Lisa Haydon: I am in no hurry to sign films

Haydon doesn’t want to go on a film signing spree

Model-turned-actor Lisa Haydon says she is patiently waiting for appealing projects like her last release Queen and is in no mood to go on a signing spree.

Haydon is keen to bank on the success of Kangana Ranaut-starrer blockbuster Queen in which she played a prominent supporting role. “I am waiting for the right projects to come. I am in no hurry at all. After the blessing of being part of a great film, I want to make sure that whatever I do next capitalises on how amazing Queen has been,” Haydon said in an email interview.

“It should be a step forward. I am now traveling to Basel as I endorse for watch brand. I also have a few other commitments to fulfill. Post that I will choose something from what I am being offered,” she added.

Haydon played an outgoing single mother Vijayalakshmi in the comedy-drama, who makes a living by working as a staff in a hotel.

Her performance as Vijayalakshmi was well received by the audience and Haydon feels the reason behind that was because everyone could identify with her character.

“It feels really good that something we have put so much effort and love into has been appreciated. People are appreciating it for it’s authenticity. Somewhere they feel like they have been able to identify with Vijayalakshmi.”

“Vijaylakshmi is compelling and loveable. Characters like her don’t come along everyday so I am just enjoying this moment for what it is,” she said.

The actor, who has starred in films like Aisha and Rascals, does not want to sign projects in which the depth of her role holds less prominence and the focus instead falls on her beauty.

“I don’t mind being good looking but that should not override all my other attributes. Therefore I want to pick a character that I can add dimensions to regardless of her looks,” Haydon said.
