The model on how TV advertisements says more than photographs.
On the day that Thomas Sabo unveils its first-ever TV campaigns, its ambassador and advertisement star Georgia May Jagger talks filming, photography and being nervous on set.
Q. For the first time, Thomas Sabo is airing a TV campaign. How do you like the commercial?
Georgia May Jagger: I am really excited to see the final outcome. I do get nervous though when I am on TV, but it really was fun.
Q. How many TV campaigns have you done so far?
GMJ: A lot! It’s a couple per year.
Q. Does modelling feel very different when filming a TV spot or shooting photos?
GMJ: Obviously filming TV is more intense and there is more people and staff around. For me TV always speaks more to you than a photo and more people see it so I get a lot more comments on it. It makes me a bit nervous to be honest.
Q. Is acting something you would like to do?
GMJ: Well, I have had experiences in acting before. But to be honest I am hoping for a future in actually photographing and filming the commercials like Ellen [von Unwerth] now, who used to be a model as well. That’s obviously my kind of a goal rather than acting, but I never say never if it was the right part. I just always think I would rather be a zombie in a movie than being a lead actress (laughs).
Q. Are you working on your own photography then? Do you take your camera everywhere?
GMJ: Yes, I have been taking pictures a lot. Especially when I am on holiday and the light is good.
