“True Blood” actress Natasha Alam graces the cover of the July 2010 issue of Playboy magazine.
The 5′ 10″ Russian-born actress is no stranger to modeling. Moving to Moscow to model for Red Stars model management, Natasha was later scouted by International Model Management, sending her to Rome, Paris, Milan and London to model for Gucci, Versace, John Galiano, Rocco Barrocco, Christian Dior and other top designers.
In 1998 she married Amir Ebrahim Pahlavi Alam, the grandson of the former Shah of Iran. The couple moved to London where Natasha studied acting, landing her first acting job on the TV show “Fastlane” in 2002.
Natasha and Amir divorced in 2005, and Natasha set her sights on Hollywood. Currently living in Los Angeles, she recently gave birth to her first child.
Of her Playboy shoot, Alam says, “When we shot it, I just had a baby. I actually am about 10 pounds overweight in that scene, but I love my [body] …. I was still … feeding so it looked great.”
“I had never done [this] before, so I was really, really worried… Alexander helped me so much – he just walked in the room, dropped his robe and he was all out there, no sock, nothing and I was like, ‘Oh, OK… I can do it too.’”
“I wanted to be in Playboy since… As an actress, it was my dream. My publicist called and (asked) if (I wanted) do it and she was like, ‘I don’t know if we should do it,’ and I was like, ‘Yes!’ I love it.”
