When people within the modelling industry hear the name Juliana Martins the first thought that comes to mind is the Brazilian "Cindy Crawford" but unfortunately that never became her reality. Juliana Martins became a successful model who has modelled throughout the world, was a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model and is still walking the runways of Europe and modelling for some of the top fashion houses in the world.
However, while some models have difficulty preparing for the transition from being a top model to their next career or expanding their brand into different career avenues Juliana Martins is an example to all models on how to transition from modelling to acting.
Since 1997 Juliana Martins has been acting in addition to modelling and is now an established Brazilian television actress who has appeared in several movies as well. She is currently filming the television series "Assunto de Familia" and has become established as a Brazilian acting and fashion star. It is very likely that she is one of the Brazilian media stars whom the Brazilian people will most want to hear from more during the upcoming 2014 World Cup.
Juliana Martins is an example to all models about the importance of a person being willing to reinvent or add to their skill set to ensure that they are always in demand. Juliana Martins did not wait until the end of her modelling career to start building her acting resume but instead she began her acting career when she was at her modelling peak and as a result she has become a leading actress in Brazil who has a very long career ahead of her.
Juliana Martins never became the next "Cindy Crawford" but instead she became something better: Brazilian television star Juliana Martins and that is a lesson that all models should learn.
