When Alexa Servodidio saw the trailer for "The Girl on the Train," she screamed.

Servodidio, a therapist and actress who grew up in Harrison, lives in Port Chester and practices in Mamaroneck, appears in the movie, which was set and filmed in Westchester. She also recently published a book called "Finding Your Peace Within Chaos."

She plays one of the women who glares at Haley Bennett's character following a pilates class in Dobbs Ferry. Her stone cold glare ended up in the trailer.

"It was an amazing experience," Servodidio said. "Everyone was very professional and very nice. It was really exciting that it made it into the trailer."

Servodidio said she didn't interact with Bennett, who was focused on doing her exercises.

"It was a pretty intense exercise," Servodidio said. "She knew what she was doing. My character was jealous that she could do all those exercises."

When the trailer was released, someone tipped off Servodidio that her 15 minutes of fame was beginning.

"I went home and looked at it and said 'Oh My God,' " Servodidio said. "I started screaming. Everyone started calling me. I can't believe this small scene I was in made it into the trailer."

Servodidio, who did not read the bestselling book the movie is based on, saw the movie opening weekend and as an actress and a therapist, she thought it was "incredible."

"The movie hit on a lot of issues that happen in the word of therapy like abuse, addiction and 'gaslighting' that need to be brought to the forefront," Servodidio said. "The whole movie was very intriguing."

When she rides the Metro-North train, Servodidio said she always looks out the windows, like Emily Blunt's character does in the movie.

"I like to peak in and see if something is going on," Servodidio said. "It helps pass the time, if you look back and forth."
