Spending even a quarter of an hour with a model as in demand as Erika Linder can be daunting to nigh impossible. The Urban Outfitters blog UO Blog did not have this problem as its parent company had the Swedish model on set for the day, which in turn provided an opportunity for an interview with Erika. A tomboy since way back, the ever versatile Erika is comfortable before the camera in roles masculine or feminine. “I feel like people are wanting me for me,” says Erika. “It’s funny, I can go do the most girly shoot in Malibu, running around in a bikini, and then the next day I go shoot a suit story. I like to keep a balance between them because it’s so much fun to be able to do both.” No argument there, Erika Linder is best as Erika Linder.
