Model-turned-actor Lisa Haydon, wants to play a strong-headed girl on screen because she can relate to such a character.
“I would like to play a girl that has brave souls and character and something that is raw. I would like to work in real cinema because I kind of relate to that kind of role better. The roles that I’m looking for are de-glam ones,” she says.
Last seen in David Dhawan’s Rascals, Haydon, 26, debuted with the 2010 release Aisha, in which she had a small role of an NRI businesswoman. “I’m not opposed to smaller roles either. I think you can showcase talent and character in smaller roles as well. I’m open to everything that is meaningful,” she says.
Now the actor will be seen on the small screen hosting Hunt For Kingfisher Calender Girl 2013.
And being a Kingfisher Calendar Girl herself, she said it is a great platform if you want to be a model or a supermodel or get into Bollywood. “The kind of media exposure a Kingfisher Calendar Girl gets, it’s definitely the best platform. It’s like a big break as every big producer, director or industrialist sees the calendar,” says Haydon.
Ask what qualities are they looking for in the winner, and Lisa says: “They have to be confident, beautiful and a good storyteller as well — someone who is an all round package.”
