Paige Elkington

Designer, Model & Actress

Interview

1/2

How can we define Paige in few words?

Well, it seems impossible. Paige doesn't have the time for a single job, a single town, a single style or a single battle. So where should we start? Ok, she is living in L.A - but never more than few days... and she is an actress, an activist but also a designer and of course a model.

She has probably the funniest / most inspiring / coolest instagram account on earth @myfriendpaige

And...well, she is too fast for us. The only think that we can do it to buy one of her amazing bags and listen her playlist.

Good luck

Where are you from?

Knoxville, Tennessee

Where do you live now?

Los Angeles, CA

How can you explain your job to your mother?

I'm one of those annoying millennial career jugglers. Actor/model/designer?

What is your favorite book to quote during a date?

Eh, I'm usually just referencing Louie CK bits and Curb your Enthusiasm episodes.

When / where do you feel the most creative?

It's hard to say but possibly when I'm hungover or on Ambien

Shooting

2/2

What is usually your favorite month?

I live in LA so they're all pretty much the same in my book.

Which song do you ask to the DJ when you are drunk?

Billy Idol - Eyes Without a Face

What is the oldest object that you have?

Oh Jesus, I don't know.

When you pretend to be busy, what do you really do?

Edit my weird comedy videos in my bed

What was your last surprise?

My friends threw me a Paige themed surprise party for my birthday and all dressed up like me.

What's your mood on Sundays?

On Sundays I volunteer as an abortion clinic escort with the pro-choice organization LA for choice so I'm a nice mixture of empowered and angry.

Which object makes you nostalgic?

The Pete and Pete theme song by Polaris really takes me back.

If you have to spend 1 month somewhere alone where do you go?

Adult Space Camp

What was the last thing that make you laugh on the internet?

David Spade hates Coachella (http://bit.ly/2upS7Kz)

What are you most excited about right now?

I just finished filming a tv show called Relationship Status and I'm really excited for that to come out this fall. I also just finished shooting my first short that I wrote and star in with my buddy Max Baumgarten and that's coming out this month and I'm really proud of it. And I'm starting a very esoteric temporary tattoo company that will hopefully be off the ground in the next few months!
