Money doesn't matter: Lisa Haydon

Lisa Haydon


New Delhi, Oct. 5 -- Although model turned-actor Lisa Haydon's portrayal of a bindaas NRI girl in Queen has opened doors for her on the work front, the 28-year-old says she's not planning to hike her fee, unlike co-star Kangana Ranaut, who has increased her fee by 50%, ever since.

"I don't re-work my fee after every role. I charge what a producer can afford, and that depends on the role and production house. So, the fee changes from film to film," she says and illustrates her point by adding, "For instance, I got the smallest pay cheque for Queen, but it was the best money. It opened so many doors for me on the workfront, so it was the most fulfilling pay cheque."

Talking about work, Haydon, who made her debut in Bollywood with Aisha (2010), says, "The roles have become meatier. I'm now getting roles which require acting. The universe has been really kind this past year."

And the actor has also learned to bring her own style to the table. "The difference is that now I have learned to add unique 'Lisa-ness' to whatever I do. I have learned to execute that in all my projects. The key is to stay true to yourself and add your own interpretation to whatever you do," she says.

Elaborating on the 'Lisa-ness', she explains, "Lisa-ness is my style, my interpretation of the character and my perception of the character. Whatever I do will have a touch of me and different shades of me."
