She has been a model in the swimsuit portion of the magazine for the past seven years but never on the cover and one can assume that the magazine will soon be introducing new faces in the upcoming year. With this reality on the horizon one must ask what are the future professional career plans for Julie Henderson?
Julie is an example of a woman who is in an interesting career dilemma. Modeling, in particular modeling in the SI Swimsuit magazine has brought her into the public eye. However, while women can model well into their forties as has been demonstrated by several supermodels the more business savvy models such as Charlize Theron, Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks have prepared for their transition from the modeling world by making moves into the world of acting or as television hosts. Charlize Theron and Tyra started the transition into acting while at the peak of their modeling careers. Heidi made the move into becoming one of the hosts and judges of America’s Got Talent, Project Runway and Germany’s Next Top Model. The question that many entertainment observers have for Julie Henderson is what her next move?
Julie Henderson is 27 years old and while this is a very young age for someone to be at a career crossroads she is actually at that point in her career. She is at the point in her career where if she plans to enter the world of acting she needs to consider taking on a role that is completely different from her image similar to what Halle Berry did when she took on the role of a crack addict in the Spike Lee movie Jungle Fever to prove her acting ability or at the very least, she needs to start acting in some small guest roles.
Julie Henderson has been one of the top US swimsuit models over the past seven years. The question in 2014 for Julie Henderson will be whether she will slowly disappear from the public eye or will she be successful in using her modeling success to catapult her into the next segment of her professional life?
Every career, especially those in the modeling world where agents and photographers are constantly on the lookout for the next great face and body, has an end date. It is the models who think and plan ahead are the individuals who can make the smooth transition into the next segment of their professional lives. Entertainment industry insiders are hoping that Julie Henderson has started to think of the next step in her career evolution.
