The low down on Agyness Deyn's acting debut
Remember how we you told that Agyness Deyn could soon be making her way to the big screen? Well, it looks like we were right... well, sort of. The model has confirmed that she is starring in a short film The Right Side of My Exultant Brain (working title), created by her Gene Jacket bandmate Alanna Masterson, sister of Danny Masterson.
"It's the first time I've actually had to speak!" Deyn told NY Mag. "I kind of feel like fish out of water, and I'm finding a big pond to swim in. I just like opening up different channels and keeping myself interested."
Agy plays the imaginary friend of a young teenager named James, who is grieving over the death of his sister.
"I have had a few friends that have lost people and you do remember that stuff ... emotion memory," Deyn revealed. "It's only natural that if you are playing a part you'll remember experiences from your life, but my part is very light-hearted, quite sarcastic, and fun in contrast to [James's] grieving."
The film is for Masterson's thesis for the New York Film Academy. So is a film career on the cards for Deyn?
"Not necessarily. We'll see how it goes. It's nice working on this particular thing because it's friends, and it's a very chilled environment to learn."
