Lisa Haydon is the current host of India's Next Top Model and will soon be on the big screen opposite actors Ashkay Kumar and Abhishek Buchanan in the movie "Houseful 3", the latter a prominent project that she would probably never have been considered for if it had not been for her impressive performance in the movie "Queen" (The Indian Express - August 27).
One of the major challenges for a model turned actress is to prove to viewers and critics that they can act. Critics and even some entertainment viewers often question whether a beautiful, successful model has the talent, perseverance and acting range to become an actress and thus finding a role that provides a model/actress the opportunity to display their talent is challenging.
It is for this reason that Lisa Haydon is in part so grateful for her role in the movie "Queen" because it was her acting in this movie that resulted in people taking notice of the fact that she was morhe than a model and could actually act. Her performance in this movie has literally transformed her entertainment career as she is now viewed as one of the most attractive actresses in Bollywood who can bring fans to the theatres with her model looks and keep them in their seats with her impressive acting range.
Her acting profile has risen to such an extent that despite her not being the first choice of the film produces of the movie "Houseful 3" she was offered the role because of how she is now viewed as an actress, something that would not likely have occurred before her breakthrough performance in "Queen" where she played the part of the bohemian single mother Vijay Laxmi (The Indian Express - August 27).
