Along with Freja Beha Erichsen, Abbey Lee Kershaw is one of the A-league models who has become near-on invisible in 2012. That certainly isn’t likely to be the case in 2013, however.
Though yet to be made official by way of any of the traditional Hollywood press publications, Australia’s Daily Telegraph has seemingly been tipped off about Abbey Lee Kershaw’s involvement with the troubled Mad Max 4 film:
Now the elfin beauty is taking her work one giant step further, with word she has signed to star in the controversial fourth instalment of Mad Max.
Her first acting job, the triple-threat (she sings in a band) has nabbed a part in the George Miller-directed production of Mad Max: Fury Road, which was scheduled to start filming in Namibia this month, following years of delays and setbacks.
A well-placed film source said: “Obviously it’s set in a post-apocalyptic world, and women, especially beautiful women, are scarce, so men have been locking them up in cages. Abbey is one of them. She’s perfect.”
Mad Max: Fury Road is set to star Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult, and (if it ever gets made) is likely to be released in 2013.
