Lisa Haydon says her biggest struggle as an actor was the perception, before Queen was released, she can’t act.

“People did not perceive me as someone who could act and Queen was my opportunity to show them that I am not just a model as I can play a character too,” said Lisa.

“I believe in something called the big break. Aisha was a small role but Queen is like my first film. People started believing in me after that,” she added.

Lisa, who made her acting debut with the 2010 film Aisha, made a career-defining move with the portrayal of Paris-based free-spirited Bohemian single mom in Vikas Bahl starrer Queen.

She later on went on to feature in The Shaukeens and a few others.

Asked how does she looks at the competition in showbiz, Lisa said: “I don’t really feel like that. If there is a project that is meant for me, it will come my way. I know nobody can do what I do. I don’t believe in competition and there is enough work for everyone.”
