Model-turned-ac­tor Lisa Hay­don (above) says she wouldn’t like to be in any other place than the film in­dus­try. “I wake up ev­ery­day feel­ing priv­i­leged to work in a busi­ness where I wouldn’t want to do any other job. I love the travel, the cre­ativ­ity. To be ac­cepted, get to do what you love is an amaz­ing thing,” says Lisa, who made her Bol­ly­wood de­but in 2010 with Sonam Kapoor-star­rer Aisha, and got her break­through role with Kan­gana Ra­naut’s Queen (2013).

The 30-year-old re­cently starred in House­full 3, and feels for­tu­nate to team up with renowned peo­ple in the in­dus­try. “The jour­ney has been fan­tas­tic. I’ve been lucky. The most im­por­tant thing for me is to have fun,” says Lisa, who finds sub­jec­tive the per­cep­tion that mod­els can’t be good ac­tors. “It’s upto each per­son what to do with the op­por­tu­nity, how far you’re go­ing to take it. As far as no­tions be­ing changed, it is in­di­vid­ual. There are many girls who come into the in­dus­try and get crit­i­cised for their act­ing chops, be­ing from modelling back­ground or not. Not ev­ery­one can do ev­ery­thing,” says the ac­tor, who will next seen as a judge on an up­com­ing show. She says the show will give a plat­form to as­pir­ing mod­els, who don’t get the chance to show­case their skills.

“We take girls who prob­a­bly don’t have the op­por­tu­nity ev­ery­day to make it as the top model. They come from dif­fer­ent back­grounds. Last sea­son we had a mother, this year there is a teacher. Modelling is not just about be­ing beau­ti­ful, tall or pos­ing well. It’s about de­ter­mi­na­tion, cre­ativ­ity,” says Lisa.
