Crissy Henderson: Follow The Leader
It's not an everyday occurrence that you stumble upon a truly unique person. Even though modern day society seems to promote individualism, those who conform to pop culture are most rewarded. Crissy Henderson is not one of those people. The alluring actress and glamour model hails from the big state of Texas and is the definition of a wild card. Her looks will draw you in but you have to have the brain to match her wit - sarcasm is her second language. We sat down with Crissy to learn a little more about what makes her tick.

Finally, we catch up with you Crissy. So, where are you originally from?
Dallas, Texas but I reside in Los Angeles, California now.
I've been to Texas several times. It's huge! What was it like growing up in Dallas?
I moved around a lot but my school was like something you saw in a teen movie. It was a very wealthy school. All the kids had rich parents and drove BMWs and Range Rovers. It was a 5A school...huge!!! So there were lots of snooty people but I loved the location.
At what age did you begin modeling?
Very young. My mom put me in pageants and I won the photogenic category every year. From that point on I loved being in front of a camera!
Did you always know that you would grow up to be such an alluring glamour model?
NO! I loved modeling but my real passion is acting.
What are your measurements?
What are 5 words that would best describe you?
Loving, loyal, funny, sarcastic, passionate.
I get what I want, how & when I want it.
What would you say is your best asset? What do others compliment you on the most?
My eyes!! Everyone always tells me how beautiful they are.
I've read that you are obsessed with shoes. Do you have a favorite style of clothing?
I'm just a Forever21 type girl :p Jeans and tees with a pair of killer heels. I like whatever looks good on me.
When you're not performing in front of the camera, what are some of your hobbies/interests?
Reading!!!! I read a lot!!! I have a little library in my house full of books on physics, energy work, chakra healing etc. I'm very spiritual.
What type of man are you attracted to?
The kind that were raised right by their mommas!!! :p Im not picky honestly. There's things about people, qualities, etc. that really turn me on and it's always different each time.
What trait do you think is most important in determining someone's attractiveness?
A sense of humor. Do they laugh a lot? That is very important to me. I'm always cracking jokes!

What was the most memorable experience you've had working in television?
The most memorable experience was working with Michael Ironside. It was my first major anything and I'm working with one of the most talented actors of our time. It was nerve racking and amazing at the same time. I put in some long hours of work!
What would you like to accomplish in your modeling career? Do you plan to expand your image outside of modeling?
Yes, I have many projects in the works beside modeling. I'd love to shoot more clothing ads and have a few more magazine covers as well! Thats the goal this year.
We look forward to seeing those goals accomplished. What do you enjoy most about modeling?
