Sara Albert-Hallmark Article on (Jan 07)

July 23, 2010

In January of 2007, interviewed Cycle 6’s Sara Albert-Hallmark eight months following her appearance and elimination from the show. Here is the text from the article (Written and posted by Amy Argetsinger and Roxanne Roberts):

Worn Out on the Runway
By Amy Argetsinger and Roxanne Roberts

“My life’s in D.C.,” she told us. “Modeling wasn’t enough for me.”

The ’05 Georgetown grad, who was discovered by casting agents at Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, nearly won the Tyra Banks reality show (one gushing judge called the volleyball player a “6-foot-1 Scarlett Johansson!”). It inspired her to quit her research job at Advisory Board Co. last spring and pack her bags for L.A., where she signed with Elite and dyed her naturally blond tresses a dramatic chocolate brown.

She had fun and found work but was worn down by the long hours, wearying travel and endless auditions. “It’s a really difficult industry,” she said. “Every other person you talk to is an aspiring actress or model. It’s a very saturated market. You feel replaceable. I don’t want to feel like in my career that I’m replaceable — I want to feel like I can be loyal to an organization and it will be loyal to me.”

Sound like a job hunter? Albert starts a temp job this week as a legal assistant for a lobbying association, but she’s still floating the résumé. Meanwhile, she’s thrilled to be back with boyfriend John Hallmark (a Hill staffer and fellow Hoya) — and back to being a blonde.

“The whole being-in-L.A., being-a-brunette thing — it’s not who I really am.”
