Agyness Deyn debuts as a stripper

By Tamsin Crimmens

Agyness Deyn, is that you? As a model, she was the epitome of casual London style; as an actress she's gone all demure and elegant.

For the premiere of her first film, Pusher, last night, she wore a tailored Comme Des Garcons dress in prim white, with black patent heels and a softer blonde hairstyle to replace her famous peroxide crop.

Her career change is not the only difference in Agyness' life – she married actor Giovanni Ribisi in June. Asked how married life was suiting her she replied, 'It's amazing!'

Speaking about her new life as an actress, she told ELLE, ‘The experience of acting in a film is very different to modelling on a shoot. It’s much more of a family-orientated experience because you’re on set every day with the same people for a long period of time.’

And which does she prefer? ‘Acting, definitely. At the moment that is…'

Pusher was no easy first role: she plays a strung-out, drug-addicted stripper. But according to co-star Richard Coyle she was a natural. ‘She was amazing to work with,' he said. 'She’s very naturally talented. On set she was very open and playful, which is very important, and she has absolutely no vanity. She just got stuck in.’
