According to the News of the World Kate's on the hunt for a new career that she can pursue once she steps out of the modelling limelight, and she has always harboured dreams of becoming an actress. She has, of course, appeared in front of the camera before. She memorably pole danced in the music video for the White Stripes cover of 'I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself', she played Maid Marian in 'Blackadder Back and Forth' and she appeared in a series of short films for luxe lingerie brand Agent Provocateur.
In order to break her way into the industry she has apparently enlisted the help of Mike Figgis, who directed her in the Agent Provocateur films and who is helping to find projects for her, and boyfriend Jamie Hince who has introduced her to an agent in New York.
Kate is not the first model to have attempted the transition from modelling to acting. Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto, Milla Jovovich, Diane Kruger and Cameron Diaz all began their careers as models, before sucessfully making their way to Hollywood. But a word of caution - Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Elle Macpherson have all made film appearances with less critical success.
