Australian model Abbey Lee Kershaw is determined to make it as an actress - and no longer wants to model at all. So committed to her new career goal, Abbey has moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream. She's already landed a part in 'Mad Max: Fury Road' which is due to be released shortly, and now she has commented on realizing her love for acting. The model also reveals that she now just goes by Abbey Lee, dropping her Kershaw last name:
“It is sexier. It’s short and sweet. It’s nothing against my dad, I love the guy.”
Abbey wants to be able to work just as an actress:
“You see tonnes of actresses doing campaigns and big-money modelling jobs and covers for magazines, so I am just going to make decisions based on work that supports the acting rather than catalogue work. I’m aiming to do what I need to do for acting and nothing more. I’m bowing down to it."
On moving to Los Angeles to act:
"This is kind of where you need to be with what I’m wanting to do right now."
On realizing she loves acting:
“It was a flame I didn’t even know, or was waiting to be lit. I didn’t realise that it was an option for me. I also didn’t realise that it was exactly what I was supposed to be doing. I just can’t believe that I’m here doing this. It gives me so much.”
