Agyness Deyn has been laying low in recent months. There was a time when you couldn’t flip open a magazine to a random page, without seeing her platinum blonde shock of hair – or jet black bowl-cut, depending on the month. She took a back step from modelling and with a cameo role in 'Clash of the Titans', it seemed that acting was her next step. And what do you know, it is!
Late last year it was announced that Agy planned to tread the boards in London’s west-end in play the Leisure Society, and had been cast the remake of cult film, 'Pusher'. And now the first shots of the model in the role of Flo, ‘a strong-minded stripper’ (no doubt with a heart of gold), have been released. And while we have no idea about her acting skills, yes, she certainly looks like a stripper here! Red wig? Check. Red sequin nipple tassles? But of course. Very complicated one-piece lingerie type thing that looks incredibly difficult to remove easily and sexily in time to music? Yup!
Admittedly, 'Pusher' may be a cult film, but we did have to take to IMDB to find out a bit more about it. The original was set in Denmark and the plot goes a little like this… ‘Frank is a drug pusher on the roll, until he makes a huge deal with dope that he hasn't paid for, and he gets busted by the police. He manages to dump the dope in a nearby lake, but he owes his supplier a lot of money (not a nice guy to owe money too). Now we follow Frank in his quest to raise money in the underworld of Copenhagen.’ Agy’s version was shot in London’s East End, so in her breaks she probably skipped over to the studio of her best friend, Henry Holland, to show off her natty lingerie!
'Pusher' will be released later this year. Will you be buying tickets?
