Laura Lydall interviewed by Maxim December 2016
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I worked as a lending manager in a major bank for years then decided to pursue modeling and acting. After starring in a few controversial TV commercials, then a TV series and many international magazine covers, I was lucky to be the lead actress filming a TV commercial with Jean Claude Van Damme which is out January. You can watch these on YouTube or my Facebook fan page. This year I was the winner of the Jetset Magazine model contest. I’ve been flying all over the world. In October, I was crowned the winner of the Ms Australasia pageant. I studied finance, but recently I studied personal training and nutrition which I found more interesting.
Where is the most exotic location you’ve been?
Travel is a perk of modeling, and luckily Jetset Magazine awarded me with private jet travel for the next 4 years after winning their modeling competition. The most exotic location so far is the Maldives.
What made you decide that modeling was the career for you?
I decided modeling is something I enjoy and thought I’d take the opportunities that came my way. I always looked at it as a hobby rather than a career any earnings from it are just a bonus.
You are a very busy woman. How can a man make sure that he gets your attention?
Fool proof ways to get my attention come in two categories, namely: bad attention and good attention.

In terms of bad attention, being overly persistent or obsessive, being sleazy or arrogant, poor manners and men who overly critical of other people.
