Lily Cole was aware of prejudice in acting career

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Model-turned-actress Lily Cole says she always knew there would be "prejudice" when she moved into acting.

The "St. Trinian's" star has always wanted to be an actress but because of her "accidental" success in the fashion industry, she knew there would be people unwilling to take a chance on her, reported Femalefirst.

"It's like a double-edged sword. I think the success I've had in fashion helped me get work in acting. I've wanted to be an actor since I was six, so that was always my first desire.

"Then by accidentally getting involved in modelling in fashion, I think in many ways that opened the doors for me to act and made it easier for me to get into that world. At the same time, I was totally aware that there is a prejudice against models who want to act," Cole says.
