Daily Duo: Meet Ellie & Dominic

Ellie

Who:

Ellie Peagam, 178 cm / 5’10”, British, born November.

We Asked:

What have you learned since you started modelling?
“Since starting modelling I have learnt that it’s not about just being ‘pretty and skinny’. But to be confident, hardworking, ambitious and polite. You want to make it pleasurable to work with so hopefully you made a good impression that they remember you and will want to work with you again.”

How and when did you become a model?
“I became a model officially when I signed with my agency at the age of 16. I got scouted by my mother agency, PRM, at the age of 15 when I was shopping in a local shopping centre with my family when John Bruce, one of the directors at PRM approached me and asked if I was interested in modelling and at that time I was still young and never really thought about it. I had been told by all of my family and friends I should do it but never applied. It was so unexpected and it has completely changed my life!”

What’s the most interesting thing about your family? Do you have siblings?
“I wouldn’t say the most interesting thing about my family… but I am so grateful to my family. We are quite a large family and are all really close which I am very thankful for as some people don’t have that relationship which really upsets me as family is the most important thing to me. I am so appreciative of how incredibly supportive they all are, it really helps because they are always there for me and to remind me of who I am. ”
