“To be on a show that has been so well received and has amazing viewing is literally a dream come true”:
Alyssa Sutherland first came to fame as the winner of the Girlfriend Model Search back in 1997. However, it was her passion for acting that lead her to become the second Australian actor in History Channel’s Vikings as Ragnar Lothbrok’s (played by fellow Aussie, Travis Fimmel) second wife, Aslaug:
The fashion industry was always very good to me, but my passion has been with acting now for a long time and to actually have employment is really wonderful.
But while acting will remain her first love, it doesn’t mean she won’t return to the industry that first bought her fame, having signed on for a stint in Australia’s Next Top Model. A show that she was happy to gush about to Sydney Confidential recently:
It is so nice that we are producing girls in Australia on the show that are really going on to do some serious high-fashion stuff …The show has such a good name overseas and people take it seriously because the girls are all of such a high calibre … Just look at Montana Cox, she is doing some fabulous things.
But Alyssa isn’t the first big name to sign on for Australia’s Next Top Model. In the past, guests have included Jean Paul Gaultier, Alessandra Ambrosio and Kelly Osbourne. It will be very interesting to see who else will make an appearance on this show when it returns to Australian screens in 2015.
