I can't wait to get back to LA to kickstart my acting career, says beauty Roz


ROZ LIPSETT has finally got her hands on a US visa and will up sticks and move back to Los Angeles in a few weeks.

The 27-year-old model and actress has been home in Dublin for the past four months after spending more than five years working on and off in America with some top fashion houses.

This time last year, she was rubbing shoulders with Hollywood stars like Michelle Williams and Melissa McCarthy at the seventh Oscar Wilde party.

And though she was happy to be back in Ireland, Roz says she longs for the buzz of the showbiz city where she hopes to make a name for herself as an actress.


"Watching the Oscars made me realise how much I love the movie industry and the excitement and glamour of Hollywood," she said.

"I was so delighted for Daniel Day-Lewis winning his third Oscar.

"Last year, I was out at a lot of the Oscar parties and the energy in LA was just brilliant."

Signed with Wilhelmina model agency and Paradigm Talent in LA, Roz has turned her attentions to acting after putting her legal studies on hold.

Back in Ireland since last November, Roz spent the time catching up with family and friends and also signed up with Andrea Roche's model agency.

But this week the Rathgar native received the big news that her visa application has been successful.

"I'm delighted. I'm really happy I have the option to legally work there again and it's an artist's visa so I can model and act and keep up my work in the art world.

"That's the aim. I've been talking with my agency in LA and will take a trip over again at the end of March," she continued.

While she's been at home Roz has been getting in some acting experience and has been working with the makers of Dublin Wives on a new topical comedy show.

Produced by Steve McCormack of Straywave, its writers included Abie Philbin Bowman and Brian Moss.

McCormack compared it with hit US show The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and praised Roz, saying she was a "great comic actress".

The ambitious model is also in talks about a new acting project which she's due to start work on next month, before she heads back to the States.

Yet the single beauty wouldn't rule out commuting between America and Ireland, should the right opportunities arise. "Hopefully they will be able to figure out a shorter way between Ireland and LA as the flight is exhausting!" she added.
