Andrej Pejic, Movie Star?


The buzzed-about model may make the transition to moving pictures.

The phenomenon of Andrej Pejic and his versatile beauty has swept the fashion industry in a way that would have seemed inconceivable a mere year or two ago. Yet, here he is, in 2012, repeatedly making news as one of the most covetable, desirable faces in fashion--for purposes that are in no way limited by gender. Now, Frockwriter is reporting that Pejic may follow in the footsteps of modeling world titans who advanced from catwalks and magazine editorials to screens of the silver variety. Word is that French filmmaker Florence Dewavrin is interested in casting the epicene Australian in an adaptation of controversial author Honore de Balzac's novel Seraphita. The book centers on a twisted love triangle anchored by Seraphitus, a mysterious and androgynous creature who carries on a tryst with a woman--who believe Seraphitus to be a man--as well as with a gentleman, who (you guessed it)--believes the mystical being to be a female. Sounds like a perfect film debut for the malleable muse. Frockwriter notes that no official casting has been announced, but that Pejic's enigmatic persona certainly makes him an enticing candidate for the role. Though, admittedly, sometimes it's best for models to remain otherwordly fantasies that project ethereal perfection silently from the pages of your favorite fashion glossy.
