Alana Zimmer, the Kitchener, Ontario native, is a mainstay in your bunny's favorite agency (and the feeling is amicable) Supreme Model Management. The warmhearted Miz Zimmer is decidedly partial to her Canadian homelife and catches the one-hour flight to Gotham whenever she is needed.
Highlights from her September 2007 models.com interview with Dan Grant:
DAN GRANT: How would you describe yourself?
ALANA ZIMMER: I’m kind of quiet. I’m not that outgoing, but I do like to do a lot of things. I like to go to the museums in New York… I like to sightsee.
DG: Do you do the same in other markets?
AZ: I do, because I know this business doesn’t last forever and I won’t always be traveling to these cities, so I try to experience as much as I can.
DG: Was it difficult to learn about the personalities and expectations?
AZ: I had really good teachers. Supreme, you ask them a lot of questions, they don’t throw you into it blindly. They’ll tell you who the people are and what they mean in the business. It’s good to know that kind of thing before you get into it.
DG: Supreme is a very exclusive agency. Do you find it frustrating sometimes when they turn down opportunities for you?
AZ: My agency is very good, and I trust them a lot. Not only do I work with them, but they’re my friends, so I trust them very much. When they turn something down for me I know there’s something else bigger coming.
DG: Any special talents?
AZ: I can knit. I used to work in a retirement home, so all the old ladies used to teach me.
