This week, the lovely Hope Springer is our “One to Watch.” Redheads are certainly having a moment – big-screen beauties Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams and Julianne Moore recently appeared in a Vogue feature on the “inscrutable allure” of fiery locks. “Being a redhead is awesome,” Hope says.
Hope made her acting debut at age six as Kaa, the lead in a community theater production of “The Jungle Book.” At age seven, she starred as Belinda Cratchit in “A Christmas Carol,” directed by Broadway director Michael Unger at the Tony Award-winning McCarter Theatre in New Jersey.
More acting roles followed, and several months later, she decided on a whim to pursue modeling and signed with Generation Model Management. Hope’s first modeling job was for Joe Fresh in the fall of 2013, which led to shoots for Gap, Target and several publications, including La Petite.
“Caring, friendly, and bubbly,” is how Hope describes herself, and she adds, “I am a computer genius!” She loves playing Minecraft, competing with her school’s science team, and designing maps with her cartographer father. She also calls herself an animal activist. Hope started her own company, My Hope for Animals . “I make dog bandanas and cat nip pillows to sell in order to raise money for animal shelters,” she says.
Hope is our favorite kind of triple threat: beauty, brains and heart.
