Agyness Deyn Nabs Speaking Role

Model-actress … whatever.


Blonde waif Agyness Deyn—no longer the face of Burberry—seems to be shoring up her post-modeling options now that she’s reportedly all of 25. In recent weeks she started a band called Gene Jacket, and now she’s accepted a lead role in a short film by her friend and bandmate Alanna Masterson, the 19-year-old sister of actor Danny Masterson. Deyn plays the imaginary turned real friend of a teenager grieving the death of his sister. “I have had a few friends that have lost people, and you do remember that stuff,” says Deyn. The film (working title: The Right Side of My Exultant Brain) also stars another Masterson sibling, Jordan, as the teenager, and features a cameo by Dustin Hoffman’s son Jake. Deyn, who studied drama in college before moving on to Vogue covers, says she’s “not necessarily” ready to trade the runway for a soundstage. “It’s the first time I’ve actually had to speak,” she says.
