Thalia Heffernan

Dublin girl Thalia Heffernan has us truly spellbound. The teen model, animal lover and all-round cool chick is Ireland’s hottest modelling sensation, and she has big plans – and we mean big. For most young girls, autumn is synonymous with early morning commutes to college lectures. But for this lady, early mornings and clothes fittings are almost second nature. Thalia’s raw potential was spotted when she was just 15 years old, when she was quickly signed to Morgan The Agency, who still represent her today. However, it didn’t stop at Dublin – London soon came calling, and Thalia is now also signed to Premier Model Management in the UK, the same agency behind supermodels such as Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista.

Thalia certainly doesn’t waste any time, as she is currently in New York, a city where she plans on making her dreams a reality. Her Instagram snaps give a colourful insight into her life, and you can tell she’s a bright young spark. ?Being in London is great, and it’s really opened my eyes to potential opportunities for me in the future. Although at the moment, my focus is conquering New York. I’m going to different castings around the city, and I plan on staying for six weeks, so I’m home before Christmas.? Thalia has us obsessed with her captivating, seductive presence and beguiling personality, but how does she feel about being in the limelight? ?The most obvious difference about being a ‘modelling sensation? is the publicity and attention. I’m still trying to figure out whether I like it or not! I suppose it brings good and bad. I’m lucky that I haven’t really run into much bad press so far in my career.?

Despite her youth, Thalia has quickly become a pro. I can sense this lady knows what she wants, but does she have insecurities? ?When I started modelling I had no confidence at all. I have issues and insecurities like almost every other teenage girl. But modelling has really helped me grow into my own skin.? And she is enviably comfortable in that skin.
