It’s real easy to get type-cast, and once you do, it’s almost impossible to break out of that mold. That’s why I have so much respect for a guy like Dwayne Johnson. He was a wrestler, and managed to slowly break into the movie world. It started as small cameos, then slowly the roles grew in size, but he always played a similar role. Eventually, with enough time and practice, he blossomed into a full-fledged movie star. It was a truly impressive transition.
I see that happening with Devin Brugman and Natasha Oakley as well. Rather than be pidgeon-holed as just “bikini models”, these two are taking steps to become more rounded and expand their portfolios. They’ve both been doing a lot more than sporting their traditional bikinis, even launching a new active wear line. To show off their fit bods, they recently did a sporty photo shoot with Self Magazine that was fantastic.
However, just like Dwayne comes back to wrestling as The Rock every so often, I certainly hope they never completely abandon their bikini-wearing roots. It’s good to evolve, but also important never to forget where you came from.
