Model Beginnings: For years now, the British-born Deyn (nee Laura Hollins) has straddled the line between supermodel and style icon. Deyn landed her first US Vogue cover in 2007 alongside the likes of Chanel Iman, Coco Rocha, and Jessica Stam. Her trademark pixie cut and lanky frame have landed her campaigns for Burberry, Armani, Mulberry, and tons more.
Big Acting Break: Aggy’s film debut came in 2010, when she played Greek goddess Aphrodite in the blockbuster The Clash of the Titans. Along with some voiceover work (for her Doc Martens campaign and Rihanna’s “We Found Love” video), she plays a stripper in the upcoming remake of 1996′s Pusher, and is set to star in the film adaptation of the Scottish novel Sunset Song. She also recently made her stage debut in London in The Leisure Society.
Final Verdict: Though she’s appeared in a some select editorials over the past several years, it’s clear that Aggy Deyn has decided to switch her focus to something with a little more dialogue. Her choice to take a step back from the blockbusters following her turn in Titans was probably a wise decision–it’s generally better to work your way up when you’re switching career paths. Vogue UK called her theatre debut “convincing and genuine,” which leaves us with high hopes for her other roles to follow
