The actress shared her own experience in the fashion industry.
Irish model and actress Katrina Balfe, best known for her participation in the movie Outlander, in a recent interview for Angela Scanlon’s podcast talked about the difficulties she faced early in her career as a model. Balfe began her first steps in the fashion industry and soon made her way to Paris. She subsequently became a spokeswoman for houses such as Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Balenciaga.
In a conversation with the host of the program, Katrina admitted that she constantly faced pressure when she worked as a model: “You automatically have to be fun, interesting, active so that fashion people want to communicate with you. It is imperative that you be thin and androgenic. ” The actress shared that it is difficult to be in a state of constant competition, as there were always “people who did better”, and the models were constantly compared with each other. “It’s very difficult for a young woman in her 20s,” Balfe admitted.
According to the artist, agencies that are engaged in the career of a model play an important role. Katrina admitted that she was lucky in many ways, as she worked with several “wonderful bookmakers and amazing agencies”, but she also remembered unsuccessful deals with management companies that dictated all the moments of appearance, positioning, income, which could break the “fragile personality “.
