Having made her breakthrough at 16, winning an International Supermodel Competition, she has traveled the world gracing the covers of countless magazines including British She, Italian Grazia, Australian Vogue and Cosmopolitan. Bianca’s career took a different turn when she made her acting debut appearing as a semi-regular character on America’s No.1 sci-fi show, Farscape. Bianca’s recently finished her first feature film "Toxic” starring Tom Sizemore, C.Tomas Howel, Ling Bai which is set for release by The Weinstien Company Summer 2008. Bianca has also appeared in Guest Roles on USA’s Award winning “Monk” starring Tony Shalhoub, NBC’s “Charmed” alongside Rose McGowen, ABC’s “Emily’s Reasons Why Not” Starring Heather Graham and most recently the Golden Globe winning comedy “Ugly Betty”. She has been profiled doing correspondence work for “E!” News and “Looking Good”.

One project that Bianca produced herself is an Independent Feature Film, in which she stars along side Academy Award Nominee: Peter Fonda “Ulees Gold, Easy Rider”, Shane Brolley “Underworld”, Tania Raymond “Lost” and Trevor Ettienne “Pirates of the Caribbean”. The film titled “Japan” is currently in postproduction and set to be released in the festival circuit of 2008.

Bianca’s modeling career began in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia, when she and a friend went around to the modeling agencies with a few photographs taken in their back yard and unknown to their parents. She had no idea how far it would go, but Bianca was signed that day and sent of to her first audition, which she booked and shot the following afternoon. From this, her career took off and Bianca has since worked for such designers internationally as: Armani, Stella McCartney, Escada, Burberry, Moschino, Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Colette Dinnigan and Akira Isagowa. In September 2006, Bianca made her stage debut in Los Angeles, in an original work by renound Casting Director Rick Pagano “X Men 2, Hotel Rwanda”. She played six characters, learning Russian and Arabic Languages, Southern and East Coast American and English Dialects. The reviews appearing in the Hollywood Reporter, Variety and LA Times depicted her performance as “Saving the best for last!. The focused, diverse and impressive performance of Bianca Chiminello (six roles) was worth the trip to Hollywood”.

On a personal front, Bianca’s cultivated a keen interest for eastern philosophy, it has taken her to India, Japan, China and Indonesia. She is now living in Los Angeles, is an avid participant in Bikram Yoga, spends her down time watching movies and learning as much as she can about cinema, her favoutries include; “Anything Cate Blanchette’s in”, “John Cassavetes’s Films, especially with Gena Rowlands” and “a good film noir, I just discovered Double Indemnity, I love Barbara Staynwick.” With her love of life, her own undeniable beauty, exuberance and natural charm are signs that her phenomenal success so far is only the beginning.
