Norris managed to get her booked at the Canadian Modelling Talent Convention in Toronto, where the top agencies look for new talent.”Even though she is only five feet seven inches, she was able to override that with her personality,” Norris said.First the Ford agency, then a couple of Japanese agents started bidding for her services and now Van Raay is working constantly, mostly on the beauty side of the modelling business, such as cosmetics.”Once somebody bites, that starts the train out of the station,” Norris said.And that where the early training pays off, from diet to fitness to movement and work ethic. Norris also guides models through their careers, maintaining regular contact, usually on Skype, often providing personal advice to ensure they stay focused on the work and less on the lifestyle, which includes exposure to wealth, parties, dinners and dates.A bad attitude or missed assignment can bring a quick end to a promising career, said Norris, whose full time models earn anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000 their first year, perhaps double that the next year and millions over a career.”It a great beginning to life,” Norris said.

They truly let us into their lives. That’s part of the reason for going back all these years. By now, we’re family to them. As well as the two minute quickfire sketches, each episode is centred around several visits to the four girls apparently hanging out at home in their flat, Young Ones or Goodies style. Like French and Saunders’ “white room” sketches, these episodes have a hyper real atmosphere where anything can happen. “We’ve got ongoing narratives for the characters,” says Lowe.
