Hailey Duff

Represented by the PPC in Houston as a child, Hailey was clearly comfortable in front of a crowd. Possessing poise at a young age, we are so pleased at the beautiful and graceful woman Hailey has become! From the small screen in 7th Heaven, her time on Broadway (in Hairspray) and her roles in Napoleon Dynamite and Material Girls, her performances allow her generous spirit to shine through. 

Hilary Duff

Also represented by the PPC in Houston as a child model/actor, Hilary's star potential was evident even then! A true example of parenting done right, Hilary has remained authentic throughout the media storm that has surrounded her celebrity. From Lizzie Maguire to "Cheaper by the Dozen", Hilary has shown her comedic ability. From romantic comedy ("Cinderella Story") to being a multi-platinum recording artist. Hilary has proven she can dominate anything she decides to put her heart into.

Jaime King

From the hugely popular model named "James King" to the movie star known as "Jamie King", this versatile talent has risen to the top by overcoming some pretty heavy personal demons. After taking some time off from modeling, this PPC alum emerged as a truly gifted actor. With popular roles in both "Sin City" films, "White Chicks" and her starring role on the series Hart of Dixie, James has shown she's not just a pretty face!

Jason Lewis

Anyone who has seen Jason in his run as “Smith” on Sex in the City knows that he is so much more than a pretty face. Starting his modeling career at more of a sprint than a walk, Jason quickly became known all over for his provocative Calvin Klein billboards and ads. The response that Jason received for his arrival on Sex in the City ensured that he would remain on the show as well as make an appearance in both Sex in the City feature films. The depth that the PPC alum showed during the run of the role was truly a defining moment in the shows history. He also went on to play “Chad Barry” on ABC’s hit drama Brothers & Sisters.

Josh Holloway

Josh is another example of Page Parkes Corporation’s talent done well! This alum might have started his career through modeling, but is determined to make people look past his handsome exterior and take him seriously as an actor. Given the performances he’s given on the smash hits Lost, Intelligence, and as well as his roles in Paranoia, Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol and Battle of the Year we’d say he doesn’t have anything to worry about!

Kirby Bliss Blanton

This young lady (well, not so young anymore but when you have known her since she was 11, it's hard to allow her to grow up), is truly making a name for herself in Hollywood. After several years modeling and studying in Houston, this PPC talent and her mother decided that a move to Hollywood was in Kirby's best interests. Soon after arriving in LA, Kirby began to land roles in Entourage, Zoey 101 and Hannah Montana. It wasn't long before Kirby made the jump to the big screen grabbing roles in Project X, "Scar" and MTV’s The Inbetweeners. Keep a look out, you will see more of Kirby!

Lorri Bagley

This PPC beauty had a long history as a successful model before Hollywood began to take notice. Modeling world-wide, Lorri was soon cast as the "beautiful woman" in many films. She has had notable roles in "Stepford Wives" and "Ice Age". Her distinctive voice remains popular with animators.

Lucas Babin

This PPC grad made heads turn from day one! With his distinctive look and comedic timing, Lucas was a favorite model the world-over before he turned to acting. With roles on several television series and a hilarious part in "School of Rock", Lucas is far from done! Appearing regularly on Latin TV and more recently as a recurring cast member of The Young and the Restless, we can't wait to see what he does next!

Marcus, Marcus, Marcus…what can we say about this Swedish import? Known as one of the most popular "Supermodels" (and one of the only men to hold the distinctive title), this PPC alum has appeared in more magazines and designer collections than we can count. Some of the more notable being for Valentino, Versace, Donna Karan, Giorgio Armani, and how could we ever forget his Incredible advertisements for Calvin Klein. It wasn't long before Hollywood called to Marcus. With his chiseled facial structure and innate sensuality, Marcus remains in demand for both the small and large screens. Keep a look to the sky to watch this star continue to rise and conquer!

Rebecca Romijn

With her all American looks and full lips, Rebecca was never content to stay in place for long. After becoming one of the elite "Supermodels", Rebecca proved there was more than looks to her in movie after movie. It wasn't until her role as Mystique in the X-Men franchise, that people began to sit up and take notice. From her turn in Pepper Dennis (with PPC grad Brooke Burns) to the groundbreaking role of "Alexis" in Ugly Betty, and her staring position on the series King & Maxwell, Rebecca has proven she can handle both comedy and action with equal aplomb.

Shannon Elizabeth

Shannon Elizabeth Fadal was represented by the PPC in both Dallas and Miami. This money-maker always kept her eye on the next phase of her career. Not content to just trade on her beauty, Shannon made the leap to motion pictures in the immensely popular "American Pie" series, took on a thriller with “Thir13en Ghosts” and even held a recurring role on the popular sitcom “That ‘70’s Show”. Though she didn’t stop there, she has even dabbled in directing and has started her own production company!

This PPC grad combines southern charm with stunning beauty! While modeling in Texas, casting directors began calling on Shantel to audition for roles in shows for The N Network (a division of Noggin) and motion pictures. Since then, she has graced both big and small screens with roles in feature films like The Final Destination and on the ever loved television series One Tree Hill.

Shemar Moore

When Shemar landed a role on the Young and the Restless, hearts across the nation began to sing! Seriously though, it was readily apparent that Shemar had tremendous talent. Once represented by the PPC, Shemar has appeared in television (Y&R, Criminal Minds) and on the big screen ("Diary of a Mad Black Woman", "The Brothers") among many other roles

Skye McCole Bartusiak

Another PPC child alum, Skye is recognizable from several "meaty" roles including Mel Gibson's daughter in "The Patriot", a young Meg Ryan in "Against the Ropes", and double Oscar winning “The Cider House Rules”, along with many roles on television including appearances on CSI, 24 & House. Immensely talented, Skye's performances have earned her praise from some of Hollywood's toughest critics.

Stephanie Seymour

Another PPC alum that ascended to the title of "Supermodel" is Stephanie Seymour. This long-legged beauty was famous long before her romance with Guns & Roses front man, Axl Rose. Before Stephanie retired from show business and modeling to raise her children, she had quite the career working with Victoria’s Secret and with several of Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues. Although Stephanie’s main focus is now being a mother, she still on occasion models and makes appearances. 

Tyson Beckford

Tyson Beckford was one of the first men to be labeled a "Male Supermodel" proving that a man could be as much in demand as some of the women in the modeling world. Known for his shaved head, the PPC alum started the trend among men that "bald is beautiful". Since his meteoric rise in the fashion world, Tyson is now in demand for his acting contributions. Just a few of his acting credits include, Zoolander, Biker Boyz and Into the Blue.

Wes Brown

Most may know Wes as one of the hunky, Soldiers of the Sun in True Blood. But it wasn’t until after attending one of Page Parkes huge Agent Review events did Wes’s acting career take off. He now has made appearances in Scandal and Desperate Housewives, and starred in television shows 90210 and NBC hit drama Deception. Not to mention he has starred in the movie Love Begins and was a main cast member in We Are Marshall

Woody Harrelson

One of Page Parkes-Eveleth's favorite stories is of PPC alum Woody Harrelson. Living in Houston in the 1980's, Woody was a bit down on his luck and living in his car. Page, concerned for his well-being, recommended that Woody settle down, get a full-time job and find a place to live. Woody (always one to forge his own path) decided to drive out to Hollywood to make his mark. Within no time, he inspired the role of "Woody" on Cheers for which he would become famous. While the character "Woody" was somewhat dim-sighted, Woody Harrelson could certainly never be called such! With dynamic performances in the critically acclaimed series True Detective, The Hunger Games, and Seven Psychopaths, Woody continues to work hard and create convincing characters. It’s no wonder Hollywood keeps calling him back for more!
