Online PR News – 29-April-2009 – – Bristol, UK ( Onlineprnews ) April 29, 2009 - If youâve always suspected that models are nothing more than pretty faces, itâs time to admit youâre wrong. Many models go on to become actors, either during or after their (http://www.modelsdirect.com/ourmodelssay-select.html) modelling career, to show off the full range of their talent and reach an even larger audience than they can by simply becoming a model.
Supermodel Elle Macpherson is one who has been very successful at transitioning from her glittering modelling career to career in acting.
Macpherson will now appear with Mischa Barton and Ashton Kutcher in a new TV show called 'Beautiful Life' produced by the CW television network. The show will track the lives of a group of male and female models who share a home in New York as they pursue their modelling careers.
Macphersonâs character is Claudia, owner of a top New York modelling agency and a runway star of the 1980s.
The show promises to be essential viewing for anyone interested in (http://www.modelsdirect.com/locations/worldwide.html) becoming a model or wanting to know more about how the modelling industry works.
Macpherson is no stranger to the world of acting. She made her film debut appearing an artist's model in the 1994 movie âSirensâ alongside Hugh Grant. Since then she has appeared in a number of movies and TV shows, including five episodes of âFriendsâ where she played Joey's roommate and girlfriend Janine Lecroix.
According to Managing Director of UK modelling agency Models Direct Damian OâConnor, Macphersonâs wide range of talents is not uncommon among models.
âModels are called upon to play all kinds of roles when they are on a photo shoot,â says OâConnor. âSo itâs a very valuable skill for anyone wanting to become a model, to have some degree of acting talent. Itâs no surprise that some models go on to become fully fledged actors in their own right.â
