We have a quick chat with the gorgeous Kaily Emma Smith; a fresh-faced Aussie beach babe with a killer smile. Kaily talks all things from modelling to her love of acting, and how she gets THAT beach body.
WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING A MODEL?
Definitely working with creative minds, photographers, MUA's, stylists, everyone is so different and individual in their own way and I love getting to know new people, making friendships and talking passions. It's inspiring.
IF YOU WEREN’T MODELLING, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING?
Well, I never intended to come to Sydney and model, I really did just fall into it, which you can probably guess due to my height, I'm quite short, so I guess I would be focusing on acting and just working to support that.
YOU’RE AN ASPIRING ACTRESS, WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO GET INTO ACTING?
I've wanted to act ever since I can remember, I used to watch movies with the commentary on, it would annoy everyone but I used to love hearing about how many different takes each scene would take, how many different ways it was shot, the actors talking about whether that was actually them or their stunt-double. I used to watch the making of the films and all of the behind the scenes, it intrigues me, I love movies, I love acting, I love creating, it takes you into different worlds, scenarios, lives. It's the closest thing to magic in my eyes. It's challenging and it makes you push your boundaries and really open up. I like to push myself and I love a challenge so it's right up my alley.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?
I have a top 5 but I love Goldie Hawn classics, she is one my favourites actors. I'm also a big fan of thriller/horror films.
WHAT’S YOUR MORNING ROUTINE?
I'm not a morning person. I'm a stay in bed along as you can then rush to get ready and go person... early mornings and I are a work in progress.
HOW DO YOU GET BEACH BODY READY?
I like to keep active regularly, but it depends on my schedule, between work, castings and auditions, every week is different. I like to mix it up with walking, gym sessions, dance classes and HIIT workouts.
Dancing, by far, I could dance all day everyday.
FAVOURITE CHEAT MEAL?
I don't really abide by the cheat meal rule.. I eat healthy 90% of the time and if I feel like ice-cream, or chocolate or a burger I'll have one. :)
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE BEAUTY PRODUCT?
Burt's Bees lip balm. It's the best! My lips have never been softer.
IF YOU COULD BE SOMEONE ELSE FOR A DAY, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
Theres a lot of people who I love & admire for different reasons however, I'm pretty happy just being me. I don't think I would give that up. :)
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR SUPERPOWER?
I was always a big fan of Charmed and so I would like to be able to move things with my eyes like Prue. Although being invisible & playing tricks on people for a laugh could be fun!
WHAT’S YOUR PARTY TRICK?
I don't have one! Lame I know... Maybe eating the whole cheese, chip and dip platter on my own... Does that count?
FAVOURITE AUSSIE BEACH?
The beaches at Jervis Bay are beautiful!
