Growing up in Denmark, lovely Heidi Sorenson was the girl with long, blonde hair who enjoyed being creative. “I write poetry. I've been doing that since I was five,” says the all-natural model. Heidi’s creativity, even as a child, wasn’t limited to the written word—she also loved to paint. This talent was passed down to her from her great-grandfather whose oil paintings were predominately displayed in galleries across Denmark. “Painting is very important to me,” states tall Heidi whose smile hasn’t left her face since she began talking about painting. Art will always be an outlet for our Playmate of the Month, however when she moved back to her country of birth—Canada—she was ready to see how she could excel within a different art form—modeling. Working as a junior bookkeeper at a Vancouver radio station, Miss Sorenson met photographer Ken Honey and discussed with him her desire to model. “Ken started using me as a model for local magazines. It took me a while to pose for Playboy though,” admits Heidi. “But, I thought if I didn't do it, I'd kick myself later.” The beautiful blonde packed her bags and booked a one-way ticket to Los Angeles where her career skyrocketed from the get go. Heidi not only became our Miss July 1981, but she also acted in television shows like T.J. Hooker, Cheers and Renegade. However, when she heard she landed movie roles in Steve Martin’s Roxanne and in Dan Aykroyd’s and Chevy Chase’s Spies like Us, she felt like she truly made it. “Since I arrived in LA, my outlook on the future has changed a great deal. I have a sense of expectation. I like the people here—they seem to be easygoing and they’re not so serious about life,” says our Miss July 1981. “But, some day, I hope to have the best of both worlds, to be able to live here and have a place in Vancouver, too.” No matter where she lives, the talented and beautiful Heidi Sorenson will always be welcomed with open arms.
