Steph Wayne, Interviewed by Jo Blackened

Steph Wayne is a 22 year old, graduate and aspiring model based in London UK.
As a lover of Art & Visual Culture, she is enjoying the London Alternative scene.
Steph’s style is a mix of Glamour and Alternative, with a touch of Horror and Glamour!
After modelling for More magazine, the Observer and the ‘Double Dice’ Jewellery range, she has now turned to acting to be part of the upcoming horror anthology ‘Three’s a Shroud’, where I was able to meet her on set.

Steph, thank you so much for giving us time in your busy schedule!

At what age did you become interested in modelling & how did it start?
I first got interested in modelling when I was about 16, Jordan [Katie Price] really inspired me I thought she was so striking and so different to any other model I’d seen before.

How do you come up with ideas for your shoots?
I get inspired all the time by films. I’d love to do more sexy takes on horror films, like Freddy Krueger or perhaps Clockwork Orange..

Which has been your favourite shoot to date?
Probably one where I was smeared in fake blood – sticky but fun!
What kind of modelling are you interested in and why?
I like glamour modelling but with a more alternative edge as I think it makes it far more interesting and gives you much more space to be creative. Retro pinup looks are great on modern tattooed girls.

Have you ever had to travel far for a modelling job?
Only various locations in the UK, I quite fancy going somewhere hot and exotic though!

How do you find the modelling industry & how do you find the attitude of other models towards you?
Is there much competition or rivalry?
I think it is fiercely competitive, especially nowadays with social networking sites making everybody able to post their own modelling photos etc. However, other models I have worked with have always been really nice.

What personality traits do you think make someone a good model?
I think you have to be very confident and determined but also able to take constructive criticism and knockbacks.

As a model you obvious have to stay in great shape, do you have any special diets or training routine?
Well I’m a vegetarian which means I eat fairly healthily I suppose and I try to get to the gym when I can.

What are your goals for the future and what would you like to accomplish as a Model?
I’d love to be in a few tattoo magazines and my ultimate goals are Playboy and Bizarre.

You have recently got into acting, is this something you’d like to continue with in the future?
I’d definitely be up for doing more acting, especially horror films which are my favourites and also don’t require you to be able to act like Kate Winslet!

What do you like to do in your spare time?
As I mentioned I’m a big horror fan so love watching my horror films. I also like going out to the clubs and pubs around Camden.

Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to start modelling?
Be yourself, be confident and find your niche!
Do you have a website or contact info where you can be booked?
Yes, I am currently a Suicide Girl;
You can contact me for bookings at:

Thank you so much for your time Steph!
Thank you!
