entertaim.net: I read that you grew up close to Amish County in Pennsylvania. Did this influenced you in a certain way?
Krys: Yes. I am very domestic. I was taught happiness in simplicity. I think I have an image of being a jet setter and a girl always at the party but at the end of the day I want to be in the kitchen cooking, reading a book, and relaxing.
entertaim.net: Could you image living like they do?
Krys: I need my electricity and hot showers. So probably not.
entertaim.net: Your friend Nikita Esco encouraged you to become a model. Are you still in contact and did you regret your decision to model?
Krys: Nikita is very much an integrated part of my life. She and I grew up together, after I moved to the west coast. Modeling helped me break out of my shyness and gave me amazing contacts and opportunities. It was a blessing.
entertaim.net: You performed Go Go Dancing in China … wow, this sounds weird cause there so many different stories about China. What are your experiences regarding China? Go Go Dancing doesn’t seem to be a symptom of Communism?
Krys: It was such a random gig. I jumped at the chance to travel. The funniest thing was when I was on the Great Wall of China and the Chinese tourist kept taking pictures of me because I was a white, blonde girl. I marveled at how I was going to be in their vacation pictures. „There is the Great Wall …. and that is some blonde American girl…“ (laughing)
entertaim.net: You’re 100% German … but you grew up in the US … do you speak German, what’s your typical German attitude and besides … what’s your fave German word?
Krys: I embrace my German roots. I can only do small phrases to get by. My favorite German word is „Bleistift“.
Krys: It means pencil but I like saying it. I’m silly. I also like the polite words: „Gefallen and danke“. I like manners.
entertaim.net: Do you like drinking beer or is beer poison for models (laughing) ?
Krys: A cold beer on a summer day isn’t bad. True Germans drink and are merry!
entertaim.net: That’s definitely true! Can you tell us more details about your shootings and projects in the near future?
Krys: I have been focusing a lot on behind the scenes stuff. I am doing a few shoots but am learning make up, photography and am styling shoots. It’s interesting seeing the other side of shoots and post production. I am currently doing a holiday look book for a new line called UnKwn Clothing. It is a street wear brand that is meant for the more polished and forward man who wants a twist on current trends.
entertaim.net: Finally, do you have a Top 3-list of NO GO’s for models?
Krys: Like, what shouldn’t a model do?
entertaim.net: Yes …
Krys: Models should never be late. Never be unappreciative. Never have a bad attitude. Just be a good human being and be confident.
entertaim.net: Krys, thank you very much … maybe see you in Germany soon …. for a beer and a Bleistift ….
Krys: (laughing) … You’re welcome. See you …
