Selita Ebanks is a beautiful and huge enigma to some Hollywood entertainment observers. She has leading lady looks as she is known for being part of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue and an ex-Victoria's Secret Angels model. The British-born model has appeared in guest roles on several television shows on which she has shown herself as someone who can act and rumoured to be part of two 2015 movies scheduled to start filming in 2015: '179th Street' and 'Rude Buay' ... The Untouchable'.
She has the potential to be successful as an actress but there is something 'holding her back' according to some entertainment observers and that is she is almost too recognizable in her current roles as viewers still identify her as a model and not the character in which she is playing.
One of the great challenges for a renowned model who decides to pursue an acting career is proving that she has committed to being an actress. As a result a model will often have to 'shock the senses' of her fans, agents, entertainment observers and filmmakers by playing a role that is unglamorous and downplays her most well-known feature, her sensational physical appearance.
Some entertainment insiders feel that the best career move for Selita Ebanks might be to play a role as a very flawed individual such as a drug addict, a villain or a femme fatale in an indie or low-budget film. Such a role in an independent film will provide her the opportunity to change her image from that of being a beautiful model trying to act and be viewed as an attractive actress who rose to fame as a model similar to how Halle Berry and Charlize Theron smashed the stereotypes held against them through their performances in movies such as 'Jungle Fever' and 'The Cider House Rules'.
She can become an in-demand Hollywood actress but to achieve this goal she needs to prove to filmmakers that she is willing to 'leave her' comfort zone as a model.
As such, one of the intriguing questions of 2015 for some entertainment observers will be whether the gorgeous Selita Ebanks will make the courageous move to make viewers forget she is or was a model and play a role that shows her as only an actress?
