Is it time for Jessica van der Steen to leave Europe and attempt to conquer the United States? This Belgium born model has done almost everything that can be accomplished in modeling in Europe. She is a Victoria Secret model, and she has been on countless magazine covers throughout Europe since the age of 16. In 2004 and 2005 she was part of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Magazine so the American audience has been introduced to her. Jessica van der Steen is now almost thirty and this Heidi Klum look alike is at a point of her career where either she makes the leap into acting or she does not.
For years she has mentioned an interest in acting and with her striking model features and sunny disposition it is not a question of whether the American public would fall in love with her. The question is whether she could handle the scrutiny of the American entertainment industry?
It is no secret that the lives of public figures in Europe is much more protected than in the United States where once an individual becomes a public individual who is part of the entertainment industry their private life is no longer private. For Jessica van der Steen, a woman who values her privacy to such an extent that almost no one knows who she is dating despite her being a highly photographed model, this might be what is holding her back from trying to become an actress in the United States.
For Jessica van der Steen 2014 is going to be a hugely important year as she must decide whether she wants to make the move into television as a host, actress or remain a model. She is in a unique position in that she cannot make a ‘bad’ move because her career as a model is established. However, there are some opportunities that if not grasped when presented will not come again and Jessica van der Steen must realize that Hollywood will not wait for her to make a decision when there are other models of similar credentials who are wanting to make the transition to successful actress.
The year 2014 is the year of decisions for Ms. Jessica van der Steen.
