Citynet Magazine: Tell us about the Dyana Razinn early years. Background, boys,…
Dyana Razinn: I was born in Moldova, the country touches borders with Romania, and I am a mixture of things. (Ukranian-Jypsy-Armenian-Turkish). I grew up in Russia so it was a little different then here. I did not used to get along with boys and actually used to get into fights with them.
How did you get into modeling?
I was always interested in entertainment as a kid and always been a camera ham but I first started modeling when I was 15 and it’s been off and on until I graduated college. Now I’m modeling and acting full time.
How do you feel about being on the cover of the Maxim 2005 calendar?
The first time I found out that I got the cover of the Maxim calendar it was a very nice feeling to be in Maxim is one thing but to be on the cover of a Maxim calendar is totally another.
Have people recognized you based on your ‘celebrity status?’
Yes, some people actually recognized me from some music videos I’ve done.
You’ve been in a lot of music videos with impressive artists. Any favorites?
I love to dance so when the music is good then I love to work on a video shoot, some of my favorites are Dr. Dre, Crystal Sierra, and Destiny’s Child.
Has anyone ever run up to you in the street and brought you flowers? (Or have you had a similar experience?)
My first job was McDonald’s so guys used to pass me phone numbers with money and bring me gifts.
My hobbies are drawing, photography, spending time with my family and friends, going out to dance hmmmm… love that, and play and spoil the hell out of my dog, love him to death.
Best and worst experiences?
One of the best experiences in my job is traveling around the world meeting great people and getting pampered and spoiled. The worst experience on the job would probably be is when you have to work with mean people or people that are just miserable and want to make life hard for everybody.
What’s the greatest risk you have ever taken?
The greatest risk that I have taken so far is to pursue acting and modeling instead of the other career. If you don’t take risks and don’t do what you want to do, then later in life you will regret it and wonder what would have happened.
What do you want the world to know about you?
