Sam: I began modeling in high school, even though it took some getting used to. I'd never read fashion magazines, and I was probably one of the worst dressed models around. I didn't like to wear makeup, and the fact that I actually got jobs initially was just a shock to me. But I got better at it and I realized that modeling was giving me the poise and confidence to believe that I actually could make a living acting.
