Toronto, ON, September 13, 2014 - Max Agency has recently welcomed new Toronto Model and Actor including future Toronto high fashion and runway model Helen Rudnicki. I asked Helen why she decided to pursue modeling and become a part of MAX Agency.
“I thought it would be something fun to do. I was always told I should be a model, I guess that’s what all tall girls are told, so when I was approached I thought it would be something fun to try. It’s a great opportunity. It’s not something everyone can do or is able to do so I thought I should see what it’s all about. It’s a really interesting industry with a lot of aspects to it. I thought it would be interesting and cool to give it a try.”
Helen is currently studying archeology and anthropology in University and I asked her where her education stands in relation to the industry, what she has done so far and what she is doing right now to better herself as an artist, “I’ve been looking into doing some more acting classes but I haven’t found a place to study, I’m doing lots of yoga and I’m thinking of doing some kickboxing classes with my sister to spend some time with her and stay active.”
I had the pleasure of conducting this interview with Helen in person as opposed to over the phone so I asked what brought her into MAX Agency on this particular day, “I came in to get some measurements done and some body shots so all of my information would be up to date.”
Helen had her Polaroid photo shoot done at MAX Agency and her measurements taken and recorded for future reference to be used as a template to keep the models info up to date. I asked Helen what her other photo shoots have been like, “I’ve only done my portfolio shoot and a few shoots with my friends. I did a nude shoot with one of my friends for fun to see how comfortable I was and what my level of fitness would allow me to do and I’ve had two auditions, one to play Audrey Hepburn and the other was a runway parody using real runway models.”
In addition to going to University Helen also works as a bartender and server, “I love to cook. I’m gluten, rice, egg and dairy free. I love cooking and I love to do yoga.” After graduation Helen sees herself getting in to the raw food industry, “I have a lot of food restrictions and allergies and it made me realize how unhealthy people are in general. I also plan to do more modeling and acting.”
The purpose of Helen’s visit to MAX Agency was particularly for consideration for International submissions to experience the industry from another part of the world so I asked Helen where she would like to go,“In the world I’ve always loved to travel. I would love to go to South America. Anywhere in the world except for places that aren’t safe right now. I’ve always wanted to go to Greece. I would love to do runway, editorial, underwear and Victoria secret kinds of things. I enjoyed The Talent Shop Academy. I’ve always loved to perform and it’s something I would seriously love to stay involved in.”
It sounds like things have been pretty good for Helen with MAX Agency so far, “Things have been good. I’ve been submitted for lots of roles, keeping contact is really good. I’m excited to keep going and see where it goes.”
