Star Wars & me… & the proof I am an alien! :)

Finally… After months of so many friends & fans asking me so many questions about what how when & who, I can reveal… what my character looked like on the set of latest Star Wars movie 🙂 And well, yep – it looks simply.. like me 🙂 With a big hair! There, in print, lies the proof that I have always been an alien 🙂 thanks to Vanity Fair and the photoshoot by one and only Annie Leibovitz. I still cannot say anything about the plot, other characters I met, or what happened in my scene.  For that, we will have to wait another few more months 🙂  ...

Filming a commercial

….. is a lot of fun! A lot of hard work too, but mostly fun 🙂 Last year I auditioned for a commercial… not a big role but a nice one. Every actor knows commercials are all about looks and luck –  they audition hundreds of people and all is about the right look so you may do your best but not be chosen due to someone in the marketing team of the product thinking they need a more blond or more brunette or more this or that actor / actress. So it is rare people get confirmed for a lot of commercial work… I have always known that, BUT at the same time, & around the time of the casting for that project I decided to be positive and ask universe for what I wanted no matter what.. It is not easy – seeing others equally good and prepared, worrying about your looks including cat scratches on your hand ;), worrying about the right make up etc etc etc. All decided in minutes! Yet, throughout the whole process, I promised myself I would stay positive… even when in a terrible accident I cut my head in the middle of the night and had to be rushed to emergency  – even then, crying like a baby I explained to the doctor on call that they have to put great stitches on my wound because ” I am shooting a commercial in January” despite having no confirmation at the time.  Yesterday it all happened as I imagined – I was dressed in some beautiful clothes and with some lovely people worked on...

Vintage photoshoot Dec 2014

Last week, I was honoured to be invited to model for an incredible vintage 1930s styled photo shoot that took place in an equally fabulous building. And, more incredibly, the team was beyond talented & nice. Results below.

Modelling work again :) This time a la Hollywood :)

As you know from my modelling tab, I also work as a model every now and then… & this week I got booked for a photoshoot of a lifetime 🙂 creating the old style of Hollywood from fabulous 1930s period  – see some images on http://www.pinterest.com/hall8083/fashion-noir/.   I simply cannot wait to shoot! My friends often tell me that I look just like my grandma from a picture she got taken during the Second World War, or that my grandma on that picture looks just like.. Ingrid Bergman :). I wish Maria, my grandmother could be here with me to enjoy my modelling career… but I am sure she is looking over me from heaven & it is thanks to her support I got confirmed for that wonderful assignment. Below a picture from another 1930s inspired session this time with the very talented Phine Ka Photography http://phinekaphoto.500px.com/ , hair and make up by equally incredible Pascale Recher http://www.pascalerecher.com/      ...
