Vancouver Model: Raquel Riskin

DH Vancouver Staff Jan 24, 2011 2:10 pm

Vancity Buzz: Last time we profiled you we focused heavily on your acting talent. This time we want to stick to just  modeling. What does 2011 have in store for you in terms modeling?

Raquel: Good question! There are often ideas in the works but many discussions lead nowhere and many surprises come without warning – so I won’t reveal any maybe’s just yet… We’ll just have to wait and see but I’m definitely excited about this year and what’s to come.

VcB: Last time you said you were gonna be featured in FHM India. How did that go?

Raquel: Yeah, that was pretty cool. I had a 6 page spread in FHM India with a full interview. I could only get my hands on one copy but that’s one I’ll keep forever for sure. A few weeks later I was featured in Summum Magazine with 5 pages so it was a fun couple of months 🙂

VcB: Now we know you’re not single (men all over the city just shed a tear) but let’s pretend for a second you are. What would a guy have to do to get your number?

Raquel: I suppose if someone were to strike up a conversation with me and was polite, friendly, respectful, & interesting then there could be a possibility of getting my digits. I can’t think of any right or wrong thing to say (okay not true there are a million wrong things a guy could say lol). Anyway, it might sound silly but usually the way I know if I’ll want to talk to a guy ever again or not is simply a gut feeling — bad vibes, good vibes or no vibes at all. Truthfully though I can probably count on one hand the amount of times I’ve ever given my number out to a guy I just met. A classy move that I’ve always appreciated is when the guy gives you his card or tells you his number instead of asking for mine. Highly recommended 😉

VcB: Turn-offs?

Raquel: Rude behavior, cocky attitude, show offs and coming in at #1 – Jealousy.

VcB: Current celebrity crush?

Raquel: Thankfully I avoided catching Beiber-fever (good immune system I guess) but with all of the beautiful people in Hollywood I’ve got to stick with what works – Brangelina. Yep, both of them.

VcB: I’ll admit during the Vancity Buzz photo shoot I was kinda nervous, first time doing a shoot and all. How would you describe the VcB photo shoot experience?

Raquel: It was a great shoot! Professional yet totally comfortable. I had fun 🙂 We shared some laughs and got the job done. You can’t ask for better than that.

VcB: Finally, what is your favourite thing about Vancouver?

Raquel: My favorite thing about our amazing city is it’s breathtaking beauty. The stunning views never get old. So awesome.

Special Thanks to WhiteBox Studios for letting us do the shoot there. Many of the photos, including the main photo were shot there.
