Since her last feature on Vancity Buzz Carolina has continued to model and shortly after her feature she went for auditions at Electronic Arts (EA), that eventually led to a pretty sweet gig. She was made into a video game girl for the Need for Speed franchise, now how cool is that!?
“It was one of the coolest experiences ever but also one of the most nerve wracking, I had never really done much acting prior to that and working on the game wasn’t about just standing there and looking pretty. I had head scans, did motion capture, (which is where you wear a black body suit with little white balls all over-head to toe), had to dance wearing the body suit and white balls all over in a room full of guys, and also did voice capture work,” said Carolina.
Not only did that provide great experience for her, it wasn’t easy an easy gig to land considering she was up against a lot of agency-represented girls. “I kinda just walked in blindly but was lucky enough to have met two amazing guys from EA who saw something in me and coached me to just be myself with a little extra instead of coming off fake and insincere.”
After that she continued doing more photo shoots to build her ever growing portfolio and modeled for clothing sites/lines such as 2hotbrazil, Jaide Clothing, Pyrrha Design, Poetria Design, JC Couture, Old School Motorcycle Co...
Her next big gig was a feature in UMM Magazines “Girl’s next Door” Spring/Summer issue. “That was definitely a trip… to walk into a convenience store or Chapters and see my picture in a magazine! Not a cover girl yet but I’m aiming!!”
Being only 5’4″ does place limitations on the amount of runway shows Carolina can do, however she feels blessed for every chance that she does get. “I wish I was a little bit taller, man oh man, I would love to do runway shows for eva eva if i could! heh.”
Recently she was the revenge girl in Faber Drive’s new video, Give him up. “The video was shot at a bowling alley on Commercial Drive and I had a f**king blast filming it! These guys were rocking out right in front of me for so many takes and they never looked like slack.” In the video, Carolina’s boyfriend is cheating on her (um why would he do that…oh wait its a video, never mind) and she sees him going into the bowling alley with another girl. At that point she pretty much sabotages his date and end up leaving with her. Nice.
What’s next for Carolina, more modeling, more acting gigs and some stuff on the side that she doesn’t want to reveal quite yet, except for the fact that it is something else that she is really into that no one really knows about. So keep it locked!
