Mad Max: Fury Road's Abbey Lee Kershaw on Transitioning From Modeling to Acting

Abbey Lee Kershaw gets back to her modeling roots in the June 2015 issue of Marie Claire magazine, on newsstands May 19.

Here’s what the 27-year-old Mad Max: Fury Road actress had to share with the mag:

On getting her start: “No one knows who the f–k I am.”

On acting: “This is a true passion, so I’m not going to take it lightly. I want to be challenged, and with that comes being selective about the things I go for.”

On becoming famous: “I’ve started at the bottom of the pile. I have to do it all over again. If it happens, I’m not going to be mad about it.”

    She’s an incredible top model that was on the top of of every designer’s list of models to be chosen for runways and campaigns. I can tell she’s taking acting seriously since she abandoned modeling a while back but she would do rare gigs, she can get a modeling gig at the snap of her fingers if she wanted to but she’s focusing on acting head on. I’d like to see how far she can go with it, I’m intrigued since she has such a great presence, character, and versatility during her modeling career. It would be nice to see her make it in acting plus if she does get famous, she would give the best photoshoots of all time and give all actresses a run for their money.
