From Mago Hunt to Vogue Italia
Theater major finds new spotlight in modeling
Rebby Foster missed the first day of school this semester. Instead of attending class, she drove to Seattle and spent the day filming as an extra in ODESZA’s intro video for the group’s new album, “A Moment Apart.” Foster found the job through a photographer friend who had taken pictures for ODESZA before. The next day, she returned to UP to attend the second day of her senior year at the University of Portland.
Foster is good at finding these jobs through networking. As a theater and English major, she balances her school life with her side gigs: modeling, acting in the UP theater department and pursuing her own “explorations of humanity,” like hiking and teaching yoga in Asia last summer.
Although she only started modeling about six months ago, she has already modeled in an online photo spread for "Vogue Italia" and has been in ads for companies like Adidas, Reebok and Abercrombie. She also has landed spots as an extra in the shows “Portlandia” and “Everything Sucks."
