To have acting experience as a commercial model is a big advantage – often commercial models are required to play a different role, this may require acting infront of the camera for TV commercials, film extra’s or online marketing campaigns. If you have this ability as a commercial model it opens up many more opportunities for you to secure assignments.
It can be difficult to gain acting experience, but it’s a question the Models Direct team ask every model that joins the books. Even if your experience so far is performing with your local amateur dramatics group, it shows you have an understanding of taking direction, learning lines, being a different character and performing to a live audience, all of which takes real talent!
