bea overhears, causes her not to pursue a relationship with Ben. However, their paths cross again when Claudia becomes engaged to Halle, Bea's sister.

Without spoiling much, Claudia and Halle are worried that Bea and Ben's bickering could ruin their wedding.

At the same time, the couple plays an important role in the two main characters' romance.

For a long time, romantic comedies were a largely heteronormative genre, so it's refreshing to see that, even if Claudia and Halle aren't the main characters, the plot of Anyone But You is situated at an LGBTQ+ wedding.
