There have been plenty of models over the years, who have decided to try to mix their lives up a little and step out of their comforts zone, by spreading their wings and making the move into acting, to see if they have what it takes to make a Hollywood career for themselves. While some have learnt that acting really is not for them, there are others who have gone on to have hugely successful acting careers.
While most of the talk about models going into acting seems to centre around the female models, with the likes of Brooklyn Decker, Kate Upton and Cara Delevingne all taking up acting, there have also been a number of male actors who have done both. Most of you would instantly name Jamie Dornan, as he has become a huge name, thanks to being cast as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, but there is another male model who knows just how to mix a modelling career with an acting career.
French star Gaspard Ulliel has been in the modelling game for many years, working with some of the top names in the modelling industry but, while he has been active in the modelling world for many years now, he has also kept himself active in the acting world too. Gaspard Ulliel has appeared in a number of movies over the past few years, with most of you probably recognising him from his role as Hannibal Lecter in the movie Hannibal Rising.
Gaspard Ulliel has shown that it is easily doable to have a successful modelling career at the same time as having a successful acting career and we look forward to seeing plenty more of him both as a model, and an actor.
