From Abercrombie Models to Actors

Lots of actors and actresses start out in the modeling industry before making it big in Hollywood. Here's the dish on a couple of hotties who began their careers as Abercrombie & Fitch models, as well as some fresh faces to watch for!

From Model to Actor - Chris Carmack

Before he was Luke, the popular, water polo player and ex-BF of Marissa Cooper on The O.C., Chris Carmack was just an ordinary guy attending NYU. His drop-dead gorgeous looks were soon discovered by an A&F modeling scout, who felt he was perfect for their 2000 Back to School campaign. His Abercrombie gig led to opportunities with Guess, Target and Cosmo Girl, but he wanted to pursue his passion for acting. So he moved to LA and landed the part of Luke, and most recently starred in the Lindsay Lohan flick, Just My Luck!

From Model to Actor - Tom Welling

When Tom Welling graduated from high school, he had no idea what he wanted to do with his life, but he knew he didn't want to go to college. So he just went with the flow and did whatever he wanted to do. Well, that sure worked out for him cuz while he was partying with pals in Nantucket, an Abercrombie scout liked what he saw in Tom. He moved to the Big Apple and modeled for a couple of years, but never felt at home in the modeling world. In 2000, he went to LA to give acting a try cuz he thought it looked easy! And sure enough, he won the role of the young Clark Kent on WB's Smallville within a few months.

Before his superhero days, Tom Welling was an Abercrombie & Fitch model.

From Model to Actor - Fresh Faces

Abercrombie Kids occasionally features profiles of kids and teens who are living an "a" life AKA an abercrombie lifestyle. The latest A&F profile features 16 year-old Ian Andrewes. Like every other teen, he wakes up in the morning, fixes himself some breakfast - and then goes sailing off the coast of Oahu! Ian, who lives in Hawaii, competes in international sailing races and most recently cruised into first place at the 29er Worlds. He says he's destined to be a sailor, but keep an eye out for him cuz he could also be destined to be the next Abercrombie model-turned-actor!

From Model to Actor - The Real Deal

So if you party with pals or hang out on a boat, you'll be discovered, right? Although it has happened to some lucky peeps, the better way to go about it is to make a portfolio (a collection of your photos) and audition for modeling gigs by attending a go-see (models go to a photographer's studio or casting office and they are seen). Just putting your face out there, whether it's through print, catalogue or runway modeling, will give you great exposure and get you noticed by other modeling scouts. It'll also help you get your foot in the doors of casting directors who are looking for rising stars!

From Model to Actor - Abercrombie's Model Call
How do you feel about becoming a 'crombie boy or girl? You never know where it could take you, and if you're as lucky as Chris and Tom, you could be hearing, "Lights! Camera! Action!" before you know it! Check out the official Abercrombie & Fitch website for details on how to audition as a model. Even if you don't want to parade around in front of the camera, just check out the site for cool clothes like graphic t-shirts, hoodies and jeans.

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

    I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
