:: Spotlight :: Model Profile - Arna Karls

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

We are pleased to introduce Icelandic beauty Arna Karls to our readers. Arna was discovered by a casting agency when she was 14 years old. After attending classes with them she got roles in commercials and as an extra in movies. At the age of 16 Arna was signed by the modelling agency Eskimo Models. The agency sent her to modelling school and created a portfolio for her. Soon after she started working as a runway model while continuing to act in commercials and TV shows. At 17 Arna was first published in magazines, and at 18 she was asked to compete in Miss Hawaiian Tropic Iceland. From there her career really started to take off.

In January 2013 Arna went to Los Angeles, USA for a shoot with American Playboy for their Apps and web pages. This led to Playboy around the world showing increased interest, Arna was contacted by Playboy Mexico and was featured as a model on their website. In May 2014 Playboy Mexico shot with her In Cancun and in September 2014 she was published in Playboy Mexico as a Playmate with 12 pages and a centrefold.

Arna is a very enthusiastic, bubbly person with a lovely smile and great attitude. She has become very entrepreneurial in starting two businesses as well as continuing her modelling and acting commitments.
