It is now safe to count Jessica Cambensy as one of the latest to join the local model-turned-actress club. The celebrity model recently completed filming Beach Spike, in which she plays an arrogant volleyball player with co-star Chrissie Chau Sau-na.

But for now she has left the sweat and action of volleyball and is eager to slow down for some pampering.

'I just finished my movie and now I'm trying to get more sleep. I also need to get some facial treatments and become pretty again,' Cambensy said.

The model attended the Red Valentino opening at Harvey Nichols last Friday alongside celebrities and socialites including Irene Wang Yuen-yuen, Tricia Chen Kin-fei and Yeung Lok-ting.

Cambensy said adjusting from modelling to acting was hard.

'I love doing movies but there's no time to take care of myself. Being a movie actress is not just about looking perfectly pretty like when you are in the modelling world. It's a different lifestyle.'

She pointed at a bruise on her leg which she got from filming.

'I'm a little bit tanned, a little bit hurt, but I'm feeling refreshed to be back. I have a lot to learn to be an actress and I love acting.'

We hope her love for acting lasts longer than her bruise.
