Interview with Eric Liyah Kane
Hi Eric! As always, I am very happy to talk with you. I know from private sources that although you live in the UK, you are not from there. You are of Polish nationality. Do you feel more Polish or British now?
Hi Kamila!! lovely to speak to you and thank you so much for having me! I have been in UK for a while now so I guess I could say it’s my home but Poland is very special to me plus part of my family still lives there so I try and visit as much as I can 🙂
How long have you been doing modeling and what can you call your greatest achievement in this field?
I have been modeling for 5plus years i think now. Every achievement is worth talking about. There is no small or big, it’s a massive privilege for companies and brands to choose me to model or walk the catwalk for them. No small or big then all super happy and grateful vibes here 🙂
Do your Polish roots help you in your career or maybe they interrupt in some way?
I feel proud to be Polish, the only thing I had to adjust to is changing my name to be more internationally friendly, Polish names are not the easiest to spell or even say sometimes.
What did being a model bring to your life?
I feel privileged to have met the most amazing creative and beautiful people in this industry. I made a friendship I could only dream of. I have visited places that are forever staying in my heart 🙂
Do you have any other passions or are you doing something professionally unrelated to modeling? And what do you like to do in your free time?
I’m a massive geek ! most of my followers know this – books, science, crime, graphic novels and animals are things i get to indulge in when i’m not working 🙂 and obviously family.
What would be your greatest professional achievement you’ve ever dreamed of?
I feel like I have done fair share or amazing things, but I would really like to maybe work on traveling exploring campagne that I can climb some mountains for living, either that or animal rights campaigns! All for spreading love <3
What advice would you like to give to models who are just starting their adventure with posing in front of the camera?
Be yourself , love yourself and your look we are all so unique – embrace it! Be safe – always check where you going and who you are shooting/working with 🙂
Go and follow Eric
