British supermodel Lily Cole is determined to put her catwalk career behind her for good - because she wants to concentrate full-time on acting.
The beauty recently put her fashion career on hold to study at England's prestigious Cambridge University and has taken roles in a string of films including The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus with the late Heath Ledger.
Cole is now adamant her days as a full-time model are at an end, because her future lies in Hollywood.
She says, "I'd like to act and not really model so much. I wouldn't want to treat acting as a convenient thing to do now and again. I've been modelling for years and I feel like I've taken out of it what I need to and I'm ready for new things. I've really enjoyed the process of acting and I'd be more inclined to dedicate my time to that."
