21. Talking Body with Brenda C. James

August 9, 2021

Today on the BodPod, we are pleased to welcome Brenda C. James, a management consultant turned model. After an unexpected photoshoot led to the start of a budding modelling career in her 70s, Brenda was signed by an agent and learned to embrace this brand new world. In February of 2020, she was one of 13 models chosen by Knix to appear in their “Age Doesn’t Matter” campaign and she continues to model and act for print and video content around the world. 

In this episode, Brenda will share how she moved from a human resources role to modelling and acting, including landing that unforgettable Knix campaign, five television commercials, and more. She will also open up about the importance of not putting limits on herself and not caring what others think, all while learning the ins and outs of the modelling industry. Last but not least, Brenda will discuss how life-changing it was to model in a campaign that celebrates women of all ages, shapes, and colours, her own body confidence, and the importance of changing society’s views on aging. Keep listening to hear how Brenda is encouraging others – including her children and grandchildren – to feel confident in themselves rather than listening to external influences like social media.
