Pejic may be the latest hot model to get the acting bug. Following in the footsteps of Agyness Deyn, Abbey Lee Kershaw (should we call them the A-list?) and several others before them, Pejic is being considered for the lead role in a French film, Frockwriter is reporting.
Pejic’s Paris agent told the blog that French director Florence Dewavrin approached and met with him about the lead role in a feature film adaptation of Honoré de Balzac’s novel Séraphita. We haven’t read the novel, but from what we can gather, the title character has some…superhuman qualities that make Pejic a clear choice for the role.
Published in 1834, Séraphita was about a young androgynous person who goes by both Séraphita and Séraphitus and who is the object of affection for both a man who believes Seraphita to be a woman and a woman who believes Séraphitus to be a man.
An androgynous phenomenon, Pejic is obviously a perfect choice for the role, assuming he has any acting ability. Pejic’s agent also told Frockwriter: “Everyone wants to have him. But the thing usually is, they either don’t have the budget or we’re not interested in the project.” Could Pejic be poised to cause a stir in the film world the same way he has the fashion world? And if so, will androgynous characters be his only option? How expensive do you think he is? To quote P’Trique, Andrej Pejic makes me question a lot of things.
