Film And TV Modelling

There are a lot of model turn TV/film celebrities out there such as Alex Chung, Steve Jones, Milla Jovovich, Cameron Diaz, Mark Wahlberg and James Marsden to name but a few.

TV and Film modelling

You don't have to be a fully trained actor to appear on TV or in films, most casting agents are looking for an outgoing personality, looks that set you apart from everyone else and confidence.
Film and TV companies often have a specific look in mind for their filming and very often a model fits the bill! Appearances can start as an audience member, extra or walk on, background artist or featured role in a TV series, film or video. Once you started to get your foot in the door make sure you keep a show reel of what you have appeared in, as this could generate more TV and Film Modelling.
