"If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it."

-Audrey Quock



Born in the bustling Chinatown of New York, New York, Audrey Quock is of Chinese descent and has two sisters and one brother. Her childhood could be considered relatively normal, until she sprouted as a teenager and became a towering beauty. On a dare as a 5'10" 16-year-old, she entered a modeling contest and, although she did not win, a scout recognized her beauty and introduced her to the New York fashion scene.

Kept her mind "fit" for success

Before she landed any real exposure, Quock studied at F.I.T., the Fashion Institute of Technology, in New York. She concentrated on fashion design and soon knew the ins and outs of the industry. These studies certainly helped ease a young Quock into the crazy fashion world.

Quickly, Quock found a niche in modeling. She was one of the few Asian models who was tall enough to walk the runways and easily fit in with the other models. Small jobs for local designers soon translated into widespread recognition and Quock found herself bombarded with modeling contracts.

Big names dotted resume

She graced many print ads with her presence, including ones for Diesel, Banana Republic and DKNY. Soon, offers from the likes of Elle, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Allure and GQ became regular occurences. Thanks to her frenetic work, Quock could soon boast being in magazine ads and articles at the same time.

Quock's breakthrough

In 1999, Sports Illustrated came calling with an enticing offer to appear in their annual, and extremely successful, swimsuit issue. Without much hesitation, Quock agreed and then proceeded to show off her greatest assets in the skimpiest bikinis. Men loved her so much that the magazine called her back for five years running.

Acting out her career

Unwilling to be pigeonholed as a one-dimensional model, Quock landed roles in film just when she was becoming a household name. In 2000, she was Richard Gere's girlfriend in the romantic Autumn in New York and one year later, she appeared, however briefly, as Don Cheadle's wife in Rush Hour 2, with Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.

With an appearance as a judge for the 2003 Miss Universe Pageant, Quock has shown she has true staying power in an industry that sees models come and go year after year. Her decade worth of experience has given her a leg up on most of the competition and makes the next 10 years of her career look quite promising. That's nothing but good news for us, too.
